TORONTO, Dec. 3 /CNW/ - ClickGreener Inc., a groundbreaking new Canadian
company, has launched www.ClickGreener.com, just in time for the holiday
season. www.ClickGreener.com is the world's first online shopping mall that
empowers people to make their ordinary purchases greener - and help raise tens
of thousands of dollars for the environment - all at no extra cost to the
"Each year, online shopping malls earn millions of dollars in referral
fees," said Owen Ward, President of ClickGreener. "We've decided to harness
this power and use it to help the environment, by donating just over half of
our referral fees to environmental non-profits."
Visitors to www.ClickGreener.com will find many of North America's
leading online retailers of electronics, books, DVDs, clothing and more. By
clicking on their retailer of choice, visitors will be connected to that
retailer's online store, where they can complete their purchase as usual. For
every purchase made this way, ClickGreener donates 51% of the referral fee
from that purchase to leading non-profit environmental organizations,
including WWF-Canada, the Canadian Wildlife Federation, Tree Canada and
Carbonfund.org. All of this is done at no additional cost to the shopper.
"Canadians are looking for ways to contribute in a positive way to the
environment," continued Mr. Ward. "For every purchase made through
ClickGreener, Canadians will make a contribution to organizations working hard
to protect and preserve our environment."
"If only 1% of online purchases in Canada were made through ClickGreener,
approximately $1,000,000 will be raised every year. With the value of online
shopping expected to double by 2011, the possibilities are truly inspiring."
In addition, ClickGreener gives visitors access to promotional offers
from many of its retailers, including deals that are not available to the
general public. ClickGreener also identifies green products from its
participating retailers to help people maximize their positive impact on the
"Instead of dreaming of a white Christmas this year, we are giving
Canadians an easy way to make it a greener holiday season," Mr. Ward adds.
"Moreover, with access to many great deals, visitors to ClickGreener will also
save a bit of that green for themselves!"
