How Earth Rewards points offset your carbon footprint
After your transaction is successfully recorded, Earth Rewards will begin to process your reward points and send them to your wallet in the app. Every single point goes towards supporting our certified rainforest protection partners in the Amazon Rainforest. You can then use your points to offset your carbon emissions for free! Once you have earned some Earth Rewards points you can start to offset your CO2! Every point has a carbon equivalent value of 1kg CO2e that is offset once that point is spent. If we were to offset our train to work and back it would cause approximately 20kg of CO2e due to the train’s emissions. Therefore, we’d need 20 Earth Rewards points to offset that impact. Pretty straightforward, right? If you want to learn more about carbon offsetting and how Earth Rewards points offset your carbon emissions, we’ve got you covered right here.

Are the retailers sustainable?
It’s so important to us that our retailers are taking the right steps to reduce their carbon impact and operate sustainably such as using recyclable or biodegradable packaging, vegan or plant-based products or offsetting the company’s emissions. Sustainable choices are at the core of Earth Rewards’ beliefs and whilst It’s impractical to live a “carbon zero” lifestyle, we believe we can all make small changes to our everyday habits that are better for us and the planet. This starts with reducing our carbon footprint and offsetting the impacts we can’t always avoid to live a balanced lifestyle that’s a little kinder to the planet. That’s why as well as shopping and earning points, we empower our members to track, reduce and offset their carbon footprint from the Earth Rewards app.
How do I track my carbon footprint?
Take advantage of free carbon tracking directly from your Earth Rewards Tracker in the app to start calculating and measuring your everyday carbon impact: heating the home, running the car, catching a train or a post-lockdown vacation. We all have a carbon footprint, we just don’t all know what it looks like or understand how we can reduce it. From a flight right down to a cup of coffee, Earth Rewards members track, reduce and offset every step of their carbon footprint using data provided by Professor Mike Berners Lee, a leading carbon footprint expert.
