New green rewards card

Online shoppers can help reduce their carbon footprint by signing up to what's claimed to be the world’s first green rewards card.

CarbonCred, lets consumers earn green points when they shop at more than 1,000 online stores – including Boots, M&S, Argos, John Lewis and Tesco.

Shoppers can then use the points towards green lifestyle products and services - ranging from electricity on a green tariff to energy efficient boilers and energy-saving light bulbs.

To collect green points, shoppers must log on to the CarbonCred website before linking through to a store in the scheme.

Card creator Duncan Stewart said: ‘With nearly 25 million people in the UK shopping online now, greening mainstream shopping is going to make a big difference to CO2.

‘There are thousands of products available to buy with the green reward points – from folding bikes to condensing boilers...'.

Other companies to sign up include Vodaphone, BT, Nokia, Lastminute.com and British Gas.
