“Make Change. Not Waste” is a green living initiative that rewards Whole Foods Market® shoppers with coupons for green lifestyle actions, while raising awareness and donations to alleviate global poverty through the Whole Planet Foundation microcredit. The app provides Whole Foods Market customers with badges and coupons from a catalog of green lifestyle behaviors like using a reusable bag, recycling and biking to work. After completing 10 green actions, the customer can unlock one of more than seven coupons from leading green brands including:
• Alexia Foods
• Dr. Bronner’s
• Frontier Co-op
• Garden of Life (NEW!)
• Organic Valley
• Nature’s Path
• TruRoots (NEW!)
• Whole Foods Market (NEW!)
or they can choose to donate a percentage of the coupon value back to the Whole Planet Foundation.
Each month, the application allows you to track your green activities and provides Whole Foods Market coupons that are exclusive to the app user community.
Let’s all start living greener and enjoy great products at the same time.
What's New in Version 1.17
Minor bug fixes and improvements
Updated mission statement
Fun to be green
This app is great. It lets you track your green deeds and getting coupons for Whole Foods is icing on the cake. Our family loves it!
I gave it 4/5 only because so far, all the coupons i have redeemed for are missing important information such as whether it is a manufacturer or store coupon, expiration date ("no expiration date" would suffice if that is the case) and remit instructions which would include the address the store must send them to in order to be reimbursed. This is absolutely necessary for stores to get their money from the manufacturer otherwise they could be denied and deemed counterfeit. I hope someone looks into it soon.
How Does One Get Badges???
It's a great app, and I have earned several coupons , but I am really frustrated with the earning badges part of it. I am #2 on the activities leader board, but month after month, the app tells me that I have earned all of the badges for the month , so I am stuck at 9. That happened the first week in Jan and though it said that I earned all of the coupons for the month, I actually
Received none. I wrote app support, no response. This app is meant to have you log check ins daily as you do them btw, not 200+ at a time like RayJ is doing. Anyway, dispite updates, I don't see any of these issues improving after months of using the app. Poor.
Makes me feel like I'm doing something
I recycle and advocate sustainability. I've been asked, "what difference do you think one person can make?" This app gives me a way of quantifying my efforts. Even if its just symbolic or if the dollar amounts are small, I am doing something and it does matter.
