New Website Invites users to Shop it Forward
Elenity.com gives 50% of profit to a cause, uniting brands and shoppers through charitable shopping
[USPRwire, Sun May 11 2014] Consumers aren’t just conscious about fresh produce. Terms such as fair trade, eco-friendly, organic and ethical have begun to appear on everything from clothing tags to hashtags. Empowered consumers are making fashion statements that go beyond appearance with “buy one give one” brands such as TOMS, FEED and Warby Parker.
This shopping trend has fuelled the launch of Elenity.com, where shoppers can browse a variety of socially responsible products and benefit nonprofit organizations by giving 50% of profit to a cause.
“As the owner of an online boutique, I wanted my products to help people,” said Micadyn Sanders, founder of Micadyn Nicole and Elenity, “I realized other brands want to use their products to help too, but coordinating such an effort can be difficult. There is also a growing demand for quality, ethical products. I think together, we can make a difference.”
Elenity.com went live in April 2014 and is featuring its first charity- Share Families of Southern Utah. Share provides support for mothers and families after pregnancy, infant or child loss and educates the local community about supportive roles.
“Elenity is a fantastic concept for nonprofit organizations,” said Lacie Robinson, Coordinator for Share Families of Southern Utah, “we do most our fundraising through events, so this is an easy way to utilize the internet to broaden our reach. I am thrilled to work with them for the month of May.”
To raise additional funds, Share will hold its first Walk for Remembrance and Hope on May 10, 2014. Members and supporters will walk Main Street in Cedar City to spread awareness and remember the children who have been lost. The walk is 9 a.m. to noon. To register, visit www.southernutahshare.com.
Elenity.com is unique charitable shopping site featuring clothing, jewelry and home décor products from a variety of vendors. Shoppers support organizations through a donation of 50% of the profit from every purchase going directly to a monthly cause. In addition, the products purchased on Elenity are fair trade, eco-friendly, manufactured in the USA, or support a nonprofit organization through the manufacturing process.
