Deal of the Day for the Socially Responsible

Hello readers, I’ve found a new website for everyone to check out! By now many people are familiar with “Groupon” – the deal-a-day website that offers you location-specific deals/coupons. While the deal-a-day concept is probably most associated with “Groupon” there are actually many similar and niche deal-a-day websites you can join! So today I am introducing you to ROOZT.COM – the deal-a-day site for those of us who consider ourselves to be part of the “socially responsible” crowd!

We all like to receive coupons or discounts on products/services we actually buy or use right? I hate flipping through pages of cat food coupons, designer check offers, coupons for fast food places I never eat at…bleh. Wouldn’t it be nice to receive a coupon circular tailored just for you!? That’s what is so great about a deal-a-day site such as Roozt.com. I already know I prefer to spend my money on products that are recycled, produced using sustainable practices, or that contribute to charities I deem valuable. Roozt has the same values and partners with companies that produce such products. AND they donate a portion of every purchase to a socially responsible non-profit which you personally select at check-out!  That’s a quick overview- let’s get into the details now…

To use Roozt you sign-up for an account on their site. This provides them with your email address to which they will send  your deal-a-day notices. Roozt features a highly discounted product each day for a limited time- often 24-48 hours or until the designated quantity is sold out. Examples of types of products they offer include:

  • fair-trade/organic coffee
  • all organic/natural skin care products
  • fair-trade or organic clothing lines
  • Eco-Bags
  • fair-trade/organic chocolates
  • eco-friendly stationery products
  • and lots more!

A sample deal would read something like this: “$33 gift card for “Brand” natural make-up for $18″ See image below:

The savings are significant. My own experience with Roozt got me an $80 gift card for only $18!!  I can personally attest to the great-ness of the deals. Each product also gets a “Roozt rating” telling you if the product is “Community Conscious” or “Organic” or “Eco-Friendly” etc.

Another thing I like about it is that it introduces me to brands and products that I wouldn’t necessarily see otherwise. And, it’s great for gift ideas. I have a wedding coming up so I am always looking for gift ideas for my 5 wonderful bridesmaids (they deserve the moon!!) and a deal-a-day site like Roozt is perfect- with my $80 gift card for only $18 I can now easily get each of my bridesmaids a product from that company and at such an affordable price! Not to mention, I am spreading the socially responsible message on to them (they don’t mind!) and supporting a company that aligns with my values.

I really encourage you to join Roozt and start learning about the companies and products featured on the site. It’s really amazing the products that people are creating these days that are eco-friendly, recycled, or that benefit society through charitable giving. Come back and share your finds and/or purchases with us here at HoG! 🙂  Enjoy!
