Do you go wild for daily deals or do you find them overwhelming? I subscribe to a bunch....but I have to admit....I've never bought a thing from any of them. I find I just can't keep up with all the emails. On any given day I might take a peek at one or two and while I love checking out cool, new products, unless I have a specific need for something, I am not likely to press the BUY button.
Green, health or cause-minded consumers have no shortage of daily sites to choose from. Here are the eco-minded daily sites on my radar:
Eco Mom - An kid-focused eco-conscious shopping site offering organic food, skincare, toys, clothing, baby gear, home safety products and more. The nice thing is that you can still find the product (albeit at full price) after the daily deal is over. Sample Daily Deal: LOVE reusable stash-it bags at almost 50% off + free shipping.
Blissmo - Organic and eco-friendly products at up to 70% off. The company mission is to promote sustainable consumption for a happier, healthier people & planet. Deals last for 2-3 days but once the deal is done, it's done. Sample Daily Deal: 3-Tier Tiffin with Carrier Bag and Bamboo Utensil Set from To-Go Ware: $53 Value for $25 (53% savings).
Green Deals - Discounts and deals from local and national green online businesses approved by Green America. Deals appear to last for about a week. Sample Daily Deal: 33% off All-Natural Shampoo, Conditioner, and Lotion from Sonoma Soap Company.
Daily Grommet - An online marketplace with a daily feature created to help people buy products and services that align with their values. You won't necessarily be getting a special price but this is a really great place to find unique products that you won't find anywhere else. Features include products for green and eco-living, health and wellness, food and drink, fair trade gifts and even donations to charitable organizations. Sample Daily Feature: Moultonology Garden Bon Bons - seed balls that look like chocolate truffles - you have to see them to believe!
Milkshake - Another feel-good marketplace selling "goods that give back". Milkshake invites readers to discover products, people, causes and companies that are making a difference and then inspires them to take action. Similar to Daily Grommet, the focus is less on the "deal" and more on spending your dollar wisely. Sample Daily Feature: Blackberry Farm Pickles and Preserves - straight from a working farm in the Great Smokey Mountains of Tennessee.
Other daily deal sites like Groupon and Mamapedia occasionally offer eco-friendly products and locally targeted deals but you have to wade through a lot of stuff you probably don't want or need before you find anything of interest.
What daily sites do you subscribe to? Have you ever actually bought anything? Do you think they provide a helpful service or just encourage consumerism?
