·4 min read

LONDON, Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Whilst most countries and businesses are still struggling with the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Voucher Shares has continued its donations to World Land Trust – the International Conservation charity. This commitment helps to make this year's sustainable Christmas shopping choices easier and more affordable for millions of UK consumers who are struggling to come to terms with both the effects on their own household budgets, and the wider Climate Emergency problem.

Voucher Shares CEO, Tatiana Larsen, says:

"VoucherShares.co.uk was launched in 2019 with Sustainability at its heart. While the global lockdown brought us challenges, similar to many other businesses, we feel that it's our duty to focus on a long-term goal.

"When helping to save money on everyday online shopping, like every other voucher codes website, Voucher Shares also continues to support the World Land Trust Action Fund for the second year running. With many businesses and individuals cutting down their spending budgets at the moment, conservation charities need financial support now more than ever. The World Land Trust Action Fund offers support to the most urgent conservation projects globally, and in many cases, it is the last chance to save endangered forests, wildlife and unique habitats, working alongside WLT's local conservation partners.

"I have seen deforestation first-hand, and along with my friend, colleague, and Voucher Shares' co-founder Miranda Coombes, we are determined to help protect endangered forest habitat through our business.

"Both mothers and experienced businesswomen, we believe starting at a grass roots level is key to ensuring our planet is protected for generations to come."

Voucher Shares is well aware of the consumer's mindset shifting into the direction of sustainability, but it needs to happen faster. That is why Voucher Shares has made it its mission to make sustainable shopping easier and more accessible for many.

Voucher Shares asked: How sustainable is online shopping? And how can we make our Christmas shopping more sustainable?

At the beginning of what is set to be the busiest shopping season of 2020, Voucher Shares introduced a Sustainable Products category, and whilst all shoppers are encouraged to choose sustainable fashion brands, it is understandable that shoppers are more likely to opt for goods that fit their budgets and sometimes choose affordability over sustainability.

By supporting World Land Trust, Voucher Shares helps mitigate the potential negative online shopping impact. This way Voucher Shares helps us make our shopping not only cheaper, but also more sustainable, regardless of the brand we are choosing and our budgets. This offers an accessible way to protect habitats and help address the climate crisis. In this time of urgent need, Voucher Shares must be creative in how we help our Planet and encourage everyone to take part too.

Sustainable fashion just got easier this Christmas.
