Shopping for a better world

Secure, Sustainable Shopping

Bonsum offers a highly diverse range of shopping opportunities, with everything from food and lifestyle items to financial services. Each and every provider has sustainability as a central focus and fulfils sustainable criteria with regard to their manufacturing and distribution practices. At Bonsum, you'll find a responsible shopping solution for virtually any product or service.

Collect Bonets

As soon as you've completed the free registration, you can begin collecting points. Every sustainable provider or product earns you Bonets (sustainable reward points), which are credited to your account. Check the Shop Overview to find out how many Bonets you'll earn per pound spent. Campaigns offer the chance to collect higher numbers of points than usual.
 

Redeem Bonets

At Bonsum, you don't have to collect for long before you'll have enough points to start redeeming. After just one purchase, you'll be able to donate collected points to an organisation of your choice, convert points to shopping vouchers or spend your points to plant new trees. Go ahead and treat someone else (or yourself) to a little gift!
