How does it work?
Living your best life while also taking care of the planet can be complicated.
Things like driving up a canyon to watch a beautiful sunset while enjoying a tasty meal come with so many unintended consequences, consequences like air pollution and waste.
Econus makes consumption sustainable by empowering you to offset the unintended consequences of the things you buy.
Buy a tank of gas for your drive up the canyon -> donate your spare change from that purchase to an organization researching electric vehicles to make them more affordable for the average consumer, or use it to buy carbon offsets.
Send your spare change from that tasty meal to an organization developing revolutionary new packaging or meatless alternatives.
When it comes to change, it requires money, lots. The way around that, lots of people giving all they can spare.
Live your life.
We’ll Round-Up your purchases to the nearest dollar and use the spare change to support your purpose!
Crowdfund, One-Time & Recurring Contributions
Maybe your passion is getting your favorite band gas money to play a show in your town, maybe it’s paying a friend’s medical bills.
Send one-time, recurring, or Round-Up contributions to the non-profit organizations and crowdfunding campaigns you believe in most.
Choose your level
Our plans are designed for:
1) those looking for an easy place to donate
2) those looking to reduce their ecological footprint
3) those looking to reduce their footprint, schedule and manage all donations from one location, and set up multiple crowdfunding campaigns (musicians and gas money, event planners and donation campaigns, etc)
*Fyi, the reason we charge a subscription fee is to keep our lights on (70% to us, 30% to our partners), while ensuring your chosen non-profits get the most out of your donation!
Depending on your subscription level, Econus takes 0% until you hit a set donation amount. Many of our competitors take 10-15% of all donations.
*All donations are subject to DAF distribution fee. See below for info.
Join our newsletter. We’ll only send cool stuff.
* We’ve partnered with a donor advised fund (DAF) to handle all donation distributions.
Our partner will deduct from any donation: (i) the platform fee based upon your subscription level to be sent back to The Active Consumer (Econus), and (ii) a fee equal to three-and-a-half percent (3.5%) of your Donation before disbursing the remaining amount to a charitable organization.
Our DAF partner is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. As such, all or part of your donation may be tax deductible as a charitable contribution. Please check with your tax advisor.
See our Terms and Conditions, sections 6 and 7, for more information on this partnership.
