Today, millions of people from all over the world will celebrate Earth Day by raising awareness about the importance of protecting our planet. One of the biggest issues is deforestation, where logging companies cut down countless trees each year for wood and paper products. According to SavingStar, more than 13 million trees are used each year to print paper coupons, and what’s even worse is 99 percent of the coupons are never used!
Last week, Mobeam announced that consumers are now able to use our popular Beep’nGo mobile app on the newly released Samsung Galaxy S5. Along with saving time and money and the checkout line, you’re also helping to reduce the amount of paper coupons by getting great deals and savings opportunities straight from your mobile device via Beep’nGo.
Environmental reporters have been picking up at this added benefit of our technology. A recent article from Ecopreneurist summed up the problem with both paper coupons, as well as plastic gift and loyalty cards:
“Giving out coupons and discounts printed on paper, as well as loyalty cards and gift cards on plastic wallet cards, can be an effective method for businesses to get more customers through the doors, or to engender brand loyalty, but they have two big drawbacks. First, they use precious physical resources to print and distribute them, and second, because they have to be presented at the register, using them requires that the customer has the actual coupon or card with them when they go shopping.”
Mobeam solves both of those issues with Beep’nGo. Not only does the app reduce the amount of precious resources going to creating these promotions for consumers, but we also make it much convenient for shoppers. Now you don’t have to worry about forgetting any of your coupons at home.
An article from Cleantechnica praised Mobeam’s revolutionary technology as both an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional coupons, and as another way to save:
“Using your smartphone over a store scanner, companies would be killing two birds with one stone (or saving them with one swipe?): reducing the amount of trees cut down while also cutting down on inefficiencies and inconveniences.”
With Beep’nGo, there’s no need for plastic cards or paper coupons – it’s the only app you can use anywhere you shop, including your local supermarket, pharmacy, retail and sporting goods stores, office supplies and home improvement stores!
