Why Verdn?

Verdn can increase customer engagement by up to 10x by effortlessly attaching environmental pledges to any product or service. Brands using Verdn have pledged to plant over 500,000 trees and recover over 200,000kg of ocean plastic.

This allows merchants to support world-leading NGOs, give back easily, and create an entirely new post-purchase loop.

Verdn has a fully transparent ethos, providing impact tracking to both the company and the end customer.

The benefits of integrating Verdn with LoyaltyLion

The integration will cater to your conscious consumers by giving them alternative ways to use their loyalty points against sustainable loyalty rewards.

This aligns loyalty programs with key environmental causes as part of a broader strategy, or an easy first step on a sustainability journey.

Businesses can expect to see more customer engagement in a positive context. The click-through rate of Verdn emails on environmental tracking is consistently over 20% (10x higher than email marketing benchmarks). Customers rate the content of the tracking dashboards at an average of 4.8/5 (February 2022)

How does the Verdn integration work?

Merchants create rewards that trigger various types of environmental and social impact.

Customers are actively engaged in sustainable practice when they redeem the points they earned via activity rules against impact rewards.

Some of the impact rewards available:

  • Ocean plastic cleanup

  • Tree planting

  • Coral planting

Verdn then sends them a dashboard where they can track updates about the progress of those impacts.

You can find Verdn in the Shopify app store here.
