Brands of the next decade understand Gen Z shoppers won’t concede on what matters most.

Tentree, a sustainable fashion brand, prioritizes eco-consciousness at every touchpoint. When building their loyalty program, they started with a central question: “How do we make our brand mission resonate with members while also turning them into repeat buyers?”. The brand knew shoppers would buy into a program where they could see their positive impact on the environment, so Tentree created Impact Wallet.

The engaging and interactive program allows members to track their impact on sustainability and “level up” to different Achievements. By structuring their loyalty program around social responsibility, tentree reinforces their brand mission and encourages shoppers to play an active role in combating climate change
