Live sustainably with Econus: how it works

When it comes to sustainability, things like public transit and avoiding unneccesary shopping are number one. But, when those options aren’t realistic (or that sale is just too good to pass up), there’s Econus.

How it works ↓

Purchases + causes

Link the purchases you make with the causes you care about most

Live your best life

Whenever Econus recognizes that you’ve made a purchase that affects your causes, we’ll Round-Up the spare change

Automatically donate your spare change

At the end of the month, we will automatically donate your spare change to the non-profits you’ve chosen to offset your impact!

Like this ↓

In the following example (3), whenever any clothing is purchased, we donate to Responsibility in Fashion with a note asking them to use the donation to make fashion more sustainable (equal wages, improved conditions, etc)


1) Food + Shopping
2) Gas + Travel
3) Clothing


1) Plastic Pollution Coalition
2) Clean Air Task Force
3) Responsibility in Fashion


1) Waste
2) Air Pollution
3) Sustainable Fashion

We’ll be in the background offsetting the unintended consequences that come from living it.

Consequences like air pollution from a tank of gas, or waste from a fast food meal.

A Round-Up is the spare change collected when we round up your purchases to the nearest dollar. Set a 2x, 3x or 10x multiplier to increase your impact!

Buy a tank of gas for $25.67, we’ll Round-Up to $26 and use the $0.33 in spare change to offset your impact.

With a 3x multiplier, that’d be a $0.99 donation!


A Persona is a collection of the causes you care about most, the purchases that affect those causes, and a non-profit you believe in to offset the impact.

Create your own Persona or follow your favorite eco-influencer’s to crowdfund alongside your tribe!

Whenever we see that you’ve made a purchase that impacts your causes (via your linked card), we’ll Round-Up your spare change and donate it to your chosen non-profit.


– Going on a trip? Buy that tank of gas for $26.27, we’ll Round-Up to $27 and use your $0.73 spare change for things like tighter fuel efficiency standards.

– Need to satisfy a craving? Grab that burger for $12.36, we’ll donate your $0.64 spare change to organizations researching things like meatless alternatives.

The possibilities are (nearly) endless.
