Epic Impact launches to provide users with a one-stop sustainable directory and rewards platform
Epic Impact is set to challenge traditional shopping behaviours with its rich directory of values-driven businesses and its unique rewards system.

"Regular reward programmes are designed purely for profit, by getting consumers to part with their money for something they don't really need, which often results in unnecessary waste. However, consumer sentiments are changing; 88% of millennial and Gen Z consumers want businesses to help them have a positive impact on the planet, so Epic Impact enables purpose-led businesses to celebrate consumers that have chosen to make a purchase that not only satisfies their wants and needs, but also contributes to the UN Sustainable Development Goals." - James Brown, CEO Epic Impact.
The launch of Epic Impact comes at a time when society's effect on the planet is at the forefront of the consumer's mind. According to a 2020 IBM survey, 40% of consumers are purpose-driven in their purchases, and a report released by Garnier in January reveals that 73% of Brits wish to be more sustainable in 2021. The industry in the UK is growing rapidly to meet demand; in 2019 ethical consumer spending had swelled by over 260% to a value of £41.1bn since 1999, a report by the Co-op revealed.
Epic Impact is a UK-based impact tech company that is committed to revolutionising the way people shop. Built around the UN Sustainable Development Goals and with a mission to make ethical and sustainable consumption the norm, responsible shopping is at the heart of what Epic Impact does. Epic Impact is a B Corp Certification Pending company backed by Adoreum among others and partnered with UK-based ethical brands such as Elvis and Kresse, Ocean Bottle and Ecotricity.
