The Green Pound is a new Green currency that clearly badges which businesses are Green. Green Pounds can be spent in the best green establishments that are working to reduce Carbon Emissions and their impact on the environment. The Green Pound can also be donated to local charity.

Whether its Entertainment, Fashion, Holidays, Eating Out, Personal Fitness or Gifts, we can make everyone Green - The Green Pound offers something for all. Please check our regularly updated list of Green Businesses that fulfil Manchester Metropolitan University Criteria. Read our endorsements

Money from the Green Pound is given to our partner ‘Foundation’ - A Climate Fund for the Northwest and used for carbon reduction projects. Each voucher has a carbon emission saving when compared to a standard pound and our aim is to inspire and promote Green business practice and to significantly reduce carbon emissions.

Green Pounds help Green business and are bought by anyone interested in truly meaningful Gifts and Presents, Ethical Rewards, Reducing CO2, fulfilling Corporate and Social Responsibility or just because they want to exchange a Pound for a Green Pound. You can buy vouchers online here and at some partner companies.
