New York, NY – February 18, 2021 – Po Campo, the leading maker of stylish, functional, and sustainable bags for the micromobility lifestyle, announces an innovative giveback program with ShoppingGives that will be available to all of their customers, including those purchasing Po Campo bags at other retailers or storefronts. The new program, co-developed with ShoppingGives specifically for Po Campo, begins this month, and aims to allow all of Po Campo’s customers to make a meaningful impact on their local community.
ShoppingGives is a social impact commerce platform that empowers retailers and brands with end-to-end donation management and integrates social impact into the customer journey. Ordinarily, the ShoppingGives technology allows brands to donate a percentage of a customer’s purchase to a cause of the customer’s choice, at no extra cost to the consumer. Through the innovative and flexible approach of ShoppingGives Technology, Po Campo will now allow customers who purchase their bags at partners like REI, Amazon and other storefronts to scan a QR code on the Po Campo hang tag and designate the charity of their choice as the recipient of the donation. If the customer chooses not to select a charity, Po Campo has designated three causes – World Bicycle Relief, 1% for the Planet, and Safe Routes to School – as donation recipients. Po Campo is committed to giving back 1% of MSRP on every purchase of a Po Campo bag.
“We know that our customers are already passionate about getting involved locally, whether that means their local bike non-profit or a cycling advocacy organization that has a direct impact on their community. For so many cyclists, bike commuters, scooter users, and others, that’s just part of their DNA – they want to be active in making a difference,” says Po Campo founder and industrial designer Maria Boustead. “We were already excited to partner with ShoppingGives to streamline our giveback program, but we really wanted to extend our giveback program to include all of our customers. We wanted our giveback program to be as innovative as the bags we make.”
“We love being brought opportunities to innovate with our partners, and Po Campo’s goal of connecting every purchase – online or offline – with impact is exactly what we are focused on here at ShoppingGives. Their vision and focus on the individual customers positions them where we believe the future of commerce is headed, and we are excited to be by their side as a partner,” says Ronny Sage, CEO of ShoppingGives.
As a brand, Po Campo is known for uncompromising devotion to uniting fashion and function. The brand’s distinctive features include stylish vegan, weatherproof fabric, highly reflective elements, multiple functional pockets, and subtle, durable straps that can be tucked away when not used for attaching to a bike or scooter. Under Boustead’s leadership, the brand’s devotion to versatility has led to many “firsts”– the first brand to introduce a bag for bike share, the first to introduce bike bags with an integrated power supply, and the first bike bag brand to cater exclusively to the growing and underserved micromobility population. Now, by partnering with ShoppingGives, Po Campo will be the first to pilot a new model for allowing all of their customers to give back to the non-profit organization of their choice.
