online affinity schemes

From what I can gather "consommation solidaire" as an online phenomenon is where supporters download a piece of software from a charity website and then a small percentage of the price of any purchases they subsequently make online goes to the charity. The same has been in place for many years on credit cards.

As well as this kind of appeals fundraising there are several other uses of new media, including enabling online donations via the charity’s website, communication with donors via email or text, or affinity schemes in which supporters can ensure that their chosen charity receives a percentage of payments made in online shopping.

Soliland est un outil de consommation solidaire sur Internet. Vous pouvez donc soutenir l’association Théodora en faisant vos achats dans plus de 400 magasins.

Passez à l’action, ça ne prend que 2 minutes !

1) Inscrivez vous en téléchargeant le logiciel Soliland depuis cette page :

Une fois installé, plus rien à faire ! Sur chacun de vos achats, un pourcentage sera automatiquement collecté au profit de l’association Théodora et ça ne vous coutera pas plus cher !

  -> yes, although the majority are charities, the beneficiary could be a university, a sports club, or any organisation with which you have an 'affinity'. The original text doesn't mention charity - just my lazy shorthand answer!

ethical consumption

Fair-trade consumption, responsible consumption, sustainable consumption...all are related really.

neutral  Irene McClure: I thought this too at first, but it doesn't fit the "outil...sur l'internet" bit. The software that you can download from charity websites means that purchases of anything (not just fairtrade products) using a credit card mean the charity gets a donation

  -> Yes, you're right. I can't find the term in En though...
