Woot as a way to garner steep discounts on random products. It's a site that has grown in popularity thanks to one simple catch: supplies are limited and there's only 24 hours to make the purchase.Chasing a good deal is always a popular pursuit. And with the current economic conditions, saving money has never been more important. Many look to shopping site
Now, a new discount site has taken the Woot model and made it decidedly earth-friendly. So you'll be saving green - while being green. Meet EcoSteal.
Like Woot, EcoSteal offers one discounted product at time. Unlike Woot, there doesn't appear to be a time limit. The product remains available until supplies are exhausted. At the moment, for example, there's a Mountainsmith women's backpack that's made of 100% recycled materials available for $40 US - less than half the retail price.
And while the products are fleeting, EcoSteal asserts that being socially conscious about purchases isn't: "Being green is not a fad. It is not trendy. It is a new way of life that we all must live by and embrace." One thing is for sure: saving money and doing something good for the planet is a combination that's going to attract a number of fans.
EcoSteal users have the option of buying up to three of the available product. In addition to the discounted price, they'll be charged for shipping. (Unfortunately for our non-US readers, EcoSteal is currently only shipping to the United States.) All purchases are final, unless there is a defect or error on EcoSteal's part.
