Save points for environmental and climate charities

Want to give the environment a helping hand? You can make your contribution while shopping. By choosing a product with Eco-score A or B in the store, you save points in your Xtra app. Once you have 100 points, you can support an environmental project or attend a lecture on how to live an eco-conscious life at Colruyt Group Academy.

With this initiative, we want to give you the chance to make an extra, tangible impact with the Eco-score. It allows you to make an eco-conscious choice, while also supporting an ecological project. This way, you do good for the environment twice. Together, we contribute to a more sustainable world, step by step.

How can you use your points for the environment?

With your points, you can support an environmental project. Once you have collected 100 points, you can:

  • plant a tree
  • sow 1 m² of flower meadow
  • create a 1 m² patch of nature

Or do you prefer to learn more about how to live a more conscious life? You can also use 100 points to get a discount at Colruyt Group Academy on a workshop about environmental awareness or to attend a free lecture on a variety of topics, such as:

  • ‘Climate-friendly gardening’
  • ‘Debunking packaging myths’
  • ‘Greener on the road’
  • etc.
How you divide your points is entirely up to you. Easy in the Xtra app.
