Rewards4Earth and Erth Terms & Conditions

What is Rewards4Earth™?

1. We are both a philanthropic organisation and a business operating a rewards points loyalty program designed to help clubs, churches, charities and not-for-profits (CCC’s) benefit by monetizing their loyalty. While at the same time benefitting all of their supporters by finding them great deals from those businesses and gifting them Erth™ loyalty reward points. We also benefit businesses by providing the CCC supporters as potential customers, enabling the businesses to make more sales and save on marketing as the business only PAY-per-SALE rather than per-click. We do all of this and we also help save planet Earth. Collectively businesses spend hundreds of billions every year on marketing, so there is no shortage of money, we are the Economic Solution to our Environmental Problems. Our key objectives, POLICE are: plastic clean-up and recycling worldwide, ocean rejuvenation, local causes such as drought, fire and flood relief in Australia, endangered species preservation, clean energy technology, education on how we can all help save the planet, reforestation and tree planting. A small part of every transaction from every business to every supporter in the Erth™ points system will be used to fund environmental projects around the world and help save planet Earth from all of the destruction mankind forces upon it.

2. We operate under a patent in accordance with the Patents Act 1990 (Cth) within the Commonwealth of Australia.
