PriceGrabber.co.uk launches ShopGreen to help UK shoppers with their ‘green’ resolutions

New section offers ecofriendly products and provides users with quick, easy steps toward a “greener” life

London, England, January 2, 2008 — PriceGrabber.co.uk®, a part of Experian, today announced the launch of ShopGreen, which offers consumers a comprehensive comparison shopping section of “green” products. The new section is available at http://shopgreen.pricegrabber.co.uk and currently offers a selection on thousands of products. Initial stores with products featured on ShopGreen include Ethical Superstore, Comet, Vintage Roots and Natural Collection.

“As ‘green shopping’ emerges as a new category with thousands of products, it can be difficult for environmentally conscious consumers to navigate the space,” said Russ Carroll of PriceGrabber.co.uk. “Last year, the environment really became a topic of great concern, and people in the UK are looking for a way to make a difference in any way they can. We expect that being more caring about the environment will be one of the top new year’s resolutions for 2008. ShopGreen provides a broad selection of green products in one cohesive section of the site, helping people to make the most informed purchase decisions, at the best price.”

PriceGrabber.com is not only The Smart Place to Start Your Shopping®, it also encourages shoppers to consider the environment when making purchases. In addition to including environmentally friendly products in categories such as Home, His/Hers and Office, ShopGreen features a blog offering easy tips on leading a greener life and discussing ecological issues. Similar to other categories on PriceGrabber.co.uk, ShopGreen continues to provide users with additional resources, such as product reviews and merchant ratings and reviews, to find the right product, at the best price, from the right retailer. The launch of ShopGreen reinforces PriceGrabber.co.uk’s commitment to being the most innovative and comprehensive site in the online comparison shopping industry.
