Sustainably – a new way of living and giving

Support the causes you care about every time you shop – controlled by your mobile. And when you donate, so do retailers and your employer.

Sustainably puts the power of living and giving into your mobile.  

Simply choose your good causes, add a round up amount and your credit and debit cards in our app.  Then every time you buy on your cards or connected devices, you donate.  And you can pause it or change it all at any time.  

Set it and forget it or get more involved…

With Sustainably, you can follow your favourite brands and celebs to see what causes they support.  Get real time updates every time you donate to understand your impact.  Receive impact points to get rewards for good behaviour from our partner organisations and track your impact over time.  Connect with your friends to see what causes they support.  See what’s trending locally and globally.  We believe it’s about how often, not how much, you donate and we will never share how much you donate on the platform.  

Pledge now to get your co-creator organic cotton T-shirt or shopper.




Sustainably is more than just you giving.  It’s an ecosystem that gets businesses who want to be more ethical and sustainable giving back.  When you donate, they donate to your good causes too.  So it’s a great way for businesses and employers to show their customers, communities and employees they care.  

For charities, it’s a new way to fundraise and communicate impact in real time and a new way to understand more about what their supporters care about.

Sustainably is a tech for social good company, co-founded by Loral and Eishel Quinn, who are a mother and daughter team based in Edinburgh, Scotland. It is a for-profit company where profit allows it to reinvest in purpose. Sustainably won the Edinburgh fintech hackathon in April. “Incredibly impressive. Simple and brilliant.” Kent Mackenzie, Deloitte UK

Loral is ex-head of digital marketing and strategy for a global investment company and wanted to take her skills for digital and scaling business and combine it with her passion for changing the world. Eishel has a background in organic retail and is the eco-warrior and driving force behind the Sustainably brand and ecosystem.

Sustainably uses a similar model to that of Acorns investing platform in the US which rounds up your everyday purchases into your investment portfolio.  Acorns has raised $61 million in investment, most recently from a round of investors including PayPal, and claims more than 850,000 active investment accounts. With Sustainably, instead of putting money into your investment portfolio, you donate it to the causes you care about.

Sustainably will generate revenue from advertising  and sponsorship.  All donations will go to the charities. 

Sustainably is currently on the Entrepreneurial Spark accelerator, powered by the Royal Bank of Scotland.
