Educational Play with Schleich I'm a big fan of learning through play. Unforced educational play. I'm not a teacher and I don't want to be. I want my children to naturally learn whilst they are having fun. When I was contacted recently...

Ice Ice Baby…

The Review Team from Sussex Mummy was recently invited to Tulleys Farm, Crawley to meet Jude from “Ice” for a chat… and cake. Who’d refuse cake?! “Ice” is a loyalty points scheme but this one is totally different to any you may be part of already. It focuses on sustainable products and services and hopes to mitigate climate change through shopping power – fab or what? By shopping online or in associated stores you collect “Ice Points” which you can then redeem against future purchases. What I love about “Ice” is that ALL points are spendable and you don’t need to use just “Ice Points” for purchases. For example if you have just 25 “Ice Points” you can still use them against a purchase and pay cash for the rest. There are no restrictions on how many points you can use – you can spend just 1 “Ice Point” if that’s all you have. Its that flexible.

Shopping with “Ice” couldn’t be simpler and there is such a wide range of products and services available. Well known “green” brands such as Marks & Spencer, John Lewis and Eurostar and mixed in with lesser known stores such as Love Lula, Vintage Roots and Mimimyne. You can shop with these brands either directly at their website or by ordering vouchers to spend in store. You collect points with every purchase, and these points can then be redeemed at any of the retailers. A selection of Farm Shops like Tulleys are also involved, and you can pick up a physical “Ice Card” at these locations and then assign the card to your online account. If you visit Tulleys you can collect and redeem points on any purchases in the cafe – I highly recommend the cakes – or in the farm shop itself where you can get a lovely range of fresh produce.

To find out more about “Ice” and where to shop in your local area, to sign up for an account, and to get shopping, visit their website now.
