Green Shield Stamps were a sales promotion or incentive loyalty scheme using trading stamps, designed and deployed in the United Kingdom and Ireland to encourage or reward shopping, by being able to buy gifts. Green Shield Trading Stamp Company was founded in 1958 by entrepreneur Richard Tompkins, and the stamps were withdrawn in 1991.

In Britain during the 60s & 70s Green Shield Stamps were almost everywhere. When you bought groceries in certain shops you would get stamps to put in your savers book. When you collected so many stamps and completed your savers book you would be able to exchange your book for gifts.

Do you remember green shield stamps?
Many people will remember the green shield stamps however there were other scemes also like Gift Coupon, Happy Clubs, Thrift Stamp, Uneedus Bonus, Universal Sales Promotions or Yellow Stamps. Does anyone remember any of these?

Stamp War
A “Stamp War” broke out in 1963/4. Fine Fare starting giving away the American S & H Pink Stamps. This encouraged stores like Tesco and Priceright to start giving away green shield stamps to compete with other stores.

Green Shield Stamps and other trading stamps were more often given out in smaller shops during the early sixties. Local butchers, fishmongers, bakers and chemists etc all give out these stamps. Bigger stores then started to sign up to the scheme, stores like Tesco. It was a way of bringing in customers and building customer loyalty. The customer found this great as it meant free gifts. The retailer was the one who paid the stamp companies therefore they may have passed this cost onto the customer but in 1965 still found prices no higher n these stores that gave away the stamps.

Snippets taken from the savers book…

Land Pollution-Foxtons House Clearance

Have you ever wondered what is actually in the ground below your feet? Whether it be a tiled floor or wooden floor but what is beneath that? Foundations, pipes, cables and so on… Who knows what else there could be down there? If you keep digging further and you will then approach soil & rock and then the raw things of the earth.

LandfillFoxtons

We would like to think that these basic foundations of the earth are such pristine wilderness however that’s far from what is actually down there. Land pollution is a perfect example of where our changes have affected the earth and we are unable to see this. The poison that is given off from things like underground mines and the junk/waste that we tip into landfill van load by van load is what is actually doing the damage to our and earth and is not visible to us. We do see smoke from factory’s drifting off into the earths air and oil slicks slowly drifting off into the earths ocean and we don’t think anything by it.

Land pollution, is a lot more dangerous than we actually see it and is becoming more of a problem for our earth than we think. That’s why Foxtons House Clearance only forward our house clearance waste to pro recycling centres where it will be re-cycled and re-used in some way. This stops a lot of items going to landfill which is more environmentally friendly. Any non-perishable foods that we get from house clearances are collected and then donated to local charities or homeless centres.
