Why Klarna is the one app to (sustainably) shop it all

In partnership with Klarna

The Klarna app’s clever CO2 tracker is helping us shop more sustainably

You’re probably pretty up to speed on the benefits of Klarna.

Allowing you to buy the things you love now and pay for them later, Klarna just about revolutionised how we shop – from allowing customers up to 30 days to pay for purchases post-shipping, to offering us the option to pay in 3 equal monthly instalments without interest, fees or impact on our credit score.

But did you know that the Klarna app can also help you shop more sustainably?

Here at Marie Claire UK, we’re longtime subscribers to the buy less buy better approach to our wardrobes. In fact, we’ve been highlighting environmental issues for over 30 years.

Here’s how Klarna is helping us stay stylish, sustainable and personally accountable for our carbon footprint.

Three key ways Klarna is helping us shop more sustainably

It allows us to invest in pieces that will last a lifetime

With 20,000 retailers – from Net-A-Porter to Vestiaire Collective – now offering Klarna as a payment method, buying wardrobe heroes that are built to last seems less like a splurge than it does a smart investment.

Whether it’s a limited edition designer drop, or an expertly crafted wardrobe staple, Klarna allows us to invest in keep-forever treasures, and pay for them in instalments – just as we would a car or piece of tech. Better still, if you find that your spring/summer wardrobe is missing that certain je nes se quoi, the app’s SELEKT feature offers a curated shopping experience with luxury collections and featured stores for inspiration.

Klarna’s clever CO2 tracker helps you keep track of your carbon footprint

Greenhouse gas emissions are the leading cause of climate change – fact. And while everything we buy online causes these gases to be emitted, the Klarna app’s clever CO2 tracker is helping us stay on top of our individual footprint. This information and transparency helps consumers make more eco-friendly choices and feel empowered when doing so.

With the brand calling it ‘one of the largest awareness efforts on carbon footprints ever embarked on’ – they have over 100 million consumers globally – the app helps consumers to better understand how their purchasing power affects the planet. Keen to give it a go for yourself? Simply open the Klarna app and see the impact of your spending habits instantly.

‘Brands have a responsibility to help consumers make the right decisions for the planet and it’s encouraging to see global organizations like Klarna taking steps in the right direction with its CO2 emissions tracker.’ Ally Head, Sustainability Editor.

It’s helped us discover some of our favourite sustainable brands

Forget multiple shopping apps hoovering up your phone’s memory. With the Klarna app, you don’t really need anything else. You can find deals, save your favourite pieces, get price drop notifications and make flexible payments at any of Klarna’s 20,000 retail partner websites, or anywhere online in the Klarna app.

One of our all-time favourite features? It’s helped us discover some amazing sustainable brands through its sustainable collection. Just like Lucy & Yak’s dungarees – which, rest assured, are as consciously made as they are cute.
