Money Saving Guide to Going Green

About CouponFollow
CouponFollow was born in 2010 with a little bit of curiosity and a whole lot of hustle. Founder and CEO Marc Mezzacca was intrigued by the popular trend of people sharing coupon codes on Twitter and Facebook but found it to be unorganized and overwhelming.

So, he set out to create something that would help sort through the coupons being shared and help shoppers find exactly what they’re looking for to help them save money.

At first, CouponFollow’s website utilized Twitter’s API to find popular codes, with those mentioned more often on social media ranking higher on CouponFollow.

Today our algorithm no longer relies solely on social media, but a much larger community (that we'd love you to join)!

Kiss the Ground reveals that, by regenerating the world’s soils, we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies.
