Actions speak louder than words. That’s why we use Vicinity Badges to help you navigate your shop based on social and environmental values that are important to you and to us. People who align purchasing behaviour and their values feel happier and because Vicinity makes it convenient you can relax more. We even encourage having some fun playing Badge Bingo or Pokemon Go (gotta collect ‘em all) with our badges to see how many great things you can support just buying essential groceries 🙂
