Bring your reusable shopping bag
Natural Grocers is doubling down on donations for local food banks! Since Earth Day 2009, Natural Grocers has led the fight to reduce single-use plastic and paper bags and end food insecurity in the communities they serve, by eliminating single-use plastic and paper bags from checkout lanes and by donating five cents to local food banks every time a customer shops with a reusable bag. So far, the company has donated over one million dollars to local food banks and estimates it has eliminated over 300 million single-use plastic bags from contaminating the environment.
During the month of April, the organic and natural retailer will double its donation to local food banks. Instead of donating 5 cents per shopping trip, Natural Grocers will donate 10 cents. Nearly 70 food banks in 19 states benefit from the donations accumulated when customers bring in their reusable shopping bags.
In addition, during the month of April, Natural Grocers will also donate $1 to local food banks for each purchase of the new Ladybug Love reusable shopping bag, retailing at $2.99.
Pledge to protect the ladybug
Plus, in celebration of Earth Day on April 22, Natural Grocers invites the community to pledge to protect one of nature's most beneficial insects – the ladybug. Shoppers will be asked to vow to never use chemicals that harm ladybugs or other beneficial insects and pledge to support 100 percent organic produce. For every pledge, Natural Grocers will donate 10 cents, up to a total donation of $25,000, to Beyond Pesticides, a non-profit organization that works with allies to protect public health and the environment to lead the transition to a world free of toxic pesticides.
