Thanks to you, we’ve officially reached the 5 million bag mark through our Reuse and Reward program!
What does this mean?
- Our eco-friendly customers have used reusable bags 5 million times in less than five years.
- Each time a reusable bag is used, we donate five cents to Second Harvest Heartland.
- Our customers have helped us donate more than $250,000 to this nonprofit focused on hunger relief.
- More than 925,000 meals have been provided to those in need!
Twin Cities-based Second Harvest Heartland is the Upper Midwest’s largest hunger relief organization and 92% of their revenue is applied directly to their programs. With the demand for food at an all-time high, our customers are making a difference each and every time they use a reusable bag.
Whether you’re picking up a few snacks or shopping for the week, please remember to bring your reusable bags. You’re not only helping the planet, you’re providing necessary meals to those in need throughout our communities. Thank you!
