The Bring-a-Bag Campaign, launched on Earth Day 2011, is the Co-op’s way to give back to the community and promote the conservation of natural resources. Every time a shopper brings their own reusable shopping bag or basket instead of using a new paper bag provided by the Co-op, the campaign fund is credited for each bag saved. The savings in the campaign fund are donated every six months to a local organization or project selected by the Co-op Owners. The campaign cycle runs from now runs from January to June and July to December. Two recipients are selected every year in April.
