Community Natural Foods kicked off the Change for the Earth Program on Earth Day 2012. Currently, for every reusable bag you bring and for every container you bring to fill with bulk items, you will receive a 2 cent credit that you can choose to donate to 1 of our monthly local charity/organizations representing PEOPLE, COMMUNITY, AND THE PLANET. Community Natural Foods matches Change for the Earth token donations each month.
By reducing waste, you are saving money, helping our planet AND giving back to our local community.
Since the inception of the Change for the Earth Program, we have together raised the following amounts:
Total since 2012: $213,387.07
