The Bag it Forward donation program allows the Co-op to offer our customers a 10¢ incentive for each bag you use and then we ask if you’d like to donate your dime to a local non-profit organization. We match every bag incentive forwarded to charity; that’s two donations for the price of one! Potentially, every reusable bag you use equals 20¢ donated to a local non-profit organization. 

In 2017 – 2018, we’ve donated over $6,000 to various local organizations.

Reusing bags reduce wastes, energy use, and materials needed for disposable bag production. And in many cases durable cloth or plastic bags can hold more without breaking or tearing.
