Earth Day 2021

Earth Day 2021
April 21, 2021 Lena Tito

At the Co-op, good health and sustainability go hand in hand. We must all do our part to work together and care for our planet, and for us, that means carrying B Corp Certified brands, calling out efforts to prioritize sustainable packaging, and looking at ways to give back to environmental efforts. Whether donating 1% of Co-op Coffee Co. profits to Heal the Bay, planting a tree for every new Co-op member with One Tree Planted, or working with organizations like Food Cycle and Food Forward to fight food waste, our Co-op community is making a difference in so many ways.

Here’s a list of what’s on our radar this week for Earth Day – petitions, books and upcoming events to inspire and help us all carry on our mission.
