The Food Co-op invites you to celebrate Earth Day by collecting garbage from local beaches on Saturday, April 25th. You’ll receive a $5 Co-op coupon/voucher, as our way of saying ‘thank you.’
To participate, meet outside the Co-op sometime between 1 and 4 pm, where volunteers from the Marine Science Center will give you instructions and the supplies you need. Then head out to any local beach to pick up trash.
Be sure to sign in by 4:00pm at the latest, so you will have time to collect trash before the event ends at 5:00pm. After you’ve collected a nice bag of trash, return to the Co-op at 5:00pm, where volunteers will help you sort your trash for recycling and give you your voucher.
Vouchers are good toward anything at the Co-op. Get a snack at the deli after your hard work, or a refreshing beverage, or just take $5 off your purchases. (NOTE: Vouchers are good for a one time purchase. No change will be given if you don’t use the entire amount. They expire at the end of April.)
In addition, at 5:00pm we’ll have a drawing and give away two $25 Cooper Cards, good for Co-op purchases. (Must be present to win.)
This event is sponsored by the Marine Science Center and the Food Co-op. The Food Co-op’s participation is a joint effort of S.U.R.F. (the staff Sustainability Resource Fellowship) and MEC (the board Member Engagement Committee). See you there!
