Earth Month Challenge

Earth Month Challenge

By Laura Coffee, Marketing & Owner Services Manager, Co-op Owner

You’ve probably heard of the ‘Three Rs’ – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, but what if I told you there were actually six Rs?

Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle, and Rot

Our goal this April is to challenge ourselves and our community members to explore all six Rs and the ways we can use them to improve the world around us. Join in the discussion on our Facebook event for tips, tricks, resources, and check-ins as we set goals and track our personal progress on each of these tactics.

There are many different ways you can participate in this month long challenge. A few examples include:

  • Not buying bottled water.
  • Using a refillable coffee mug.
  • Remembering your reusable shopping bags.
  • Planting pollinator friendly flowers.
  • Not removing dandelions from your lawn.
  • Prioritizing sustainable companies when shopping.

We’re going to offer some ideas and tips over the next few days and ask everyone to start making their pledges on April 1st. Stop by the store to make your pledge or show us a picture of you with your pledge in this event. Then let us know how it’s going on at least two of our weekly check-ins and you could win a 3-pack of Stasher bags and a set of aluminum party cups!
