Community Donations through Beans for Bags
One of the Co-op’s guiding principles is the sustainable development of our community. An important way the Co-op does this is through community donations, many of which come from our Beans for Bags program.
For each disposable bag a customer doesn’t use, they can take one bean and deposit it in the bean tower under the name of a community organization. Beans serve as counters which determine the percentage of community donation money disbursed to each group.
