One Dime at a Time
Our One Dime at a Time program provides an incentive to our customers to eliminate single-use plastic bags and develop stronger communities all at the same time. At the register, customers will have the option to receive a 10 cent per bag refund as cash back off their receipt or they can choose to donate it to that month’s selected charity organization. From Jan-Mar all donations will be benefitting the Whole Planet Foundation and their mission of poverty alleviation through microcredit in communities worldwide that supply Whole Foods Market stores with products, with a focus on the developing world. Through innovative assistance for entrepreneurship - including direct microcredit loans - we seek to unleash the energy and creativity of every human being we work with in order to create wealth and prosperity in emerging economies.
