New Seasons Market Bag it Forward Donation Program | New Seasons Market

Bag It Forward

Bag-It_forward

With our Bag It Forward Program, by bringing in your reusable shopping bag, you can donate your 5 cent reusable shopping bag refund to one of three nonprofits in your New Seasons Market location’s neighborhood. (Plus, for bringing in your reusable shopping bag, you’ll earn 10 bonus Neighbor Rewards points, too!).

Our nonprofit beneficiaries work to end hunger, support K-12 schools and protect our environment, and each store partners with one local nonprofit from each category for the Bag It Forward program.

Thanks to our generous customers, $536,842.40 has been donated to Bag it Forward partners since the beginning of the program in 2016! That equals 10.7 Million bag credits that were donated to local nonprofits in less than 4 years.

In 2019, this program generated $179,402.05 in donations. That’s a 36.4% increase over 2018! With the new state-required paper bag fee, we hope to donate even more this year. Helping the environment and local community is in the bag for 2020!

Want to apply to be a Bag It Forward partner? Please fill out this form and email it to outreach@newseasonsmarket.com.

Note: In an effort to encourage the use of reusable shopping bags, Oregon will require retailers to charge a 5 cent bag fee for each paper bag used at the register. This law goes into effect January 1, 2020 so be sure to bring in those reusable shopping bags! Still need a paper bag? No problem! Your 5 cents will go to fund sustainability initiatives!
