Friday is Earth Day and Village Green Apothecary is proud to support Earth Day 2011: A Billion Acts of Green®. As an active member of our business community, we continuously strive to support sustainability and environmentally responsible efforts.
Simple acts of green that you and your family can do include:
- Turn off the lights when you leave a room
- Turn off the water faucet while your brush your teeth
- Eat locally grown food and support local farmers
- Start a veggie garden of your own
- Bring reusable bags grocery shopping (and for other shopping)
- Compost and recycle
- Walk and ride your bike instead of driving short distances
- Cut down or eliminate(!) your use of bottled water, and invest in a filter system
These are all simple ideas that anyone and everyone can do. To encourage you on your path to “greening” your lifestyle, Village Green is giving away adorable itty-bitty herb plants, FREE to take home and nurture, to the first 200 in-store customers who make a purchase on Earth Day, April 22. Come early to choose between rosemary, lemon thyme, and pineapple sage. (One plant per customer while supplies last.)
We are also starting Village Green’s Bag Refund Program. To kick off this initiative, we will take $1 off your purchase on Friday, April 22 if you bring in your own bag. Starting on April 23, we’ll give you a 10-cent credit when you bring your own bag.
Wishing everyone a happy Earth Day!
