Buffalo Grove area schools stand to benefit when shoppers bring reusable bags to Sunset Foods in Long Grove.
Through the store’s new Nickels for Nature program, the grocery store will donate 5 cents for each shopping bag their customers provide. The money will be shared among schools in District 96, District 102 and District 103.
“Sunset has been offering reusable bags for at least 20 years,” said John Cortesi, president and CEO of Sunset Foods. “It reminds people, especially children, about the importance of recycling which benefits the entire community.”
“Our focus the first year we opened our Long Grove store was to partner with the high schools. We are now well established with them through our participation in a variety of charity events and fundraisers,” Thaddeus Tazioli, vice president of marketing, said. “We realize families have many grocery store choices. We hope to distinguish our stores by giving back to local communities and providing great service.”
Nickels for Nature is also offered at Sunset Foods’ Lake Forest location.
