Use your Bean!

September 1, 2018 @ 7:00 am - September 30, 2018 @ 9:00 pm

During the month of September, the Friends of Brooks Memorial Library will be among three designated organizations that will benefit from the Brattleboro Food Co-op’s Bag-A-Bean program.

How It Works
Whenever customers bring in their own grocery bag, bulk-food container, or travel mug, the Co-op thanks them with a 5¢ credit or a bean that they can drop it into one of three containers benefiting local non-profits.

Each month the Co-op selects three non-profits on a rotating basis. For every pound of beans placed in a container, over $14 is donated to that container’s organization. Donations can range from $100 to $500!

The Bag-A-Bean program works to engage shoppers in reducing waste by rewarding them with the opportunity to donate their savings to a local non-profit. Both the environment and the non-profits benefit!

The Friends of Brooks Memorial Library are grateful to the Co-op for this opportunity to enhance the library programs that the Friends provide to the community at large.
