Bag Nickel Program
IYNF gives a nickel back to each customer for every full-sized grocery
bag that the person reuses, rather than getting a new bag from us.
Customers may keep or donate their nickels. Every three months we
choose a different organization to receive customers’ bag nickels. We
have donated to the following organizations during the last year:
- Blue Ridge Area Food Bank
- Habitat for Humanity-Charlottesville
- SARA (Sexual Assault Resource Agency
- The Haven at First & Market
IYNF donated over $1000 in 2011 through our bag nickel program.
Ongoing food donations to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank
Integral Yoga has a receptacle set up in the store for customers to
make food donations throughout the year. We also donate a significant
proportion of items that we are no longer able to sell-such as items that
go out of date. In 2011 we donated over 900 lbs of food.
