New reusable grocery bags available
FEED Projects, a socially minded business with hopes of feeding the world, and Whole Foods Market, the leading natural and organic foods supermarket, have announced that new FEED 100 reusable shopping bags will be available exclusively at Whole Foods Market stores throughout the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. Each bag purchased for $29.99 will help provide 100 nutritious meals to hungry school age children in Rwanda through the United Nation World Food Program’s (WFP) School Feeding Program.
When a Whole Foods Market customer buys a FEED 100 bag, $10 will be donated to the WFP and the remainder will cover costs of the bag and oversight of the program by the FEED foundation. Whole Foods Market is not making a profit by offering the bags to its shoppers.
Designed solely for Whole Foods Market by former fashion model Lauren Bush, co-founder and CEO of FEED Projects, the FEED 100 reusable bag is made of organic cotton and natural burlap and is produced with a commitment to ensuring fair treatment of workers, livable wages, paid overtime and safe and clean working environments.
It is a lightweight, fresh white tote that collapses easily into its base, which is a zippered rectangular burlap pouch emblazoned with the FEED logo and the number 100.
The FEED 100 reusable shopping bags can be found at all Whole Foods Market stores, including the location at 17991 NE Redmond Way. For more details, visit www.feedprojects.org or www.wholefoodsmarket.com.
