Thank you to everyone who shopped local and participated in our spring fundraiser for a brighter future together with local businesses Soaps by Nature and Cotter Cares Baking whose fundraisers for BG ended May 31st.
100% of funds raised will encourage youth, amplify local voices, and provide tools and resources for Burlington community members and organizations to Green Up, Clean Up and Make the Switch to living more softly on Earth.
Soaps by Nature generously added their own personal donation to the 20% of proceeds from sales of their all-natural, locally handcrafted, beautiful soaps, boosting their total contribution to $345.20.
Cotter Cares Baking donated $1 to BG for every half dozen products purchased during the fundraiser, adding up to $205. Thanks so much! Check out their yummy, local treats.
Thank you, Soaps by Nature, for your kind words: “…as one of the founding members I know first hand that every “penny”, okay nickel, goes directly towards local greening projects such as running the huge City wide annual Clean Up with thousands of volunteers, organizing GreenUp events to remove invasive species & plant native trees, empowering citizens/groups to speak up for the environment, educating thousands of students & youth to act sustainably for their future, etc. For BurlingtonGreen Every Day is Earth Day so if you can please make a donation too.”
