Did you know that every time you use your reusable container, we donate 5 cents to our non-profit community partner?

For the past six months we have partnered with Empower Art, a non-profit organization whose mission is to commit to facilitate healing and empowerment for adolescent survivors of family and sexual violence through various forms of creative expression.

From September 8th – September 15th we’re asking our customers and online community to help us decide our next non-profit partner.  Starting October 1st, in.gredients will donate 5 cents per reusable container you fill at the store.

Please take the time to read about these four amazing local non-profit organizations, and then take the poll to help us decide who our next partner will be. Thank you!
