Volunteering at Whole Foods

Green Sangha was honored to be the recipient of Oakland Whole Foods Market’s 5% Community Giving Day on Thursday, June 25. Our volunteers had a great time staffing our table, educating the public and ourselves about plastics in the environment, and encouraging shoppers to bring their own containers and fill up from the store’s many bulk bins for a truly Zero-Waste shopping experience. We distributed information, including our flyer Tips For Waste-Free Shopping (PDF) and gave out free rolls of recycled toilet paper and CFL light bulbs.
