Vote Today for Friends of the Sea Otter to Participate in New Leaf Community Market’s Envirotoken Program
Every time you reuse a bag at New Leaf Community Markets, you get 10¢ to give to a local, non-profit group working for the environment. In 1993 New Leaf started the Envirotoken program to conserve resources by encouraging recycling, as well as to support local non-profits working to protect the environment. Every May New Leaf Community Markets publish a ballot and customers and residents in the surrounding communities vote for their top six candidates.
In 2013, Friends of the Sea Otter was voted in to participate in the envirotoken program for the first time, which ends up bringing in between $9,000-$10,000 to Friends of the Sea Otter to help our mission of protecting and recovering sea otters and their habitat.
Now, in 2015, throughout the month of May, if you reside in Santa Cruz or Monterey Counties or the greater Bay Area including San Francisco, San Jose, Half Moon Bay, and other neighboring communities in the bay area (100 mile radius of those areas), please VOTE for us.
Friends of the Sea Otter is on the ballots for the following stores. Please vote on the ballots for each of the stores:
- Santa Cruz Downtown
- Santa Cruz Westside
- Boulder Creek
- Half Moon Bay
