Earthbound Farm to Buy Grocery Carts Nationwide in April

America’s organic pioneer launches annual “Every Cart Counts” campaign to reward purchases of Earth-friendly products

SAN JUAN BAUTISTA, Calif. – (April 2, 2015) – In honor of Earth Month, Earthbound Farm, a pioneering organic food company and the nation’s leading grower of organic produce, is launching its third annual “Every Cart Counts” campaign. From April 1-30, Earthbound’s Cart Searchers will be on the lookout for shoppers across America with earth-friendly products in their grocery carts, and rewarding 1,000 people by paying their entire grocery bill.

“Earthbound’s Every Cart Counts campaign is unique in that it focuses on the small choices we make every time we enter a grocery store that have the potential to add up to real, positive change,” said Stacy Baas, Earth Month advocate for Earthbound Farm. “For instance, we calculated that if every person used a reusable shopping bag just once a week, we’d keep 16 billion bags out of landfills each year. It’s not a sacrifice, it doesn’t require getting your hands dirty and it has the potential for a big, tangible impact.”

Earthbound is inviting shoppers to take the online quiz, “How Green is Your Cart?” Participants will receive a free product coupon and can enter for chance to win a reusable grocery bag. Throughout the month, “Wisdom Tips” from Earthbound and its partners will be released to inspire easy Earth-friendly changes.

“From our very beginning as a backyard garden 30 years ago, Earthbound’s mission has always been to make the organic choice accessible to as many people as possible,” continued Baas. “Our organic produce is grown without toxic synthetic chemicals, GMOs and irradiation. In 2015 alone, we will keep 16.1 million pounds of synthetic fertilizers and toxic pesticides out of the environment.”

All Earthbound Farm produce is grown in accordance with the company’s industry-leading food safety and organic integrity programs packaged in sustainable packaging made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic. For more information, visit Our Story.
