Bags That Give Back: Environmental Learning Center Selected to Benefit in Winn-Dixie  Reusable Bag Program Designed to Give Back in Local Communities

Vero Beach, FL – Reduce single-use plastic in the environment and give back to a local non-profit, all while running routine weekly errands at the local Winn-Dixie. The Environmental Learning Center (ELC) has been selected by local Winn-Dixie store leadership as the benefiting non-profit in the Community Bag Program for the month of May! 

The Winn-Dixie Community Bag Program is an easy way for shoppers to give back to the local community and the environment as part of the regular shopping routine. Every $2.50 reusable Community Bag sends a $1 donation to a non-profit local to the Winn-Dixie in which it was purchased. 

As part of this ongoing program, every month at every Winn-Dixie location a different local non-profit is selected to benefit from the sale of the reusable Community Bag. The ELC was selected as the May beneficiary by local store leadership at the Winn-Dixie store located at 995 Sebastian Boulevard, Sebastian FL.  The ELC will receive a $1 donation for every $2.50 reusable Community Bag purchased at this location in May.  

“It’s more important than ever to help reduce single-use plastic in the environment,” said Barbara Schlitt Ford, Executive Director of the Environmental Learning Center. “Non-profits at the local level, like us, are in need of community support. This program offers the perfect solution to multiple issues of the world today. We hope you’ll support us in May by purchasing one – or two! – Community Bags at our local Winn-Dixie.” 

The Environmental Learning Center is a non-profit based in Vero Beach, FL. Founded in 1988, the ELC works to educate, inspire, and empower all people to be active stewards of the environment and their own well-being.
