Celebrate Earth Day with Sale at Sugar Beet Food Co-op




The Sugar Beet Food Co-op is holding a customer appreciation weekend April 22 and 23 to celebrate Earth Day in Oak Park. Members can receive a 10 percent discount and nonmembers 5 percent off all non-sale items. Shoppers can meet the farmers working to sustainably grow healthy foods, write their “New Earth Year’s Resolution” and post it on the Earth inspiration board or check out a book from the Oak Park Public Library to learn more about composting and reducing their footprint. Sugar Beet will be donating 5 percent of the day’s sales to an organization or program chosen by the community.

        Sugar Beet, the first and only west suburban food co-op, was born in 2015 out of the work of community members, and strives to give back to the community on a daily basis. The idea of a business and its community working interdependently together has been documented as far back as 1769. The current food co-op culture continues to support this ethos, as well as democratic control, education and information sharing for the community and concern for our environment and world.

Location: 812 W. Madison, Oak Park. For more information, call 708-948-7656 or visit SugarBeet.coop. See ad on page 45.

All Plastics Are Not Created Equal for Recycling

When it comes to recycling, we all want to do our part, but plastics can be confusing.
