Shop 4% Friday on July 26th to Support The Million Waves Project

On the 4th Friday of every month, you shop and, together, we give! Skagit Valley Food Co-op’s 4% Friday Community Shopping Day recipients receive 4% of the day’s sales at the Co-op, so the more you put in your cart, the more you give back! On Friday, July 26th, 4% of sales will be donated to The Million Waves Project.

Every year, 28-billion pounds of plastic ends up in our ocean AND Approximately 40 million people in the developing world are in need of prosthetic limbs yet only five percent have any prosthetic options. The Million Waves Project brings together these two unacceptable global situations and offers a practical and sustainable solution. They take recycled plastic cleaned from the ocean and turn it into 3D printable material – prosthetic limbs for people in need.

How will your shopping trip help The Million Waves Project?

4% Friday funds will be used to purchase 3D printers that will more than double the output/amount of limbs that Million Waves can print.
