Did you know that every time you bring your reusable container to shop with us, we donate 5 cents to our non-profit community partner?

For the past six months we have partnered with SafePlace, a non-profit organization whose mission is to end sexual and domestic violence through safety, healing, prevention, and social change. Our collective efforts have thus far raised over $300 to help this life-changing organization.

This week (March 17th-24th) we’re asking our customers and online community to help us decide our next non-profit partner.  Starting April 1st, in.gredients will donate 5 cents per “BYOC” to the chosen non-profit partner.

Please take the time to read about these four amazing local non-profit organizations. Then, take the poll to help us decide who we’ll partner with next.  Thank you!

Attendance Records is dedicated to bringing creativity back into schools by connecting teachers and students with local writers, artists, and musicians. By providing students with the opportunity to design, write, and produce their own album, students will build confidence in the skills that will result in discovering what makes them unique.

EcoRise Youth Innovations inspires a new generation of leaders to design a sustainable future for all. Our school-based program empowers youth to tackle real-world challenges in their schools and communities by teaching environmental literacy, social innovation, and hands-on design skills.

Providing emotional, physical, and informational support to empower women through their birth experience, GALS (Giving Austin Labor Support) has two main programs: 1) An on-call dispatch service that provides labor companions to any mother who is under-supported during her labor and birth, and 2) A partnership with Any Baby Can to serve low-income first-time moms through prenatal support, labor and birth support, and postpartum contact. 2014 will mark new partnerships with the Travis County Correctional Facility and the Pregnancy and Postpartum Health Alliance of Texas.

Kealing PTA shall work to promote the health and welfare of children and youth and shall seek to promote collaboration among parents, schools, and the community at-large.
