Why The Frugal Diva loves Sprouts!
Healthy grocery store committed to inspiring customers to eat healthier and live a better life
This April, Sprouts Farmers Market is helping consumers celebrate Earth Month with sales on organic products, herbal supplements and earth-friendly cleaning products to inspire consumers to eat healthier and live better lives. April is also Autism Awareness Month, and Sprouts invites customers to round up their purchases for one week with all donations going to Autism Speaks to support local communities. A long-time supporter of autism charities, Sprouts has raised over $5 million dollars in the past five years.
Let Sprouts make your April earth-friendly and green.
Earth Month is a perfect time for consumers seeking a healthy lifestyle to shop for food and household products that are free of toxic pesticides and chemicals. Organic foods are grown without synthetic pesticides and fertilizers that can deplete the soil of valuable nutrients and increase environmental degradation. A recent study found that organic agriculture had lower pesticides and higher levels of antioxidants than conventional agriculture.
“Parents know that providing foods that are grown without chemicals and using cleaning products that are toxin free helps to provide a healthy diet and safe home for their families,” said Janet Little, Sprouts’ nutritionist. “This April, Sprouts offers customers easy ways to go green, eat better and save money with incredible savings on products from organic foods made without GMOs to non-toxic cleaning products.”
Organic Sale – April 15 – 22: Stock up and dig into amazing savings on hundreds of organic items on sale throughout the store. From organic meat, dairy, produce, coffee, vitamins, body care and earth-friendly cleaning products – Sprouts offers great variety and great prices.
Clean Sweeps – April 1 – 22: Customers can win a high-efficiency washer, dryer and a $1,000 Lowe’s gift card. Additionally, 10 runners-up will receive a laundry basket filled to the brim with cleaning products from Seventh Generation to promote a non-toxic lifestyle. Enter to win in-store or at sprouts.com/cleansweeps.
Botanical Bliss – April 1 – 30: For the entire month of April, Sprouts will offer an interactive educational experience in the vitamin department designed to help consumers better understand herbs and their functionality. What better way to thank Mother Nature than to find your botanical bliss!
April is Autism Awareness Month.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention the prevalence of autism had risen to 1 in every 68 births in the United States – nearly twice as great as the 2004 rate of 1 in 125 – and almost 1 in 54 boys. In honor of Autism awareness month, Sprouts is providing an easy way for consumers to help support Autism Speaks.
Round Up – April 22 – April 29: Customers can simply ask to have their purchases rounded up to the nearest dollar or make a $1, $5 or $10 donation in support of Autism Awareness Month. Customers can also donated online sprouts.com/autism-awareness. One-hundred percent of the funds raised are donated to local organizations that provide services to the Autism community through a grant program with Autism Speaks.
