The Patch the Planet program reflects Lakewinds’ commitment to the environment.  We reward shoppers who reuse cloth, paper or plastic bags for their groceries.  When a bag is reused, customers receive a Green Patch valued at 5 cents.  This can be applied to a future grocery purchase OR dropped into the collection box at the register.  Each quarter, the Patches are collected and tallied, and a check is issued to an environmental organization pre-selected by Lakewinds.  This program raises an average of $6,000 per year.

Sustainable and environmental organizations that would like to be considered for this program can apply via email to marketing@lakewinds.com.  Applications will be collected and reviewed quarterly, and recipient organizations will be notified if they are selected.

Green Patches collected April – June 2018 will be donated to:
