Entering our 5th Year of Enviro Tokens!

Envirotokens logo with the following text: For every reusable bag you use, we'll give you five cents off or an enviro token to to donate to a local organization. Just drop your token in the slot for the organization you want to support and we'll pass the funds along.

For every reusable bag you use at checkout, you'll receive either five cents off your bill or an Enviro Token to donate those five cents to a local organization! 

Honest Weight's Enviro Tokens program started in September of 2015. Prior to that, Honest Weight was reimbursing shoppers a nickel for each reusable bag they use to shop the Co-op, incentivizing reuse and reducing waste. With the Enviro Tokens program, shoppers have the choice to donate that nickel to a charity of their choosing. The goal is to turn a simple green living practice into a chance to give back – everybody wins!

Each quarter we select five charitable organizations. To date, we've been able to donate more than $46,488.20 to 95 local non-profit organizations and our shoppers have reused over 929,764 bags (as of June 30th, 2020).

So remember to bring your reused or reusable bags next time you shop at Honest Weight! When you checking out, opt for the Enviro Token wooden nickel instead of the five cent refund. Place your nickel in the box of your choosing on your way out the door and watch the tally raise from week to week as our collectivized nickels make a huge impact on our community!

This quarter, July 1st-September 30th, 2020, our EnviroTokens is dedicated to non-profits working to fight racial injustice in our community. As we have adapted to a touchless exchange, the funds will be split equally between the five organizations at the end of each week.

Capital Area Against Mass Incarceration (CAAMI) seeks to challenge and dismantle mass incarceration and the systems of oppression that sustain it. We do this through coordinated actions and by opening the dialogue about mass incarceration and the criminal injustice system in a way that is empowering to all individuals and communities affected by them. CAAMI defines “mass incarceration” as both the excessive quantity of people caught in the criminal justice system, and the racially discriminatory and cruel quality of the current punitive model of social control. Police brutality, racially disparate sentencing, and post-prison discrimination function as a self-reinforcing system that damages communities. We are all impacted by mass incarceration. It does not affect only those in prison and those who have a loved one in prison. It devastates all our communities and diminishes quality of life and basic human rights for everyone. However, not all communities are affected equally. Communities of color, the poor, the LGBT community, and those with disabilities suffer disproportionately at all stages of the system.

The process of dismantling mass incarceration can only begin by bringing passionate people together to share ideas, spread awareness, and take action. CAAMI seeks to do just that while building a strong and proactive local movement.

Social Justice Center Through the Social Justice Center we are working for a world in which international conflicts are settled without war, and in which people treat each other with love, dignity and justice. We are striving to end the threat of nuclear annihilation by promoting nuclear disarmament. We are working to stop harmful U.S. military and economic intervention in the affairs of other countries. We oppose the violation of human rights. We stand for economic and environmental justice and are fighting for the rights of all people to adequate housing, employment, health care, food and other needs. We believe in the equal worth of all persons and are struggling against discrimination on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, physical challenge (disability), age and religion. In our coming together, we strive to work in co-operative ways consistent with these beliefs and values. The center helps us work for progressive social change through mutual support and collective action.

A Village, Inc. At this time we at AVillage Inc., want to establish solidarity with all of those who are committed to anti-racism, equity, and prioritizing marginalized voices and the needs of vulnerable people. 

AVillage…, Inc. welcomes all neighbors and community members, groups, organizations, officials to join us in crafting and delivering a collective statement to combat racism, and systemic oppression with outlined demands, action steps and milestones to track progress. This statement will serve as the barometer for behavior and accountability in our community as well as communicate our priorities and how we wish to engage. Our vision is a just community where empowered people have equitable access to opportunities and resources. We identify inequities and confront their root causes by galvanizing the community and leveraging resources to create transformational change.  

We prioritize marginalized voices.
We fight systemic racism and oppression.
We deliver strategic solutions.
We are stronger together.

Center for Law & Justice The Center for Law and Justice was founded by Dr. Alice Green in 1985. For the past 30 plus years, the Center has been serving low-income and disadvantaged communities in the Capital Region through services, education and advocacy.

The Center for Law and Justice envisions a peaceful, just, and compassionate community that provides each resident with equal access to the goods, services and opportunities of that community. It also seeks the fair and just treatment of all people throughout the civil and criminal justice systems, and works to reduce reliance upon incarceration.

Youth FX Youth FX primarily works with young people of color who reside in the South End, Arbor Hill and West Hill neighborhoods of Albany, NY, areas that have been historically under served and in need of meaningful opportunities for training and engagement in new digital media technology. The skills they learn not only enable them to be more creative and express their ideas, but they are also valuable skills that are in high demand in today’s technology based world.  Youth FX participants engage in their communities by creating documentary and short fiction films that reflect their understanding and vision of the world around them as well as their imagined futures.
