Local company Fair Anita works with artisans worldwide to create unique and affordable jewelry and facemasks that support women around the world. 100% of their handmade facemask sales are donated to organizations that support individuals who have been impacted by the pandemic. Since the pandemic began in March 2020, TCCP has sold over 3,600 masks and in turn, donated almost $11,000 to organizations that need it most
In November of 2019, Minneapolis’ City Council approved a 5¢ bag fee for paper and plastic bags at retail stores. When the bag fee was enacted, we saw approximately a 50% reduction in paper bag use. This initiative was put on hold when the pandemic began but was reinstated in our stores on Oct. 1. Customers are now charged a nickel for handled bags given out at our checkout lanes. Shoppers who use SNAP/EBT or WIC are exempt from the fee.
