If there’s one thing that we’re truly passionate about, it’s food. If there’s another, it’s our community and how important the element of sustainability is to its current and future members.

Working to make Richmond one of the most eco-friendly cities in the world might be far-fetched, but it’s a goal we’re aiming to achieve.  This city is lucky to have a great bus system, local bike and scooter shops, and hundreds of miles of sidewalks. We would like to reward those who choose these available methods.

In an effort to continually help and encourage alternative means of transportation in this city, we reward those individuals that arrive to our store using environmentally friendly methods. We call it our Envirocredit, and it’s pretty simple:

If you get to our store by walking, riding a bike, taking the bus, skateboarding, rollerblading, skipping, running, or even walking on your hands, we’ll take 25-cents off your purchase. It’s as simple as that.

When you check out, just mention to your cashier how you got to our store. If it fits the Envirocredit description, we’ll take 25-cents off your entire bill.
