Green for the Earth and Your Wallet at Harris Teeter
Visit your neighborhood food market in April to take advantage of variety of Earth Day promotions

Charlotte, NC – Harris Teeter is committed to incorporating sustainable practices into its day to day business operations and, in celebration of Earth Day, is incentivizing shoppers to also go green all month long.  The company has partnered with specific vendors to offer promotions that will reward them for their green decisions and is also giving away a FREE reusable bag to new e-VIC members.

That’s right, if a shopper joins e-VIC, a member-only service through which Harris Teeter helps them save more while being green, they will be targeted to receive a FREE Harris Teeter green reusable bag.  Shoppers must sign-up online for e-VIC on Earth Day, Friday, April 22, 2011 to receive their FREE green reusable bag.  The bag will be redeemable during a subsequent transaction from April 26– May 3, 2011.  Once shoppers sign-up for e-VIC, they will start to receive the company’s weekly circular through email and have the option to take advantage of paperless, e-VIC Coupon offers.

From April 6 through May 3, DANNON® is making it easy for Harris Teeter shoppers to earn money and promote a healthy environment.   For every one dollar a Very Important Customer (VIC) card customer spends on any combination of DANNON® yogurt products, they will earn one point. When a shopper earns 20 points, the shopper will receive $3 off their next grocery bill, automatically targeted to their VIC card.  Also, for every $1,000 worth of DANNON® products purchased at Harris Teeter stores, DANNON® will plant a tree in the community, up to 1,200 trees.  For more information, click here.

Good Cook® also developed a green plan for shoppers’ old metal bakeware.  Starting April 13 for a period of four weeks at participating Harris Teeter locations, shoppers who recycle their old baking pan at Harris Teeter will receive discounts on a new Good Cook® baking pan.  Look for the Good Cook® kiosk in your Harris Teeter for more information.

Lastly, Seventh Generation realizes the benefits of using reusable bags and has also partnered with Harris Teeter to offer the company’s VIC card customers a free reusable bag when they purchase $5 or more in participating Seventh Generation products April 20 – April 26.  Using reusable bags can replace over six plastic bags every shopping trip; the reusable bag will be targeted to a shopper’s VIC card and can be redeemed during a subsequent transaction April 20 – May 3, 2011.   

Harris Teeter is proud to celebrate Earth Day all month long and will continue to offer its shoppers a wide variety of high quality, sustainable products at competitive prices.  The company will also continue to find innovative ways to reduce waste in its stores to promote a healthier environment.
