New Seasons Market promotes sustainable agriculture in Earth Month


April 04, 2024 PORTLAND, Ore.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In observance of Earth Month, New Seasons Market BB #:176908 is launching “Building Better Soil for a Healthier Future,” an effort in which the neighborhood grocer and select vendor partners are collaborating to contribute to the vitality of the planet.

During the month of April, more than 25 brands found at New Seasons Market’s 21 stores will donate ONE PERCENT of their sales to benefit Zero Foodprint, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping farmers and ranchers implement regenerative agricultural practices.

In collaboration, New Seasons Market will also contribute one percent of its Partner Brand private label product sales.

“As a steward of sustainability, we are acutely aware that our decisions today shape the world we pass on to future generations. ‘Building Better Soil for a Healthier Future’ is more than a campaign; it is a manifestation of New Seasons Market’s core belief that every small action contributes to a larger, positive impact on the environment,” said New Seasons Market CEO Nancy Lebold.

“Together, with our valued partners, we are proud to support Zero Foodprint’s regenerative agriculture initiatives, making a tangible difference in the fight against climate change while also elevating the quality and sustainability of the food we bring to our customers’ tables.”

The Earth Month program highlights a direct approach to funding transformative farming and ranching practices, one that focuses on rebuilding the health of our soil, rejuvenating ecosystems, and recreating a more balanced agricultural landscape. By adopting practices that make the land healthier and give back to nature, farmers are fostering a truly positive and sustainable agricultural future. It perfectly embodies New Seasons Market’s ongoing commitment to sustainability and environmental restoration.

“Zero Foodprint is excited to partner with New Seasons Market and the dozens of brands that are going above and beyond by actively teaming up with farms and ranches to advance regenerative agriculture,” said Anthony Myint, Executive Director of Zero Foodprint.

“Hopefully, this marks a turning point in the good food movement, where consumers and businesses begin collaborating to implement the next practice on the next acre. We’re proud to be working with New Seasons Market on creating an optimistic new normal in which we can all do our part to restore the climate while growing better food!”

New Seasons Market invites customers to join in this cause by shopping for their favorite products from these select brands throughout April. Together, we can make an enduring impact, nurturing the soil that nourishes us and paving the way for a flourishing future. For more information about the Earth Month program, please visit:
