Current Quarterly GiveBack Channel
At The Balanced Exchange, we're committed to creating lasting, positive change in our community. Each quarter we give part of our proceeds to a worthy organization dedicated to enacting system change. We know that environmental justice isn't a stand-alone issue. So when you're shopping with us, you are not only supporting small business, but participating in environmental, social and economic changes in Colorado as well.
For the third quarter of 2020, we are excited to support The Dahlia Campus for Health and Well-Being. This campus is the result of a strong partnership between the Mental Health Center of Denver and the Northeast Park Hill community, understanding that those in the community are the ones who know best how to improve their health and well-being.
Benefits of Shopping with
Zero Waste Goals:
Buy Just What
Support Local Economy
We are redefining "bulk shopping" from buying excess to getting just the amount you need.
Refills allow us to refuse packaging at the point of purchase, setting us free of the disposal guessing game between what can be recycled, composted or tossed in landfill.
Supporting local economy means reduced transportation costs and a lower carbon footprint. Put money into your community, not a large corporation's pocket.
