Giving Back

Earth Day Celebration

Every year on Earth Day, we like to give back to local organizations that help protect our scenic South Shore community. This year, if you shop with us on Earth Day - Wednesday, April 22 -  and use reusable bags, the Fruit Center will donate $2 per customer to one of two local organizations

Our Hingham store will be supporting The Trustees of Reservations and World's End in Hingham. The Trustees of Reservations preserve, for public use and enjoyment, properties of exceptional scenic, historic and ecological value in Massachusetts, including Hingham's World's End. 

Our Milton store will be supporting Friends of the Blue Hills. Founded in 1979, Friends of the Blue Hills helps maintain the Reservation's 125 miles of trails, control invasive plants that threaten endangered species and advocate for policies that protect the park.

Don't have reusable bags? We've got three varieties available for purchase: our popular "Fold-a-tote" bags (they fold into a neat square and snap together!) are $3.00, our handy insulated bags are $3.99 and our durable canvas bags are $5.99.
