Share When You Shop
Here at Nearby Nature we generally have a “less is more” approach when it comes to shopping. We love thrift stores, sharing resources, and getting the most out of everything we already possess. However, even the most conservative consumer does need to buy new things from time to time. So how can you share when you shop? Read on to learn about four ways you can support Nearby Nature without spending a dime beyond what you already spend every day. Your purchases can help power our programs and allow us to serve 7,000+ kids, their teachers, and their families every year!
