All of us at CET (formerly the Center for EcoTechnology) wish to thank the thousands of generous River Valley Co-op shoppers who collectively donated $10,000 in small change in the month of April. CET is putting these funds to work to mitigate over 80 tons of CO2 emissions by helping homes and businesses reduce waste, improve energy efficiency, and transition off fossil fuel. Thank you for this important help!

For nearly 50 years we’ve been on a mission to innovate, implement, and scale the environmental solutions that communities need to thrive. River Valley Co-op is one of the thousands of businesses across New England that we’ve already helped. Over the years, CET helped River Valley Co-op to minimize construction waste from the Easthampton location, eliminate plastic from produce and bulk departments, adopt compostable-ware, and right-size their waste services.

With your donations, we’re able to help many others. We love River Valley Co-op for choosing CET in April for “Change for Change” in honor of Earth Day. Collectively, we are helping people and the planet to thrive!

Development director, CET, Northampton
