Natural Grocers Honors the Earth with Fourth Annual Ladybug Love Campaign

The campaign celebrates insects and the crucial role that they play in food supply stability and regenerative farming practices.

Natural Grocers is celebrating Earth Day 2021 with its fourth annual Ladybug Love campaign throughout the month of April. The campaign celebrates insects and the crucial role that they play in food supply stability, and regenerative farming practices that use ladybugs and other beneficial insects instead of harmful synthetic pesticides to control pests.

Through the Ladybug Love initiative, the brand will offer special programming including the Beyond Pesticides fundraising program, discounts on groceries and eco-friendly products, sweepstakes, and much more:

Ladybug Love Pledge: Natural Grocers invites its communities to take or renew the pledge—to refrain from using lawn and garden chemicals that harm ladybugs and other beneficial insects, and to support 100% organic produce. Customers can sign the pledge by visiting: www.NaturalGrocers.com/ladybuglove

–  Natural Grocers will donate $1.00 to Beyond Pesticides for every Ladybug Love pledge signed, whether it’s a first-time signer or a renewed pledge[i], from April 1 – 30.

–  {N}power members who make or renew their pledge from April 1 – 15, will also receive $1 off their purchase on Earth Day, April 22.

A drawing among all entries with the correct number of ladybugs will determine the winner.

Natural Grocers long-term partnership with Beyond Pesticides, which resulted in the launch of the “Ladybug Love Your Neighborhoods” campaign, raises community awareness and directly contributes to local parks, schools, and businesses converting their outdoor spaces to pesticide-free zones. Beyond Pesticides is a 501(c)3 nonprofit advocacy and grassroots organization that aims to protect public health and the environment by leading the transition to a world free of toxic pesticides.

Along with local organizations, Natural Grocers fundraising efforts thus far have helped the following parks and recreational areas to convert exclusively to organic practices and to eliminate the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers: Roosevelt Park in Longmont, CO, Chief Garry Park in Spokane, WA, Reid Park and Silverlake Fields in Tucson, AZ, Tempe Sports Complex in Tempe, AZ, Irwin Park in Eugene, OR, and Island Park in Springfield, OR.

Natural Grocers is an organic grocery store that offers many initiatives to support the community and empower people to live better lives. Recently, Green Living publisher, Dorie Morales, went on an eco-product tour of the beloved store. Watch the full video, below.
