Make new Friends

The parks and their programs give us all the chance to experience the outdoors and all that lives there.

Support Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks in New Leaf Community Market’s Envirotoken Program

Please show your support for Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks in the voting for New Leaf Community Market’s 2016-17 Environtokens donation recipients.

The program, started in 1993, gives customers who bring reusable grocery bags when shopping at New Leaf, a 10-cent Envirotoken to donate to the nonprofit of their choice. Six nonprofits are chosen to be Envirotokens recipients annually at each New Leaf location. Friends is on the ballot at stores:

Vote here for Westside Santa Cruz.
Vote here for Felton.
Vote here for Downtown Santa Cruz.
Vote here for Capitola.
Vote here for Boulder Creek.

Friends has been a beneficiary of the Envirotokens program in the past, including for 2015-16 in the Westside, Downtown and Capitola stores. We ask for your vote to help remain a part of this valuable community support program.

Voting is open now! It ends at 11:45 p.m. on May 31.
