Zero waster money saver: Replace Single use 

A family of four, who each use two single-use water bottles per day (based on $0.50 per 16oz bottle) can save $1,456.00 per year by using reusable water bottles; and for a specialty drink ($1.50 per 16oz bottle) will save $4,380.00 by refilling your own bottle, thermos or cup. And it really helps to have a clean earth… 

ps: We have some more free stainless steel water bottle at church, please ask for one) 

Amazon Smile Program 

Similar to Benevity, Amazon supports local and national charity organizations when their customers shop with them. So we have recently signed up for Amazon smile, which will give a small percentage to our church when someone uses Amazon smile to make any purchases. 

What is Smile Amazon? 

Amazon Smile was created by Amazon as a way for those who shop Amazon to give to their favorite charity. Every time someone enrolled in Amazon Smile shops 0.5% goes to the charity of their choice. Amazon Smile is the same Amazon you know and love – Same products, same prices, same service. 

How to use Smile Amazon? 

When you are going to make a purchase in, instead of using, please use or goto and search for “amazon smile” (without quotes).
