Second Chance Toys Welcomes Erewhon Market to its Toy Recirculation Network


Right in time for the new year, Second Chance Toys is excited to announce that Erewhon Market has joined our toy recirculation network as a Valued Supporter.                                                                                                                                                                                                             

Erewhon Market is a Certified Organic Retailer and Certified B Corp with 10 locations in the Los Angeles area. According to their website, Erewhon believes “[that] nutrition is the key to a radiant lifestyle. Through [their] markets, [they] endeavor to provide exceptional organic products that inspire good decision-making and healthier communities.” For SCT, a nonprofit organization striving to change how families make household decisions, what toys to buy, when and where to toss them, Erewhon’s mission couldn’t resonate more! 

We are extremely thankful to Erewhon for joining us by way of an incredible Round UP initiative for the Season of Giving. Second Chance Toys was selected to be the recipient and featured nonprofit organization to which guests could donate funds by rounding up their totals at the register. The Round UP opportunity lasted for a weeklong period, not only bringing in donations, but also helping to gain exposure for the SCT waste-need circular economy in Southern California. 

Erewhon’s entire team took part in this initiative, resulting in $12,091 raised for Second Chance Toys. This impact equals: 

  • 20,000 toys diverted from landfills and rehomed to organizations serving kids in need.

  • 40,000 children positively impacted with each round of shared play.

  • 240 sets of cleaning and packing materials for volunteer teams to rehab toys before redistribution.

It is an honor to work together with a supporter with whom we share the same values; Healthy, compassionate families and communities, eco-conscious packaging and business, and most importantly, collaborating with others to be a force of good.

We are so excited to continue on with more initiatives and we thank Erewhon for the beginning of a wonderful journey of sustainability together!
