On Aug 25th, 2023, Tofino Consumers Co-op entered into agreement with Tribal Parks Allies to add a additional 1% Ecological fee on non-membership transactions at our Food Store location only.
Tribal Parks Allies have partnered with local businesses to generate revenue that mitigates the social and ecological costs associated with tourism, marine pollution and legacy pollution. More information about their programs and services can be found here https://tribalparks.com.
Tofino Co-op has taken the Iisaak Pledge to follow the lead of the Tla-O-Qui-Aht Guardians to respect and honour the unceded lands which we all call home. Our donations will help to protect old-growth forests, restore salmon habitats, revitalize First Nation language and culture and build a Community Longhouse. All businesses which display the Tribal Parks Allies Logo are contributing a 1% Ecosystem Service Fee to support these goals.
We are excited about the opportunity to give back to the West Coast Community in a meaningful way that will leave a legacy of clean water, forests and a home for living creatures for years to come.
