Tunie’s Makes Cents

Making a Difference Together

As a locally owned business, Tunie’s believes strongly in giving back to the local South Florida Community. The “Tunie’s Makes Cents” program enables Tunie’s and their customers to work together to support many important and deserving causes in our area at no cost to our customers. Tunie’s has created an easy program for you to help give back to causes and organizations that mean the most to you and also promote sustainability.

Tunies-Makes-CentsHere’s how it works:

  • Bring your reusable shopping tote into any Tunie’s location
  • For each reusable shopping bag used during your visit, Tunie’s will gives a token with a value .05 cents
  • At the front of each store you’ll find a display featuring the four charities Tunie’s is currently supporting
  • Simply choose the cause that most resonates with you and drop your token in the appropriate box
  • At the end of each quarter, Tunie’s will donate the value of all tokens received to that particular cause

Don’t have a bag? Ours are made from recycled plastic and cost just a $1, with 100% of those proceeds also donated to community causes.  

Shop Local, support sustainability and your community.
 Let’s make a difference together.
