In celebration of Earth Month, the Whole Foods Market Louisiana stores are hosting a t-shirt recycling drive through April 30 for The African InKNITiative, a non-profit organization that benefits Ugandan women in refugee camps.

The African InKNITiative repurposes t-shirts into scarves, which were featured in the Whole Foods Market stores during the 2011 holidays. 

In addition, the stores will collect new and gently used sports equipment for the Son of Saint Foundation’s REPLAY program at the Arabella and Veterans locations and Greater Baton Rouge Area Sports Foundation at the Baton Rouge store. The desired equipment includes:
