Minot businesses rewarding people on Earth Day

Businesses around the Magic City are doing their part to help folks get involved on Earth Day.

Whether it's bringing your own kombucha container to Main Street Books or taking your cans to Kalix, folks around Minot were rewarded just for celebrating Earth Day.

“On Earth Day, yes. It's packed. I got out here fifty minutes early and I was way out at the highway,” said Kalix patron Brad Perkins.

The wait was long, but Perkins said it was worth it, and not just for double tokens.

“There are a lot of people that are recycling and this is a good cause,” he said.

One Kalix regular said it was great to see that he is not alone in his efforts.

“Every time we bring it here, I feel we're making a little bit of an impact. To see everybody out there today joining us is just great,” said Taproom owner Jon Lakoduk.

For someone who owns a bar, Lakoduk said he wanted to take advantage of premium token prices for his stockpile of aluminum cans.

Earth Day only comes around once a year, but that doesn't stop Lakoduk from thinking about sustainability every day.

“Let’s not just think of Earth Day as one day a year. Let's keep it in the back of our minds throughout the year and try and recycle as much as we can and keep that stuff out of the landfill,” he said.

Main Street Books offered discounts to those who brought a reusable container for their kombucha to cut down on waste.

Giving people an extra reason to protect our planet.

Kalix will have their double-token offer going through April 26th.
