Sustainable Washington D.C.

Located on the east bank of the Potomac, Washington D.C. has been the capital of the United States since 1790. Over the last two+ centuries, it has expanded into one of the most culturally-enriched cities in the U.S. 

If you're a history buff, you'll be able to enjoy the sights of the Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, and of course, the United States Capitol building. For those who are foodies - there are a number of businesses, restaurants, farms, and groceries where you can use your Atmos card and earn cashback!

8 Places to Earn Cashback on Healthy Eats and Groceries in Washington D.C.

Climate-wise Farms:

Climate-wise farming is an agricultural method that predominantly focuses on reducing carbon emissions and using green technology. We've been in love with climate-wise farming for a long time and have dedicated our time to bringing exposure to climate-wise farms. 

Purchasing produce from local farms such as these reduce carbon emissions due to the lack of necessity for refrigeration and shipping. Plus, local and organic food is always the tastiest!

Common Good City Farm

The Common Good City Farm is a place where community members can source fresh food, see sustainable urban agriculture in action, and gain exposure to concepts and skills to lead healthy, connected lives.

There are plenty of opportunities to get your hands dirty, ranging from classes and workshops to urban farming. 

Karl's Farm

Karl's Farm started in 2002 after Paula and Karl decided to purchase an abandoned, overgrown farm. Two years later, they received their first CSA shares; the rest is history! Karl's Farm's produce is locally-grown and completely pesticide-free. Their seasonal vegetables are grown with care and distributed to Washington D.C. homes. They're located just 20 miles south of Washington at 5550 Stuckey Road, Pisgah, Maryland.
