3. Food Waste Reduction & Donation
As a grocery store, we sell lots of food, which means we sometimes produce food waste. We don’t like to just throw that food away, though. Instead, we donate all usable food and supplies to churches, reptile life, and wilderness preservation.
4. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
It all starts with our mindful staff, who make recycling a part of their everyday routine. Cardboard boxes? Yep! We recycle those, too. We also have recycling stations placed all around the store for our customers’ convenience.
5. Bulk Goods
According to bulkisgreen.org, bulk foods require less overall transportation to deliver to consumers. For starters: they don’t require the packaging components that must be produced and transported prior to being filled. Plus, the transportation of bulk product to retailers is more efficient because it can be packed more densely on a truck.
