Improving Our Environment
Here are just a few examples of what we’re doing to improve our environment:
- We installed solar panels at our Milton location, saving 25% on our electrical expenditures.
- All organic waste from all departments, including our flower department, is picked up at our stores by Black Earth Compost to be turned into compost.
- Milton and Hingham have banned the use of single-use plastic bags, so please remember to bring your reusable bags. If you need some we offer four styles of reusable shopping bags.
- We stock many environmentally-friendly cleaning products.
- We’ve installed all LED lighting in our stores.
- We installed energy-efficient motors in our refrigeration units.
- We have high-efficiency Save Energy systems for heating and cooling.
- Our buyers purchase local produce when available. Not only is local produce fresher, but it travels far fewer miles to our stores, reducing carbon emissions. Also, family-owned local farms have a deep connection to their land and environment, and take extra precautions to preserve and maintain their land.
