We are a natural/organic grocery store.
Wise moms everywhere remind us that actions speak louder than words. We can all talk about saving our planet but making those smart and sometimes challenging choices every day is what's going to get the job done. We've been trying to make green choices since we opened our first store. We understand that companies can have a large impact on our environment.
We were the first major retailer to offset 100% of our energy use with wind energy credits. And we are glad to see that some of the world's largest retailers are following the example we've set in green building, the use of solar power, company-wide recycling programs, internal green mission programs and support for organics. When more companies take green steps, we all win.
Do we have a perfect track record? Nope. Have we found solutions for all of the green issues affecting our stores? Not yet. But we are working on it. We promise you that our team members are concerned, driven people who are searching for ways to do more every day. If that sounds passionate, well, it is. The people who work here — from the CEO on down — are passionate about food, good health and the future of this little blue dot that we all call home.
