Organic Garage recognizes the need to have our strong listing criteria for products we sell in the store relate to how we operate as a company. This means that the day-to-day operations of our stores need to be as environmentally friendly as possible. We believe in our role as environmental leaders and will continue to demonstrate to our customers the highest regard for sustainability.
HERE ARE JUST SOME OF THE INITIATIVES THAT WE PARTAKE IN:
Cardboard Recycling - Organic Garage is pleased to work with our waste companies to help ensure that all cardboard is recycled and returned to the supply chain to help be reused for anything from recycled packaging materials, tissue products and paper products.
Produce Waste Recycling Program - Organic Garage is pleased to work with our waste companies to help ensure that all vegetable trimmings and fruit waste is recycled. This “organic” material is used as cattle feed.
Packaging Materials - Organic Garage works with our packaging partners to reduce plastic packaging and use better alternatives. We are constantly looking for the “next generation” of packaging materials to help reduce our environmental footprint.
Store Equipment - Organic Garage is always looking for more environmentally friendly equipment that uses less energy. For example, all of our frozen bunkers use closed glass doors to retain the cold.
