Our Environmental Commitment
From non-toxic cleaning products to LED light bulbs and conscientious waste reduction, we strive to have the lowest possible impact on the environment. Every purchase we make and every product we use considers the short and long-term environmental and human costs.
Our goal is to live lightly on this planet while bringing nutritious foods to our community.
As an environmentally conscious company, we take many steps to be green. Some examples include:
1. Reducing water use with low flow toilets.
2. Conserving energy with LED bulbs
3. Using non-toxic cleaners
4. Avoiding waste by eliminating unnecessary packaging with bulk food selections and bulk filtered water.
5. Diverting waste from the landfill through reuse, recycling and composting.
6. Hiring local vendors to support the local economy and encourage less vehicle use and transport impact.
7. Our El Cerrito location utilizes solar paneling to offset energy usage.
