As Earth Day approaches, we want share with you what we are doing to be a leader in environmental sustainability. We are always looking at ways to improve our stores, reduce our energy consumption and packaging, increase recycling, and decrease our demand for fossil fuels. We are also evaluating our organic waste stream, expanding our sustainable seafood program, engaging local farmers, optimizing our distribution network, integrating renewable resource energy, and evaluating state of the art high efficiency technologies. We are beginning to envision how we would like to grow our sustainability efforts in the future and how we can best serve our customers, community, and the world.

These are just some of the things that we do to recycle more, consume less, and minimize our environmental impact. This Earth Day and every day we are focused on becoming a more responsible and engaged corporate citizen and member of your community. Our Team at Price Chopper is inspired by changing times and steadfast values that call upon us to act in the name of a better future, not just for today and tomorrow, but for generations to come!
