We have a history of taking the lead when it comes to running sustainable stores and we’re focused on continuing to do the right thing in every area of our business.
eco-friendly products and sustainable choices
We’ve become one of the first retailers in North America to actively commit to a sustainable seafood approach.
building and running energy efficient stores
In May 2010, we were nominated for our 5th BC Hydro Power Smart Award. As we've remodeled and built new stores over the years, we've incorporated leading edge energy-efficient equipment and processes. For each project, the annual energy saved by these Power Smart features is enough to power several dozen average family homes per year. We’re proud to be a BC Hydro Power Smart Leader.
We also do our best to help customers reduce waste with reward programs and services that encourage the recycling of plastic bags and the use of reusable bags. We also offer conveniences like our pharmacy medication disposal service.
We take our waste very seriously and recycle up to 90% of the cardboard, plastics and organics that come into our stores, including our plastic shopping bags, which when returned to us, are recycled into new plastic bags.
