ShopRite is passionate about keeping our communities beautiful for generations to come. With this passion comes a commitment to sustainable business practices through the reduction of energy use, diversion of food waste and the sourcing of products from environmentally responsible suppliers, manufacturers and farmers.
But it is through a partnership with their customers that they truly help to make a difference to protect the environment. For years, customers have teamed up with ShopRite to recycle waste, donate unsalable food to food banks and pantries, clean up parks and beaches and reuse their shopping bags at checkout.
Bag ReUse – ShopRite has promoted bag reuse for many years. Today, they continue to provide a broad assortment of reusable bags, and have plastic bag recycling bins at the front of each store. In fact, in the last seven years their customers have kept approximately 380 million bags out of landfills! This means less trash was sent to the landfills and fewer resources were needed to create new bags.
