Freezer Lights

We had a bright idea recently. We thought: let’s see what happens when we replace our traditional fluorescent freezer lights with light-emitting diodes (LEDs). These nifty energy savers out perform regular light bulbs and are better for the environment, so why not give them a try? But we had some questions: Would they pay for themselves? Would they perform well? Would they last?

Green Waste Bins

Our garbage is greener than most, thanks to a company-wide Green Waste Program that diverts food waste and other compostable materials from local landfills. Over the next few years, Green Waste Bins will be installed at each of our seven stores in Eugene, Corvallis, Portland, West Linn and Ashland.

Solar Panel output

At our Willamette store in Eugene, we are harnessing the power of the sun. In 2008, we increased our solar panel capacity to capture three times the amount of energy. Now that’s sustainable! Here, you will find real-time data that shows how much our solar system generates.

At Market of Choice, we do our best to walk the talk. That means striving for sustainability by meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. From packaging and composting to biodegradable bags and solar power, we continuously work to achieve that goal.

It begins with the products we carry, the materials we recycle, and the choices we offer customers. It’s also about buying local. Buying local simply means purchasing food, or any product or service that is produced, grown, or raised as close to your home as possible. We support local vendors, so that you can too.

But it doesn’t end there. Being sustainable also means investing in people, who in turn, invest in their community. We truly believe that paying our employees living wages and offering comprehensive benefits is an investment in our community. We can achieve even more, with your help. If you have an idea, contact us! We’ll consider them with care.
