We continue to do our environmental best at Market of Choice. I have statistics from your Willamette Market to offer you that highlight our efforts to compost food waste and recycle to reduce garbage waste.
Composted food waste – 157 tons
Garbage weight – 162 tons
Composted food waste – 156 tons
Garbage weight – 165 tons
Composted food waste – 145 tons
Garbage weight – 170 tons
Composted food waste – 200 tons
Garbage weight – 186 tons
At Willamette, garbage weight has decreased steadily the past four years, which means we are sorting our storewide waste more carefully.
Food waste has fluctuated a little, due to a combination of staff ordering, storing and handling perishable products. The dissemination of food waste translates into more products donated to Food For Lane County and the Master Gardener program, meaning less is headed to the landfill.
I look forward to 2014 being the best year, yet!
