Stop & Shop showcases environmental commitment

Purchase, N.Y. -- As part of the 2013 launch of a commitment to responsible retailing, the Stop & Shop Supermarket Co. LLC is making efforts that reduce waste in stores and improve efficiencies in energy uses in both new and existing stores.

By 2020, the company has set a goal of getting to "zero waste," diverting 90% of waste going to landfills and incinerations through the expansion of its organic recycling program and new opportunities for recycling cardboard, plastic, paper, and single stream recycling.

"Stop & Shop has maintained a longstanding commitment to all of the communities it calls home," said Joe Kelley, president of Stop & Shop New England Division. "As we enter into our 100th year and reflect on how far we have come, our promise remains the same, to always support our loyal customers, neighborhoods and philanthropic communities in which we serve."

The Stop & Shop commitment to responsible retailing also includes providing health-and-wellness resources to customers, and focusing on healthier kids through its Passport to Nutrition interactive program.
