New York City -- Mom’s Organic Market has opened its seventh store, in Timonium, Md. Along with featuring 100%-certified organic produce, and organic and natural grocery products, the new Mom’s was built with the environment in mind.
"We believe that we are the most environmentally-responsible grocery chain in the country," said Scott Nash, who founded Mom's in 1987 with a $100 investment, in a report in The Gourmet Retailer.
Like all other Mom's units, the Timonium store is powered by 100% wind power. Skylights and LEDs illuminate the aisles, and energy-efficient, closed-door coolers help reduce the need for heating and cooling.
Outside, two electric car charging stations are available for public use for free.
