EVERY DAY IS EARTH DAY AT THE CO-OP
Co-ops Reduce Impact, Benefit Environment

The above title of an article by Co+op Stronger Together reinforces the fact that the Syracuse Real Food Co-op exercises Earth Day principles on an everyday basis. Here are some excerpts from the article: " Food co-ops have been looking for ways to reduce impact for decades-many co-ops were formed by communities that wanted to buy food grown without synthetic chemicals and get dry goods like flour, oats and rice in bulk to reduce packaging waste.
You can still buy organic and bulk goods at the food co-op, but in the era of climate change, co-ops continue to lead in new and inspiring ways to reduce their environmental impact and be better businesses and neighbors."

City Market/Onion River Co-op in Burlington, VT, is drastically reducing refrigerant emissions.
Co-ops across the country are reducing food waste as an important part of reducing landfill use for grocery retailers and are developing creative solutions such as donating food that might otherwise be wasted to community organizations. Our Co-op gives all it's produce trimmings etc to a local pig farmer who feeds them to their naturally raised hogs and donates food to local food banks.

Earth Day is on this Saturday, April 22nd, and is a time to look around and see the things that we can personally do make our Earth a better place to live. We at the Co-op are supporting Earth Day principles every day. We hope you will too. Here is link to the rest of the story: Co-ops Reduce Impact
