More Reasons To Love Wegmans

I think there's even an ad campaign about it. When actor Alec Baldwin asked his mother to move out of NY, Carol Baldwin replied vehemently that she wouldn't leave Wegmans.

Wegmans is a Rochester, NY-based chain of grocery stores, offering a wide variety of items that doesn't just stop at food. They also offer takeout, seasonal and home decor, plants and flowers, books, cards, and video, and a growing natural foods department that sparked my interest in environmental living several years ago. I am lucky to live a hop, skip and a jump from one of their stores, and I'm with Carol on this. I wouldn't leave Wegmans, either.

This month, as we celebrate Earth Day, Wegmans has presented an entire webpage on their sustainability efforts. This includes buying local produce, offering reusable shopping bags, and an explanation of their own efforts to reduce their carbon footprint.

And for you and me, who aren't a big grocery chain, they include ways you can help at home, including a page on starting your own garden. Check it out and go green!
