On June 25th, we welcomed a new store in Reno, Nevada. There are many green aspects of our new store from skylights to new LED lights in frozen cases. One of the most exciting is a new partnership with Full Circle Compost and Hungry Mother Organics. At Whole Foods Market our sustainability goals include moving to zero waste by keeping organic waste out of landfills. Since the city of Reno doesn’t compost, Full Circle is going to take our food waste and make it into compost for us. Full Circle recycles organic waste into high quality soil amendments and custom soil mixes for the Reno area.
