Fresh & Easy, a local neighbourhood market chain with stores across Nevada, Arizona, and California, announced this week it has been using a unique recycling method which has allowed them to recycle and reuse more than 2,000,000 plastic display trays. The UV light technology, custom built by UV Doctor, sanitizes the plastic display trays so the market can ship them back to their stores and reuse them. The estimated effect of their using this technology is saving 1,140,000 pounds of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere, as well as keeping 400,000 pounds of plastic out of the landfill. Fresh & Easy is also looking for new ways to install energy efficient refrigeration systems, automatically dimming lights, and they’ve already begun constructing a 500,000 square foot solar roof at their distribution centre. If you live near a Fresh & Easy market, be sure to give them a visit, and support their sustainable business practices.
