Like you, we do our best to recycle everything we can. Here are some of the results from our efforts:
Each month we recycle about 20 tons of cardboard from our Star Markets and Pharmacy locations.
- Enough energy to power 20 houses for 6 months
- 343 trees saved
- 141,470 gallons of water saved
We also recycle glass...an average of 4.42 tons of it!
That means we save:
- 5.3 tons of raw materials to make new glass
- 44.2 gallons of fuel (oil)
- 8.84 cubic yards of landfill space
