Star Cares

Star Market Recycles

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.

That equals:

  • Enough energy to power 20 houses for 6 months
  • 343 trees saved
  • 141,470 gallons of water saved

We also recycle 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

Year-to-date your local Star Market has:

  • Saved 34,690 trees

  • Saved 26.5 tons of raw materials to make new glass

  • Saved enough energy to power 100 houses for 6 months

  • Saved 707,350 gallons of water

  • Saved 221 gallons of fuel (oil)

  • Saved 44 cubic yards of landfill space
