Green Initiatives at the Raisin Rack
The Raisin Rack just doesn't talk the talk when it comes to being part of the green movement and protecting the Earth. We walk the walk in our commitment to Earth-friendly endeavors. We strive to be good stewards of the valuable resources we are blessed to have on the planet.
Our stores incorporate a number of environmentally conscious management practices that we would like to highlight.
Both stores participate in American Electric Power's green product program, purchasing the maximum number of renewable energy certificates that will represent up to 100,000 kilowatt hours per month.
The Raisin Rack recycles its cardboard and plastic bags. The bags in our checkout lanes are made from post-recycled plastics and recycled paper, and we offer reusable polyprophylene bags. Our Westerville cafe and Canton juice bar use corn-based containers. Our lighting is energy efficient and is being converted to low-wattage lamps, and in Westerville the heating and air conditioning system reclaims the heat generated from its operation to heat the water used in the store. We also have on-site containers for our customers to recycle paper and plastic.
For more information on recycling in the Columbus area, contact SWACO at 614-871-5100 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Our customers at the Canton store can visit www.plaintownship.com or call 330-451-7808.
