Reducing our environmental impact means more than simply using less energy and water. It also means building more efficient stores and facilities, exploring new solutions for recycling and reducing waste, investing in renewable energy, and working with farmers as well as other businesses and organizations to address climate change. Working together we can better understand and reduce our environmental impact on all the communities we touch.

It’s a big challenge and we’re making big progress. We’re trying to develop more environmentally friendly cups and are working hard to expand our recycling program in an effort to reduce the waste we create.
