Green Commitment

George Bowers Grocery is committed to small actions for big environmental results — some of which were available in 1881 and others that are brand new:

Inventory

  1. Much of our produce, meat, cheese, honey, and other foods are grown locally or sourced through a local/regional distributor.
  2. In the summer we are a CSA drop for Nu-Beginning Farms. Nu-Beginning coordinates with several local farmers to offer a diverse box subscription of local produce from May through October.
  3. Of our imported “fancy groceries”, we bundle shipping in the most responsible fashion.

Operations

  1. Recycled plastic bags! We encourage you to bring your own.
  2. We recycle glass, plastic, and aluminum.
  3. All lightbulbs are on dimmers, and rarely used in the afternoon!
  4. We’ve added green plants for improved indoor air quality.

Bonus

  1. Many of you can easily walk or ride your bike here!
