6,072 old light bulbs 21,760 lbs. of broken electronics 380,000 pallets
     
marc's recycled shredded paper Marc's recycled approximately 345,452 lbs. of paper

As a result, in 2014, 2,936 trees, 65,636 gallons of oil, 1,209,083 gallons of water, 829,085 kilowatt hours of energy & 17,273 cubic yards of landfill space were conserved!


Some current concepts and tools we are utilizing to help in our green efforts are:
  • We improved our fuel economy by 15% with a new tractor fleet
  • Marc's improved our lift trucks efficiency by 30% by using the brake system to generate power
  • We switched our warehouse lights from sodium to Fluorescent which is 48% more efficient & last 20% longer
  • We started using high efficiency battery chargers that use less electricity and lengthen battery life
  • Marc's is saving electricity & trees by using electronic means instead of paper for faxes and picking product
  • Marc's sold hundreds of thousands of reusable shopping bags under cost to reduce the use of plastic bags
Sustainability through farming:
  • Marc’s is committed to transition to 100% cage free eggs by 2025. We're working with our egg supplier to support the shift from traditional to cage-free farming & do currently offer cage-free eggs at Marc's.
