Online grocery customers at The Giant Co. can now access an easy-to-use environmental and social impact rating system powered by HowGood.
“Our new partnership with HowGood reinforces our commitment to healing the planet – whether it’s through greater product transparency or reducing waste,” said Manuel Haro, VP of strategy and communications for The Giant Co. “We continue to explore opportunities throughout The Giant Co.’s entire operation to do what we can to further lessen our environmental footprint and empower sustainable choices in our customers’ shopping experience.”
Customers of the company’s online shopping platforms, Giant Direct and Martin’s Direct, can now access environmental and social impact ratings powered by HowGood. HowGood analyzes each product ingredient against environmental and social criteria, including farming practices, treatment of animals, labor conditions and chemical use. Customers can also search products by specific sustainable attributes. Any product that receives one, two or three leaves is one of the most sustainable products on the market. The more leaves a product has, the more sustainable it is, making it easy for customers to make informed choices when they shop.
Other sustainable practices employed by The Giant Co. include the EPA-recognized food rescue program, Meat the Needs; plastic bag recycling and plastic reduction; a solar field and bee pollinator habitat at its Carlisle corporate headquarters; reducing emissions through tree-planting with GreenPrint; installing energy-efficient fixtures and reducing refrigerant emissions in all stores; and providing customers with sustainable products such as coffee, tea and seafood.
