Environment & Sustainability

What we’re doing to protect the earth, and how you can help.

Questions about how to recycle tricky items? Earth 911 and How2recycle labels help make disposing of your containers easy.
In honor of World Oceans Day on June 8th, we asked one of America’s leading experts on sustainable fishing and the author of the bestselling books Four Fish and American Catch, Paul Greenberg, to tell the story of wild-caught salmon and explain just how important these fish are to Alaska and the future of its ocean habitats.
A couple of years ago, farmer Tony Emmi’s neighbor asked him for a favor. Mr. Winter, his friendly, longtime beekeeper and proprietor of Winter Apiaries—located just down the road, outside Syracuse, in upstate New York—was doing some renovations on his property and wanted to know if Tony would be willing to store some of his honey bees for him temporarily.
Together we’re working to build a better food system. This big undertaking breaks down into countless smaller actions, including being transparent about what goes (or doesn’t go) into your box.
We believe sustainability is the most vital ingredient to great seafood. That’s why we’ve partnered with Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch®, a non-profit organization who shares our commitment to building a better food system and is one of the world’s most well-respected guides to sustainable seafood. As much as we love cooking with fish, we recognize the urgent need to source it responsibly. The ocean covers 71 percent of the Earth’s surface and is home to more than one million species. We rely on it for everything from our livelihoods to the air we breathe to providing us with a steady supply of healthy, delicious seafood. But just as we depend on the ocean for so much, it in turn depends on us for protection.
We make a point to source materials that we can recycle when we’re done using them for dinner. While a lot of you are recycling them, we’ve found that some of you aren't. But why? In this post, we'll be looking at how people are reusing the various components of their packages in creative ways instead of recycling them.
