We love where we live…
We want to keep Nelson and the entire planet happy and healthy.
Here’s how we do our bit, with your help!
At FreshChoice all our check out bags and produce trays are biodegradable. Nevertheless, we have been reducing the number of bags we issue to customers each year.
We encourage you to use reusable bags. We have a range of reusable bags available for sale, and frequently run offers for free resuable bags when you spend $100 or more in one transaction.
We appreciate your cooperation as we continue the following initiatives:
- Pack seven – We will pack seven items in each checkout bag if possible. Our checkout operators are trained to know how many items can be put in each bag.
- Three items or less – We will ask you if these items are OK as they are and will happily provide a checkout bag if you request one.
- Box it – We always have boxes available for your groceries.
During our recent refurbishment we replaced the store’s fluorescent tube lighting with new LED tubes, these make a big difference on energy saving. The renovated freezer section now has lights within the cabinets that switch on via motion-sensors, providing additional energy savings.
One of our and your greatest contributions to protecting our environment is buying as much as possible within the 200km radius rule – it reduces our (and your) carbon footprint, supports the local economy and ensures produce is market fresh when you walk in the door.
