A new supermarket in Massachusetts aims to be the greenest supermarket in the US.
Hannaford Supermarket has vegetation growing on top of its building that is also equipped with solar panels for energy. In fact, the pavement around the store is grain-based and this helps reflect the sunlight so that it doesn’t heat up and contribute to global warming.
The supermarket also hopes to educate with instructional displays placed on entryways, that are interactive for children and adults. All to help instruct consumers on sustainable green principles and the problems facing the globe today.
It also offers sustainable carry bags to its customers in the place of plastic carry bags. This is a fairly new initiative set to launch here in the United States, where no current legislation exists limiting the production of carry bags.
