sustainability

committed to the environment...

Since our founding in 1993, Liberty Heights Fresh has lessened the impact on our planet by always striving to reduce, reuse and recycle.

  •  We have never had incandescent bulbs in any of our lighting fixtures. We opened our doors with compact fluorescent bulbs back in 1993 and have recently updated to LED bulbs. Many of our interior and exterior lighting fixtures are reclaimed from Dirks Field, the present home of the Salt Lake Bees baseball stadium, while additional exterior fixtures are from the Meadowgold Dairy plant, now the home of the Salt Lake Valley Health Department in Murray.
  • We have been pioneer members of Salt Lake City's E2 Initiative since its inception.
  • Our store has enlisted to send all of our food waste to the anaerobic digester in North Salt Lake- which begins processing in 2018.
  • In the meantime, we compost all organic food waste and all bio-degradable packaging.
  • Every bit of ethically reclaimable food waste is used in soup stocks and day-old bread is turned into crostinis, croutons, and crumbs for future use.
  • All of our unwaxed corrugated cardboard has been separated for recycling for more than 20 years.
  • All plastic bags were phased out more than a dozen years ago and we encourage all of our guests to use their own reusable bags when shopping with us.
  • To offset fossil fuel generated power, we purchase wind powered shares from PacifiCorp regularly.
