Sustainable Business Practices At Work

I just saw the following video by United Natural Foods Inc. This company is a distributor of certified organic foods. Yeah, it is a bit of an infomercial, but it drives the point home that business can maximize profit by being sustainable. Reducing costs and reducing negative impact on the environment is where it’s at for United Natural Foods. An example of how they reduce their environmental impact is the wood used in their offices is sustainably harvested. They have also installed sensors in their offices so when people leave the room the lights automatically shut off. Very cool! A big thumbs up from Green Business to United Natural Foods Inc. for making money with a conscience.
