Truck to rail: reducing the carbon footprint

Here at Giant/Martin’s, our commitment to the environment runs deep. With Earth Day coming up, we thought we would share some of the steps we’ve taken to reduce our carbon footprint. For instance, instead of using trucks to move food from producers to our shelves, we’ve begun to use trains where possible. This change has already made a big impact. Last year alone, our move from trucks to trains helped save 2,588 metric tons of carbon emissions! This meant that there were 758 fewer long-haul trucks on the road, saving over 265,852 gallons of diesel fuel.

Thank you Heroes for a job well done! Remember, growing greener isn’t just for Earth Day, it’s a year-round commitment. At Giant/Martin’s we care for the environment and our local communities every day.
