We have made a huge commitment to reduce our impact on the planet and to treat every day like Earth Day.
So far, we have:
- Conserved 267.9 million kilowatts of electricity – enough energy to power all the homes in Napa, CA
- Saved enough water to fill almost 100 Olympic-size swimming pools
- Composted enough food waste to fill over 6,200 garbage trucks
- Diverted enough waste from landfills to fill over 6,200 garbage trucks
- Reduced our carbon footprint enough to be the equivalent of removing approximately 19,800 cars off U.S. roads
