Wegmans goes green

Most people know that today, April 22nd, is Earth Day, but did you know that April is also Earth Month? Wegmans, who already consistently ranks in the top 10 of Fortune magazine’s best places to work, is making news again for their latest go green initiative.

Earlier this month Wegmans announced that it was teaming up with the Nature Conservancy to encourage its customers to use reusable bags. As part of the push, Wegmans will donate $.25 for every pound of paper and plastic bags saved, with a minimum donation of $10,000.

What makes the plan even better for New Yorkers is that all those funds will stay here at home.
