Sustainability efforts begin at home and at a â€œhomeyâ€ business. Stonewall Kitchen, a company built on a grandmaâ€™s recipe for blueberry jam, has made significant inroads to sustainability, and was recognized for it. Congratulations!! Here is the news release:
YORK (Maine) â€” Specialty food manufacturer and retailer Stonewall Kitchen received the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Food Recovery Challenge Achievement Award for demonstrating its commitment to improving sustainable food management practices in 2010 and 2011.
“During the past few years, we have focused on improving our food and waste management practices,” said Janine Somers, director of marketing. “To date, we have developed an internal zero-waste and sustainability program. We have also updated our outbound packaging and compost process and materials. For example, our packing peanuts are water-soluble, compostable or recyclable.”
As an active participant in the EPA’s WasteWise Program, Stonewall Kitchen submitted its sustainable food management practices for consideration. By using a combination of single-sort recycling and composting, Stonewall Kitchen employees dispose items into designated containers that are sent to select Dumpsters that recycle plastic, metal and paper goods. Food waste is also sorted and bagged separately for local compost initiatives such as fertilizer for local landscapers and farms.
