Mollie Stone’s carries as many local and sustainable products as possible. The chain is continually searching for the highest quality products and for them the definition of high quality, including that these brands have sustainable values.
The chain carries pork, beef, produce and wine from companies with regenerative practices and there is seafood certified by the Aquaculture Stewardship Council and the Marine Stewardship Council. Even the company’s private label vitamins are sustainability focused.
All Mollie Stones’ locations feature all-LED energy-saving lighting systems. The stores’ living walls, which are watered with recycled water, are as beautiful as they are useful. The grocer’s stores also all participate in food waste donation programs. Mollie Stone’s teams with Food Runners to distribute and redistribute food.
“Marin Sanitary built a green sustainable food waste facility that turns food into methane gas to run their buildings,” says Jeff Laine, Greenbrae Store Manager. “We put all our food waste into bins outside, and Marin Sanitary picks it up and uses it by turning it into energy for their plant. All other food waste that we have we give to the SF-Marin Food Bank.”
Mollie Stones is a Northern California nine store chain, headquartered in Mill Valley. All locations are in the San Francisco Bay area.
