The company gives its 100% when it comes to sustainable and green initiatives. The company also helps its customers participate as far as being friendly to the environment is concerned. The fresh foods joint has recycling centers in certain locations like Dover, New Philadelphia, Wooster Milltown, and Ashland. The trend of recycling which has been going along for decades has proved beneficial for the planet. The system of recycling helps in diverting huge amounts of waste stuff away from incinerators and landfills. On recycling one bottle made of glass, the energy saved is enough to light a bulb for about four hours. Carrying out the procedure of manufacturing materials by using recycled goods (with only some exceptions) helps in saving water and energy. It also generates minimum amount of pollution.
Tesco’s 3rd quarter interim statement of management revealed that the Fresh & Easy’s sales went up by 1.8 per cent year after year.
