Walter Stewart’s and Planet New Canaan teamed up to promote the use of reusable
bag and support The NC All Sports Booster Club. For every reusable bag used during the recent campaign we donated 5 cents to the NC All Sports Booster Club.
We raised $463.65 and shoppers reused 9273 bags (instead of paper or plastic)!
Planet New Canaan is a non-partisan group, founded by local members of the community, committed to bringing awareness about the environmental issues that face New Canaan and the world, both today and in the future, through film screenings, presentations and community outreach.
We are celebrating Earth Day by giving out a FREE Walter Stewart’s Reusable Tote Bag with every purchase!
Stewart’s has long been committed to offering eco-friendlier products and eco-responsible practices. You’ll find greener household cleaners and laundry detergents, we use Eco Hippo bags, the durable eco-responsible alternative to plastic shopping bags; we collect plastic bags for recycling, we offer a glass bottle deposit/return program with Organic Glass Bottled Milk from Trickling Springs Creamery, we of course also offer re-usable shopping bags and we are committed to offering the best selection of local fare from the finest CT producers (Cato Corner Farm, Millstone Farm, Wave Hill Breads, Four Plus Granola, Shearwater Organic Coffee, Fat Stone Farm, Gilbertie’s Herbs, Little’s Cuisine, Arethusa Milk and so many more!), as well as organic and sustainable foods, and bio-dynamic wines. We will soon offer paper straws (replacing plastic) at our coffee station and we are replacing all of fluorescent lighting with LED and upgrading our refrigerated cases to new more-efficient models (check out our new Dairy Doors!).
