Celebrating Earth Day

Earth Day PosterWalter Stewart’s has long been committed to offering eco-friendlier products and eco-responsible practices.

  • US Food Rescue Walter Stewart’s has teamed up with US Food Rescue and their volunteers to tackle the problem of food waste head on. Food Rescue US picks up all of their edible perishables every day, and transports the food to local food pantries and social service agencies.

  • Compostable Produce Bags Walter Stewart’s offers the only compostable produce bag approved for use in New Canaan’s Food Scrap program.
