Kroger promoting Sustainability Lives Here
In celebration of Earth Month, The Kroger Co. is highlighting its commitment to sustainable practices through its annual Sustainability Lives Here event. Sustainability Lives Here, running now through May 5, features $100 in digital coupons on sustainably produced products and information about ways customers can extend food life, minimize food waste at home and much more.
"Sustainability Lives Here is a platform that makes it easy for customers to participate in our sustainability programs and commitments,” said Lisa Zwack, Kroger's head of sustainability, in a press release.
Customer insights illustrate that a growing number of shoppers want to make better, more informed purchase decisions. The story behind a product has become a motivating factor for many customers.
Kroger said it offers thousands of sustainably sourced and produced products in its stores and through its e-commerce channels, including its own Simple Truth brand, which offers a growing assortment of Fair Trade Certified products like coconut, coffee, sugar and tea. Members of Kroger's Simple Truth team recently traveled to the Philippines to visit several of its Fair Trade Certified coconut farms to see its community investment partnership in action, including how the company is enhancing meal programs for local school children.
"Kroger is committed to responsible sourcing throughout our supply chain and having a positive effect on our communities and our planet," Zwack said. "Sustainability Lives Here makes it easy for customers who share this passion to discover and try eco-friendly items they can feel good about."
During the three-week Sustainability Lives Here event, more than 50 sustainably produced brands are offering Kroger customers more than $100 in combined digital coupon savings. For every digital coupon that is redeemed through the program, Kroger will donate the equivalent of one meal to Feeding America, up to one million meals.
