“We feel it is very important to report how we were able to reduce both waste and save money by the use of the StyroGenie. At Briargrove, we used information along with our other eco-successes in our school’s application to become a Green Flag National Wildlife Federation Eco-School… the first elementary school to receive the “green flag” award in HISD.” –Rebecca Luman P.E., LEED AP BD+C Parent Advisor, Kids for Saving Earth Club, Briargrove Elementary School, HISD PTO Community Service & Sustainability Advisor, Briargrove ES

“Pershing went from using approximately 30 trash bags a day to about 10 once they began using the StyroGenie,” said Kim Urban, who oversees the StyroGenie program for HISD. “That’s a significant savings of labor when considering the number of garbage bags that aren’t being hauled to the dumpster. In addition, we see a substantial savings in solid waste hauling and garbage costs. The intangible savings are those being done to the environment by the reduction of carbon emissions and the significant reduction of what these schools are putting into the landfill.” –Kim Urban, HISD

Retail Supermarkets

Sustainability is a key initiative for retail supermarkets — green company policies are good for the environment, financially and they help companies better connect with the communities in which they serve. Supermarkets nationally are making significant strides toward goals in energy, food waste and emissions reduction.

In a world where the consumer voice is louder than ever, grocers have evolved by listening to their customers to build strategies to achieve sustainable growth. Foodservice Sustainability sees this as a great opportunity to partner with retailers to expand and exceed their sustainability objectives and goals.
