The Heritage Store has always been about nature. We have touted natural, organic, earth friendly products for over 35 years. So, it's only natural (no pun intended) that the Heritage Store would partner with like minds, supplying free vegetable oil to Justin when he comes to visit. The Heritage provides vegetable waste oil from manufacturing to fuel multiple local vehicles.
The manufacturing and shipping departments of The Heritage have also instigated a system of reusing and reclaiming used pallets. To date, we have not purchased a single pallet in all the shipping of goods. We furthermore use only 100% recyclable Enviro-Fill packing peanuts. Well, with one exception – we do reuse Styrofoam peanuts sent to us from other vendors. But hey, we are recycling them.
The Heritage Store has gone “Green” in some most unusual ways. In this case, the green is not earth-friendly, eco-conscious per say. This green is over three hundred pounds of sea turtle.
The Heritage partnered with the Virginia Marine Science Museum's Stranding Center to help a turtle named Tiki. The Heritage donates vegetables for Tiki to eat, along with financial help. Well now, that's a green of a different color.
There are so many things our company does to be Green. Periodically, our food store gives away reusable shopping bags to reduce the use of plastic and paper bags. We converted our source of heating from oil to natural gas to reduce our effect on the environment. And there are so many more examples. Green is not a fad for us. It is who we have been for a long time. We are committed to continue finding new ways to be conscientious.
Most recently, The Heritage has partnered with NativeEnergy to offset the estimated 1,098 short tons of CO2 emissions resulting from The Heritage's use of electricity in 2007 and 2008. We are helping to build a new wind farm – the Owl Feather War Bonnet Wind Farm. The Heritage acquired the rights to the environmental attributes (“renewable energy credits,” or “RECs”) of the energy to be created by a 15,874-kilowatt (kW) share of the Owl Feather War Bonnet Wind Farm's generating capacity over the first 25 years of its commercial operations. The Heritage donated its rights to this stream of REC's to Clean Air-Cool Planet, an independent 501©(3) environmental organization, which will retire the REC's (meaning that CA-CP will not use or transfer them for any purpose).
The Heritage helped bring to this wind farm a portion of its above-market development and construction costs, helping it achieve economic viability and proceed to construction. The farm is scheduled for completion in 2008 and is located in the town of St. Francis on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. For more information look online at: www.NativeEnergy.com
