It’s More Than Food. It’s Our Future.

Beyond providing great quality, prices, and customer service, we are committed to protecting the world we live in. We strive to become as earth‍-‍friendly as possible by significantly reducing our energy consumption and effectively managing the waste we create. And we know there's a ton more to do. That's why every day we consider our future when making the decisions of the present. Here are just a few of the things we are doing here at Big Y to affect the community (and planet) we all love to call home.


We have eliminated single‍-‍use plastics bags at checkout from all of our Big Y, Fresh Acres Market, Table & Vine and Big Y Express locations.



432 tons of plastic and wrappings, 15483 tons of cardboard and paper, 1 billion bottles and cans and over 2,500 tons of food waste don’t end up in our landfills.



All of our coolers and freezers use energy‍-‍efficient LEDs and are powered with electronically commutated motors using 50% less energy than traditional motors.
