Director of Sustainability

Nugget Goes Green

At Nugget we love to celebrate Earth Day 365 days a year. And we are committed to constantly improving the impact we make on the environment. Over the last year we have focused on reducing our water and energy usage as well as our waste creation. Thanks to the leadership of our sustainability coordinator and the green practices we have implemented, we are excited to share that we’ve been recognized by the City of Davis as a Green Business Gold Member!

What impact did our efforts make last year?

  • We diverted over 5.5 million pounds of waste from the landfill. We did this by recycling cardboard and plastic, partnering with California Safe Soil to send food waste to be recycled into a liquid fertilizer, and by using 100% recyclable or compostable containers in our kitchens, bakeries and coffee bars.
  • Low-flow aerators were installed on sink faucets throughout our stores. This led us to reduce our water usage by 75% and save 3.8 million gallons of water.
  • We added energy-efficient LED lighting as well as energy efficient cooler cases with glass doors—to keep the cool air in and warm air out - to a handful of our stores.
