The Big Carrot BYO and Eco-Points Programs

At The Big Carrot, we strive to curate and sell the best food possible. This is reflected in our core values – organic, non-GMO, fairly traded, local and sustainable seafood. We also aim for best practices in our operations, to have as little impact on the planet as we can. This is a challenge as a grocery retailer but our goal is to do our best and always find ways to improve.

In early 2019 we struck a Waste Reduction Working Group to review different areas of our business including packaging, garbage disposal and customer incentives. Some of our actions were easy to implement and others have longer-term deadlines but the good news is, we came up with some new, innovative ways that we can all do a little better.

BYO incentives – These simple habits will have the greatest impact on reducing the waste we produce.
