Extraordinary Sustainability

Here at Fork Lift, we’re committed to working towards a greener, more sustainable future every day, in every store. With the help of our Sustainability Coordinator and Green Guru Team, we’re constantly improving our environmental impact through eco-friendly actions like reducing water and energy usage, recycling, diverting food waste, donating to local nonprofits and more. It’s not always easy being green, but it sure is worth it!

Economic Vitality: Taking care of business (sustainably speaking)

We’re dedicated to being good stewards of our resources, supporting local growers and producers and partnering with companies who share our values for sustainability.

Almost every act of sustainability falls into more than one of these categories, as all three pillars are connected and work together to create a better future.
