US Foodservice San Francisco on Earth Day 2010

Today marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. It is a day focused on protecting and enhancing our planet.

Brian Isaeff, Territory Manager with US Foodservice San Francisco demonstates how easy it is to pick up trash and save the planet

Some media outlets estimate that over 1 billion people across the globe will participate in activities in some small way. Some assist with area clean ups while others may ensure that they only use environmentally friendly products, or recycle a little more.

With these items in mind, I would like to share a few facts with everyone here regarding the US Foodservice San Francisco Division:

We are a certified Green Business and continue to focus on new ways to reduce our carbon foot print and protect the environment while reducing costs.

Examples would include:
Researching Solar Power for use at our facility
Using Bio Fuels for tractors and material handling equipment
Using automated systems to maximize efficiencies with our refrigeration system
Reducing Electrical use at the facility by 10%
Participate in a Storm Water Program ensuring waste and pollutants do not enter local estuaries
Recycling of card board, stretch film, mixed paper and other items within the facility
(This has totaled over 2 MILLION pounds since we started the Green Initiative in 2007)
Reducing standard waste by 13% a year over the past 3 years (all that recycling not going to land fills)
