Preserving our Environment
Reducing our impact
Twain Harte Market is passionately committed to recycling and reducing waste. We are constantly looking at ways of diverting waste from the land fill and redirecting the waste to reusable products.
We reuse our pallets with a return program to our vendors. We recycle up to 75 pallets every week.
In addition, we have been working hard at reducing our own carbon footprint. Since, 2010, we have cut our energy bill in half. We have done this by installing a computerized energy management system and changing our lighting inside the store.
Every week we recycle
We have worked hard to extend our green reach beyond our own company to that of our suppliers. For many years, we have consolidated shipments from multiple vendors in the bay area. So instead of four or five trucks driving up the hill, there is only one.
Utilizing local vendors is another way Twain Harte Market reduces our carbon footprint. We like to include local vendors from Tuolumne, Calaveras, and Amador County in our store whenever we can. Examples are: Cover’s, Calaveras Olive Oil, Murphy’s Mustard, Sciabica’s Olive Oil, Hippie Stix, Dambacher Farms, Buzzbees Honey, Tuolumne Honey Company, Indigeny and many others. Twain Harte Market carries the largest selection of local wines in our county.
