Green Initiatives at Apple Annie’s Bake Shop
For the last 35 years, it has always been our belief that small changes can have a big impact in our community and around the world. Being good stewards of our environment and this city that we love have always been at the center of our core values. We strive to source not only ingredients in a sustainable way, but also to find companies that are willing to partner with us on these efforts. Moving away from styrofoam plates to a recyclable cardboard packaging items, choosing napkins and plates made of recycled paper, and using reusable cold packs in shipping, are just the beginning. We continue to make changes in the production side as well, which include switching to LED lighting, and monitoring our use of water on a daily basis, as well as, using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. We always donate unsold items to food banks and charities as well.
-Making sure unsold items are donated to food banks
-Reuse & repurpose items when possible
– Using local products/produce in baking when possible and available
-Reusing and recycling containers that raw materials arrive in
-Reusing recyclable/reusable packaging when possible napkins, plates, tote bags, cups, utensils
– Researching companies that we buy ingredients and products from, making sure items are sourced in a sustainable way and choosing suppliers who do the same
