!Here are some of the ways City Feed is doing it's part everyday of the year!
Since our start in 2000, we have consistently taken initiative to be sustainable in all aspects of our business, and take every opportunity to decrease our environmental footprint.
We were recognized as one of Boston's sustainable leaders with a 2009 Green Business Award, presented by Mayor Menino on behalf of the City of Boston. We also received a Bike Friendly Business Award in 2008.
We are proud to be participating in the Sustainable Business Leader Program, and have created a "Green Team" within our staff to implement an action plan that continues our efforts to reduce waste and lessen City Feed's environmental impact.
Through working with Save That Stuff's Recycling Program, our two stores continue to reduce our carbon footprint every year! In 2008 we reduced by 20 metric tons of Carbon Equivalent and in 2009 we did 26 metric tons. That's equal to removing 36 cars from the roadways over those two years!
Download the 2009 report from Save That Stuff for more stats!
Here are some of our daily practices that demonstrate our commitment to the environment:
- With an emphasis on fresh, local, and sustainable food,we reduce "food miles" by carrying over 600 local and regional products, and source directly from local farmers whenever possible.
- We recycle all card board boxes, paper, plastic containers, tin cans and glass bottles.
- City Feed on Centre St. composts all food scraps, coffee grounds, produce waste, to-go coffee cups, and soup containers. City Feed on Boylston composts all coffee grounds and vegetable matter.
- We encourage you to bring your own mug with a 25-cent back incentive!
- All menus and flyers are printed locally on 100% recycled paper.
- Our City Feed tote bags are made in New Hampshire from recycled cotton.
- We offer recycled bio-degradable plastic bags for our customers' purchases.
- Our cold cups are Greenware, made of corn-based materials that are 100% compostable. Our to-go coffee cups and soup containers are also compostable.
- We have clearly marked compost, recycle, and trash receptacles that educate our customers and make it convenient to dispose of their waste properly.
Ain't she pretty...

Today they have 11 full time worker-managers, electronic design and pre-press capabilities, fully equipped press, digital copy and bindery departments, and a growing customer base of non-profit organizations, socially responsible businesses and government agencies.
