Every Day is Earth Day!

Earth Day 2015 is April 22nd. This month, we’ll highlight some of the ways we are doing our part to preserve our Earth’s precious resources and reduce our carbon footprint.

For example, did you know that all of our new stores are built with a white reflective roof, or “cool” roof?

What’s a cool roof, you ask? It’s a white roof with high solar reflectance, which is the ability to reflect the rays of the sun. The roof reflects the solar rays, which reduces heat transfer into the building. This reduces the demand for air conditioning in the summer months which, in turn, reduces the amount of energy we need to keep our stores cool and inviting for our customers during the hot summer months.
