As many of you know, this week had two major Earth celebration days. Earth Day, which was this past Tuesday, and Arbor Day, which takes place on the last Friday in April, (today!). These two days allow us to focus on the Earth and all that it provides. In our busy lives we often forget to stop and think about how everything we use, draw energy from, and consume comes from the resources on our planet. Also, we forget that without conscious care and moderation, these resources could become a scarcity. So, this week really got us thinking about our environmental stewardship as a company.
Hill Country Market is located next to Breezy Hill Nursery, who partnered with local area schools this week to plant trees and discuss the importance of Arbor Day with the students. We know Breezy Hill is always invested in the care of the environment, but what are some things Hill Country Market does?
At Hill Country Market we feature a variety of organic products. Not only that, but our produce, meat, tea and coffee come from environmentally conscious companies that we are proud to partner with. We are constantly considering what we can do as a store to minimize waste and run cleanly. The product we bring in and make, seeks to call attention to the Earth and what it provides by featuring more natural ingredients.
While we can always improve, we appreciate that Earth Day and Arbor Day serve as reminders to continue being environmentally conscious.
Have a great weekend!
