As we design new stores and update our current locations, Thorntons carefully considers opportunities to improve our environment.
Some of our efforts include:
In all of our currently remodeled stores as well as all future renovations, we have installed (or will install) LED cooler lights. We also have selected Beta LED exterior lighting for 39 of our stores and will continue to use them for all future renovations and new stores.
In an effort to reduce our energy consumption, we make strong use of natural lighting. We use window shades to help keep our stores naturally cooler and use natural lighting to reduce our usage of electric fixtures.
We have two dumpsters on most of our premises, one for miscellaneous waste and one for cardboard recycling.
We use Energy Star appliances in all of our locations.
Our stores are cleaned internally and externally with cleaners that are environmentally safe and friendly.
Many Thorntons locations offer both E85 and Biodiesel for energy-efficient automobiles and trucks.
