Inside America's Most Sustainable Supermarket
Launched in August 2012 by brothers Christian and Joseph Lane, in.gredients is a small grocer at the forefront of food retail sustainability (next door, the brothers also run Praecipio Consulting, an IT firm that helps businesses become more sustainable). Since opening, in.gredients has not sent one crumb of food to the landfill. Perhaps even more impressively, the store creates less than a pound of unrecyclable trash per month. Housed in a retrofitted, energy- and water-efficient former day-care center, in.gredients emphasizes local, package-free, unprocessed and—of course—tasty foods.
