The Brick Goes Green
At The Brick, environmental sustainability is something we practice every day. Like saving you more, going green is one of our obsessions.
We first implemented our Project Green strategy in 2007. This project was intended to have an immediate and positive impact on the environment, as well as set the stage for future initiatives that would allow The Brick to become a leader in environmental sustainability. We strive to take advantage of every opportunity to help maintain our planet for future generations.
Project Green aligns directly with our core values: By keeping our waste in check, we can keep costs low and continue to offer great prices on household products, as well as continue to be a strong community partner and global citizen.
In 2016, our 220 stores, corporate office and six distribution centres diverted 68% of our company waste. Our distribution centres alone redirected 81% of waste, with some stopping as much as 88% of waste from ending up in landfills.
