Green Grocer

Today’s Maine Sunday Telegram reports on the Brighton Ave Rosemont’s green certification by the DEP.

The program, which is free, offers grocers technical assistance to identify no-cost measures to help them reduce their environmental impact. The participants are awarded points for sustainable practices, such as using non-toxic cleaning products and reducing stormwater runoff. Independent grocers need 100 points and large chains 150 points to be certified.
