    According to the Whole Foods blog, they have reduced their carbon footprint in a variety of ways. They offset the amount of nonrenewable energy they use with wind power, and they are the first large-scale retail company to have accomplished this. They use solar power and compost, though it is not clear how much or how often. They also make an effort to sell products using recycled paper or other biodegradable materials. Decades ago they stopped using disposable bags at the checkout, which reduces their carbon footprint and encourages shoppers to do the same by investing in a re-usable bag. They also give some monetary compensation to customers with a re-usable bag at the checkout. However, they still import some products from around the globe which uses much more fuel than locally grown and manufactured products.
