Prioritizing the Environment
We believe we have a responsibility to serve our customers over the long run by doing our part to address the immense issues facing our planet today. Through our goals, partnerships and new initiatives, we're moving faster on environmental sustainability with more ambition than ever before.
Nearly every part of our business has an impact on the environment. By focusing our efforts on three key impact areas, we hope to make meaningful progress on the most critical topics. And because these issues require bold action that's only possible with cooperation and collaboration, we're continuing to partner with our customers, across our industry and with leading experts.

We recognize that every aspect of our business affects the environment, and we're actively working to reduce our impact and be as environmentally friendly as possible. We're continually working to use energy, water and other natural resources more efficiently in our stores and in our manufacturing and shipping supply chain. We've committed to sustainable, eco-friendly packaging and use only recyclable bags and boxes made with recycled content. We've created a complete online selection, Sustainable Style, that showcases sustainable products made from sustainably sourced materials or manufactured in factories that meet higher environmental standards. We've also committed to serving sustainably produced, local and organic foods and beverages in our restaurants, and all of our coffees are ethically sourced from farms that are protecting the environment and supporting sustainable production. We also offer a clothing-donation program so our customers can easily donate their clothing when it's no longer useful to them, thereby keeping it out of landfills.
