Outpost offsets our energy with clean energy credits sourced in Wisconsin by RePowerNOW.
Water is a necessity for life, but plastic bottles are a scourge of modern life. Using our in-store water machines has saved a lot of plastic bottles.
We always have! Clean, unadulterated, wholesome foods; you may be surprised at how much we offer.
As a grocer we get a LOT of cardboard in and we produce food waste. Thankfully we RECYCLE all that cardboard in bales and compost our pre-consumer food waste, keeping these things out of the landfill.
We are committed to using "green" design and environmentally safe materials in our stores whenever possible.
We believe food tastes better when it's grown close to home!
