Sustainability In Action: Alphabet City Wine Company sells some organic wines and already uses an eco-friendly floor cleaner. In addition, they use reusable rags, towels, and sponges for cleaning. They switched over to Green Mountain Energy, a renewable energy provider. They use a door closer and door sweep to maintain indoor air temperature and they recycle metal, glass, plastic and cardboard.
Sustainability Goals: Alphabet City Wine Company is looking forward to increasing the percentage of organic wines that they sell. They also plan on switching over to all eco-friendly cleaners and bathroom supplies. They are going to start using a reusable towel for the employee bathroom instead of paper towels and a reusable microfiber cloth for window and mirror cleaning. They plan on installing a water displacer in their toilet and changing their bags to 100% post consumer recycled bags.
