Coppell, Texas — The Container Store, leading specialty retailer of storage and organization solutions and custom closets, has joined the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership. The Container Store is using more than 57 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power annually, which is enough green power to meet 100% of the organization’s electricity use. By choosing green power, The Container Store is helping lead the transition to a cleaner energy future.
As part of The Container Store’s commitment and effort, all of its stores, distribution centers and corporate office power is offset by an investment in 100% renewable energy, powered by one of the cleanest power sources: wind.
“The Container Store is passionate about the environment and is fully committed to reducing the overall footprint of our operations,” says Satish Malhotra, president and CEO. “We are proud to join the EPA’s Green Power Partnership. Using green power helps further reduce our organization’s emissions footprint.”
By joining the voluntary green power market, The Container Store and other Green Power Partners are helping to reduce the negative health impacts of air emissions on people and the environment.
According to the U.S. EPA, The Container Store’s green power use is equivalent to the electricity use of more than 5,000 average American homes annually.
