MOM’s rec­og­nized as al­liance gold mem­ber

Maryland Independent - - Business -

The Al­liance for the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay has rec­og­nized MOM’s Or­ganic Mar­ket as a Busi­nesses for the Bay Gold Mem­ber. MOM’s Or­ganic Mar­ket, with a lo­ca­tion in Wal­dorf, joins a grow­ing part­ner­ship of large and small busi­nesses in the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay wa­ter­shed that are un­der­tak­ing vol­un­tary ac­tions to im­prove the health of the bay and its wa­ter­shed, rivers and streams, ac­cord­ing to an al­liance press re­lease.

MOM’s Or­ganic Mar­ket has been in busi­ness for nearly three decades and em­ploys al­most 1,000 peo­ple in the re­gion.

MOM’s Busi­nesses for the Bay pro­gram fo­cuses on en­gag­ing com­mu­ni­ties, lo­cal habi­tat restora­tion and pro­mot­ing green ini­tia­tives. Each lo­ca­tion adopts a lo­cal park, high­way or stream, ap­points an en­vi­ron­men­tal restora­tion cap­tain to train staff and ex­e­cute sus­tain­abil­ity goals, and hosts sev­eral events and cam­paigns through­out the year, in­clud­ing ed­u­ca­tional sig­nage in the stores.

Along with its 100 per­cent green power sta­tus and pro­mo­tion of elec­tric ve­hi­cles, MOM’s do­nates over $500,000 each year to en­vi­ron­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tions, in­clud­ing the Al­liance for the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay’s Project Clean Stream.

Busi­nesses for the Bay pro­vides a net­work for its mem­bers to share strate­gies and suc­cesses with other mem­bers and part­ners, and re­ceive recog­ni­tion for the valu­able role each takes to help im­prove the en­vi­ron­ment.

Con­fer­ring Gold Mem­ber sta­tus is a way for the al­liance to rec­og­nize MOM’s com­mit­ment to Ch­e­sa­peake Bay pro­tec­tion and restora­tion.
