We want to thank the supermarkets taking action to address the climate crisis!
The U.S. supermarket sector has lagged behind other developed countries in cooling without super pollutant HFCs and the average supermarket leaks out a quarter of its refrigerant each year! Some supermarkets are using sustainable HFC-free alternatives, but there are still many areas without climate-friendly options. You can ask the companies on the Climate-Friendly Supermarkets map to Cool it for the climate by adding more HFC-free stores in your area.
At a time when supermarkets are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 health crisis, Environmental Investigation Agency and Green America are teaming up to express gratitude to the brave workers providing critical services and thank these supermarkets for acting on the climate crisis.
Encourage these companies to build on their progress by asking for a climate-friendly store near you!
Subject: Thank you for using climate-friendly refrigerants!
I am writing today to thank you for having climate-friendly supermarkets that use HFC-free cooling. We need urgent, ambitious action on the climate crisis and it’s vital that companies reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
Unfortunately, there are no climate-friendly stores near me that are HFC-free. I hope your company will expand the climate-friendly options in my area by converting more locations to be HFC-free and adding more stores to the climate-friendly supermarkets map. Your continued actions can help ensure that all customers have access to a climate-friendly store!
I also want to express deep gratitude to the supermarket workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis. They are providing communities with a critical service and I hope they are being protected with ample safeguards at this dangerous time. It means a great deal that your company is navigating this health crisis and has also worked to reduce emissions which escalate the climate crisis.
Thank you for your essential work and protecting our climate.
