Planet Organic

Planet Organic

Never heard of these guys. The have locations out West, out East but don't seem to have much going on in between, unfortunately. Appreciate the effort here though...

PLANET ORGANIC MARKETS (a division of Planet Organic Health Corp (TSX-V, POH)), Canada’s leading natural and organic supermarket chain, has become a part of the growing number of businesses harnessing wind power. In an effort to ramp up its environmental efforts, the company has purchased wind power for all their computers.

Planet Organic Markets has signed an agreement to buy electricity from the Pembina Institute, a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to sustainable energy solutions. The bulk purchase for 24- Megawatt hours of wind energy is equivalent to 24 tonnes of CO2 emissions. This is equal to taking 20 average cars off the road for an entire year!

In addition to that, the "healthy recipes" link at the top left seems interesting. I'll have to give it a longer look the next time I'm trying to think of a meal to botch.
