Raley’s making effort to save water & energy

Raley’s Family of Fine Stores is rolling out a new cleaning and sanitation program, whose aim is to save approximately 4 million gallons of water and lower energy consumption by 7.5 million kilowatts, saving 100 tons in shipping and reducing labor by more than 23,000 hours a year.

The project’s implementation began at the end of last year. It will be complete in all stores by the end of next month.
