Saving the Planet One Step at a Time

Happy Earth Day Week! Stewart's Shops is always looking for sustainable ways to protect our planet. This year alone, we have 6 EV charging stations planned for our shops across New York state. Every day, we look to reduce waste and reuse where possible.

We are all in this together!

  • 6 tons of cardboard are recycled every single day
  • Stewart's Shops manufacturing plant has 2,400 individual solar panels on its rooftop. This is the environmental equivalent of taking 80 cars off the road each year, learn more here
  • Stewart's offsets 75% of the power of 17 locations with an offsite solar location in Halfmoon, NY
  • Our new shops and remodeled shops all feature LED lighting
  • To avoid waste, reusable plastic containers including totes, dairy cases, ice cream baskets and bread trays are used
  • We sell a large variety of travel mugs and we encourage their use. Customers can fill their travel mugs for only $1.20/ cup
  • Reusable shopping bags are available in all our shops for .99 cents and we have insulated reusable bags for $2.59
  • We offer plant-based straws. These straws are made from corn and are 100% renewable, BPI certified compostable and they are ASTM compliant. In a composting environment, these straws will completely degrade in less than six months.
  • We offer three Tesla Supercharging stations, one at Chestertown shop off exit 25 on I-87, just south of Lake Placid. one in Clinton Corners shop, located on the Taconic Parkway, just north of Poughkeepsie, NY and one in Rutland, VT.
