The City Bakery (located near the Flatiron Building in NYC) has a new program that encourages its employees to be environmentally conscious, while also educating customers about its “eco-footprint.” Staff members wear a badge advertising their personal eco-footprints—the more planets on the badge, the smaller the employee’s footprint. When customers ask about the badges, staffers share tips for saving energy. The City Bakery also sources local ingredients and has converted to 100 percent wind power.
