• Sprouts Farmers Market in Round Rock, Texas, has earned the EPA’s GreenChill Gold-Level Store Award for green refrigeration technology.   According to the announcement, “The Round Rock location is the first in Texas and one of just 13 grocers in the nation to achieve gold certification from the GreenChill Advanced Refrigeration Partnership, a voluntary business-government program managed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The partnership’s chief goal is to reduce emissions of refrigerants that damage the Earth’s protective ozone layer and contribute to global warming.”
