Through partnerships, smart business decisions and by helping our customers reduce their impact, Future Shop is dedicated to continuing to improve how we reduce our environmental impact. Here are a few examples of what we are doing.

Keeping electronics out of landfills.

Every day – at all of our stores – we invite customers to return batteries, cell phones, MP3 players, CDs and CD players for recycling. As provincial recycling bodies enhance recycling programs, our local stores adapt to take back electronics like computers, TVs and other electronic items.

Saved energy with smart technology.

Future Shop installs Energy Management systems all our stores. These systems control heat and lighting to reduce the overall power consumed. By running our stores more efficiently we save enough energy to power 1300 homes for a year!

Did you know by just unplugging electronics in your home you could save 20% on your energy bills?

Going electronic to reduce 260,000 pay stubs from travelling across Canada.

With 10,000 employees across Canada, Future Shop was mailing and couriering thousands of paystubs across the country every month. Now we send these biweekly letters through ePost – an online service provided free from Canada Post, sparing hundreds of trees and preventing thousands of pounds of emissions each year.

Recycling millions of pounds of cardboard and paper each year.

Each of our stores and our head office recycles paper and cardboard which in turn saves thousands of trees from being harvested each year. Recycled paper in turn requires 60% less energy to produce than virgin paper.

Join us and recycle in your home and office.

Working towards Zero-Waste at Head Office.

Our head office is working on an aggressive waste reduction initiative that included the introduction of communal recycling, composting and waste bins around the building to encourage staff to recycle. Since this initiative began, 1/3 of head office employees have given up their personal garbage cans in favour of communal recycling, and 85% of all waste leaving the building is recycled.

We want to hear what you think. Join the discussion.
