The Publix GreenWise Market is certified by Quality Certification Services (QCS). Also, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification has been applied for with the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). The store has taken steps to reduce energy consumption by utilizing skylights throughout the store and a light sensoring system that monitors daylight entering into the store and adjusts fluorescent lighting accordingly. To reduce the store’s ozone depleting substances, the Publix GreenWise Market uses environmentally-friendly secondary coolant systems and refrigerants throughout the store. LED lighting is used in refrigerated cases, coolers and freezers. The roof includes a soy-based coating that is highly reflective and reduces air conditioning loads. Renewable resources were used whenever possible, including bamboo in sales fixtures. A composting effort is also being conducted with Florida Atlantic University.

“Publix GreenWise Market was created to meet the needs of our customers who are seeking a healthier lifestyle for their families without sacrificing the occasional indulgence,” said Maria Brous, Publix director of media and community relations. “We recognize that our customers have become more food and environmentally savvy and want to explore these options in one convenient location.”

To assist customers in distinguishing organic, all-natural and conventional items, Publix GreenWise Market has introduced a color-coded shelf tag system.

  • Brown tags without icon indicates an all-natural product.
  • A brown tag with the USDA Organic icon indicates a 95 – 100 percent organic product.
  • A brown tag with the phrase, “Made with Organic Ingredients,” indicates a product contains 70 – 94 percent organic ingredients.
  • A white tag indicates a conventional supermarket item.

Three additional Publix GreenWise Markets in Florida are currently planned for 2008 respectively:

  • Boca Raton – 21230 Saint Andrews Blvd.
  • Vero Beach – 526 21st St. 
  • Tampa – northeast corner of Armenia & Azeele streets
