2020 March Sustainable Champion – Valente’s Italian Specialties

Valente’s Italian Specialties is committed to remaining cognizant of its impact on the environment and minimizing its footprint on it.   They are a member of the NJ Sustainable Business Registry.

Valente’s participates in Shop Haddonfield’s Property Tax Card program. Participating shoppers receive a property tax credit awarded to them totaling 7.5% of the price of each sale.

Valente’s works with local farmers to support the community and minimize travel.  They source many items from local vendors within a 20-mile radius of their store. In the first four months, they have saved over 4,000 miles in travel related expenses.

They also work to minimize food waste through a number of composting and reuse programs.

Marcello is a member of Sustainable Haddonfield, which works in conjunction with the Haddonfield Environmental Commission to encourage sustainable use of the community’s natural, human, and economic resources.

We are proud to recognize Valente’s Italian Specialties as our Camden County Sustainability Champion for the month of March.
