AMWAY: Giving Tuesday and #Powerof5

Giving Tuesday is a global day dedicated to generosity and giving back.

In recent days you’ve heard all about Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday.

But we want to highlight another significant day: Giving Tuesday. Founded in 2012 through a partnership between the 92nd Street Y in New York City and the United Nations Foundation, Giving Tuesday is a global day dedicated to generosity and giving back.

Safeway on Track to Achieve 2015 Seafood Sustainability Goal


Safeway’s seafood team has made great headway in ensuring our seafood comes from responsible producers. Here are the highlights from the program:

What’s the goal? All of Safeway’s fresh and frozen seafood will be responsibly sourced and traceable or in a time-bound improvements process by the end of 2015.

How close are we now?  Current data indicates that 70% of Safeway’s fresh and frozen seafood is responsibly sourced, up from 51% at the end of 2013.

Safeway Surpasses Sustainable Palm Oil Goal Early


Safeway surpassed our goal to source 1 million pounds of responsibly produced palm oil in 2014 by sourcing over 2.6 million pounds of responsible palm oil as of October 1st. We also set a new goal for 2015.

The oil squeezed out of oil palm fruit is used in many different products and it comes from oil palm plantations based in tropical countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia and Nigeria. Some palm oil production has been linked to deforestation, wetland destruction and human rights violations, such as child labor and human trafficking.
