Safeway Stores First to be LEED Certified (Photo)

Safeway’s new Bethesda and Olney stores this year became LEED Gold certified, making them the first grocery stores in Maryland to earn that designation for being built using environmentally friendly strategies. Among the features in the Bethesda store are artistic glass windows accented with recycled glass recovered from the original Safeway built on that location in 1956. On July 9, Montgomery County Councilmembers Valerie Ervin (left) and Nancy Floreen presented a proclamation on behalf of the Council to Greg Ten Eyck, the director of public affairs and government relations for Safeway, thanking the company for keeping with the county’s environmentally conscious initiatives.
