Corporate Citizenship

BI-LO recognizes our role as a responsible member of the communities we serve. We strive to support the people in our communities both through charitable works as well as through our responsible business practices.

Charitable Contributions

BI-LO works hard to give back to our local communities through our charitable organization, BI-LO Charities Inc. BI-LO Charities partners with non-profit organizations throughout the Southeast on fundraising efforts to improve education, feed the hungry and enhance the lives of children.

Eco-Friendly Efforts

At BI-LO, we’re doing our part to minimize our carbon footprint and help protect the environment. Some of our green efforts include:

  • Reusable shopping bags ($0.99 each) and use of 100% recycled paper and partially recycled plastic in our free shopping bags. We also feature in-store paper and plastic recycling centers for bags.
  • Plastic and pallet wrap recycling and vendor program partnerships to reduce plastic consumption by more than 1 million pounds a year.
  • Recycling of more than 30,000 tons of cardboard a year.
  • Recycling of cell phones, fluorescent lamps, fryer oils, fats and bones.
  • Energy-efficient lighting, heating and cooling systems in our stores and warehouses.
  • Online hiring and application system, eliminating most paper and toner used for new hire forms.
  • Wide variety of organic, natural and eco-friendly products, including Full Circle, our BI-LO brand of organic products.
  • Locally grown produce requiring less energy to bring to market.
  • Many convenient in-store services (DVD rentals, floral shop, photo processing, ticket sales, etc.) reducing our customers’ gas consumption and carbon emissions.
