Menards has announced it is eliminating refrigerated delivery trucks from its fleet.
The company has also announced it will stop using refrigerated water filtration, saying it is becoming less cost-effective and more time-consuming to operate.
The company said it will transition to a new refrigerated container fleet.
“Menards is committed to moving forward with this change to improve its overall performance and reduce its overall carbon footprint,” said Menards senior vice president of sustainability and operations, Mike Stearns.
The move to stop refrigerated deliveries comes amid a global trend to move to renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power, with the US and China taking the lead in both countries.
