7 Eleven / 7 & iHoldings

Perhaps the worst name for a convenience store ever. But it turns out that this particular chain of convenience stores has decided to start recycling its food waste. Check it!


Convenience Store Chain Establishing a System to Recycle 100% of its Unsold Food


Seven & i Holdings Co., the parent company of the major convenience store chain Seven-Eleven Japan Co., started turning its food waste into animal feed on September 1, 2007, in cooperation with Agri Gaia System Co., a company specializing in food recycling. By the end of July 2007, Seven & i Holdings had already implemented the system of composting food waste from about 1,600 stores, or about 14 percent of all its stores.
