ONE of Britain’s most environmentally-friendly stores has opened in Sheffield.
The new Marks and Spencer Simply Food shop on Ecclesall Road features a ‘green wall’ of plants to encourage wildlife and electric car charging points. It is the first in the UK to use LED lighting and sun pipes to bring in natural light and reduce carbon emissions by almost a quarter. It will collect rainwater to cut water costs by 40 per cent.
Chief executive Marc Bolland said: “We’re delighted to be opening M&S’ greenest ever store, providing customers with food and drinks in such a convenient location.”
