Toys R Us Includes Environmental Features in 44 Stores

Toys R Us has announced that 21 new stores and 23 remodeled locations, all opening this year, will boast a range of environmental features.

The world’s leading dedicated toy and children’s products retailer, which currently has 874 Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores in the U.S., said sustainability features will include:

  • An energy management system that monitors environmental conditions and adjusts temperature, lighting and CO2 levels throughout the store, to use natural light and reduce energy consumption
  • A custom daylight harvesting system, which includes a number of design components, such as skylights, cutting-edge dimmable fixtures and lighting sensors that reduce up to 50 percent of electric lighting energy used during the day
  • Energy-efficient LED fixtures in outdoor signage, instead of fluorescents
  • Low-flow water closets and urinals, and automatic faucets and flush valves
  • Automatic hand dryers that use 80 percent less energy than standard hand dryers while eliminating the need for paper towel products
  • Cardboard balers that facilitate recycling
  • Low volatile organic compound (VOC) paint and floor adhesives
  • A vestibule entryway system that reduces the amount of outside contaminants being tracked into the store interior
  • White reflective roof that significantly reduces the amount of heat absorbed by the building.

  1. So if their new buildings are really environmentaly friendly, why aren’t they certifying the buildings? After all, the measures mentioned are simply best management practices to save money. Saying it and validating it are two different things.
