At VF Outdoor, Sustainable Landscaping Is a Good Fit

The office campus of VF Outdoor in Alameda features a sustainable landscape design that reflects the company's global environmental goals. The landscape includes a water-conserving and climate-responsive plant palette suited to the environmentally sensitive coastal setting, an edible garden that provides healthy food to the campus cafeteria, and a variety of outdoor spaces for meetings, relaxation and recreation.

VF Outdoor, Inc.

VF Outdoor, a division of VF Corp. that focuses on outdoor and athletic apparel, recently moved three of its leading brands, JanSport, lucy and The North Face, to a new headquarters in Alameda.  While moving more than 470 employees, the company avoided using an estimated 11,000 cardboard boxes needed for the move by renting reusable moving crates instead. Comparable in cost to traditional cardboard moving boxes, this solution also required significantly less labor. This commitment to reducing waste is also part of the ongoing operations at the Alameda campus.

South Shore Center

South Shore Center is a 594,000 square-foot open-air shopping mall located in Alameda, California. Commercial tenants share several waste stations located throughout the mall. Starting in 2011, South Shore Center has worked with its tenants, garbage hauler and StopWaste to increase recycling and introduce the collection of food scraps and other compostable materials, especially at the mall’s many food service businesses.
