27 Mar: Best Buy and the circular economy

In a world of finite resources, Best Buy is working on ways to do business where nothing is wasted.  

From investing in renewable energy to reducing waste in our operations and offering products that help our customers live more sustainably, we’re prioritizing the circular economy. It’s a system that promotes using fewer new natural resources, keeping products and materials in use as long as possible and finding alternatives to throwing them away.  

“The shift to a circular economy has challenges, especially because it requires innovation and exploring new ways to create and use products,” said Tim Dunn, Best Buy’s head of environmental sustainability.

For us that also means keeping products and materials in use as long as possible and finding alternatives to throwing them away. Through programs including Geek Squad repair or our haul-away services, we make it easy to give tech a second life and out of landfills.

03 Jan: Best Buy brothers run Minneapolis vintage apparel store

Brothers Luis and Salvador Salado-Herrera balance full-time Best Buy careers with running their own vintage streetwear store with their younger brother, Daniel.
