Whole Foods Market

Mid Atlantic Green Mission Specialist

Mark Smallwood is currently the Mid Atlantic Green Mission Specialist for Whole Foods Market. He is responsible for improving the environmental footprint of 30 stores in 6 states, a large commissary, a distribution center and a seafood facility totally over 1.5 million square feet. Mark’s current projects include diverting waste from the landfills, reducing packaging, and energy efficiency to name a few.

Mark was an organic farmer before joining Whole Foods. He raised chickens, goats, pigs, sheep and had a 3 acre market garden. He drove a team of oxen instead of a tractor resulting in the use of only 42 gallons of gas for an entire year on the farm. Also, while farming, Mark worked as a consultant to small businesses helping them to “Go Green.”

Mark is also a former Public School educator and Head Coach.
