Walmart is the biggest retailer in the USA and so when this giant moves to much more sustainable packaging it makes a big difference.
"The nation's largest retailer will roll out changes to eliminate waste across its business, it said Thursday. Walmart will swap plastic mailers for paper ones that can be recycled curbside.
It will add made-to-fit technology in about half of its fulfillment centers, so each shipped box uses less material and more boxes can fit on each truckload. And by the end of the year, customers at all of its stores will be able to choose to skip plastic bags when retrieving curbside pickup orders."
This is progress on a large scale. Please sign this petition of encouragement. Let's get them to do more.
