Tomorrow, NC DPPEA and local recycling coordinators will be meeting with a number of the state’s Wal-Mart store managers. Say what you want about Wal-Mart and their new environmental ads Wal-Mart’s reach is great. From their employees to their costumers - a partnership with Wal-Mart in NC could mean improved recycling participation via a number of educational methods.
-I hope Can Guy (one of the Recycle Guys mascots) will one day be a Wal-Mart Greeter.
-I hope more Wal-Mart employees make recycling one of their personal sustainability projects.
-I hope you will see more recycled content products displayed in Wal-Mart stores on America Recycles Day.
Check back for progress on this project.
