Wal-Mart Partnership

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.

Hmm...I'm eager to read future blog postings on this topic. Sure, Wal-Mart is trying to be greener, but trying to diminish its environmental footprint won't diminish the huge effect it has on wages and land use. In my book, the reasons NOT to shop at Wal-Mart are far more compelling than the arguments for shopping there.
