Walmart To Reduce Plastic Packaging Waste

(UNDATED) – Walmart announced a major initiative this week to reduce plastic packaging waste.

The move is designed to help get to the heart of the problem by focusing on the retailer’s private brand packaging, building upon existing efforts to reduce plastic waste in Walmart and Sam’s Club operations, and encouraging national brand suppliers to set similar packaging goals.
At the supplier forum, Walmart executives highlighted that the company is working with suppliers to expand efforts to improve the sustainability of its private brand product packaging, with an emphasis on increasing recyclability and making it easier for customers to recycle.
