WalMart is going Eco-Friendly
There are changing light bulbs to reduce energy and their fish buying will be from 'sustaible' fisheries, etc., etc.
Wally World is changing - what a great thing! or is hell freezing over? The article stated that the Wal stands out to make more money on this initiative (maybe why their board approved it. ) A good thing, as a good friend pointed out is maybe organic food prices will start to come down so he won't have to spend $16 for salad.
Also the recent spin of generic drugs the Wal just started marketing, yep its good for our seniors and the drug companies should be doing this anyway (why do they advertise perscription durgs? but that's another rant), but it will put the indpendent pharmacies out of business.
I hope this isn't another flash in the pan advertisement gimick like their "Made In The USA" campaign in the early/mid 1990s. Go into any SprawlMart today and make a game to find anything made in the USA.
However, I don't see their development practices changing that much - and that won't capture John Q. Public's attention like cheaper generic drugs, recycling and buying practices.
