Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer and thus the world's largest seller of game stations, wants toy manufacturers to be more green.

As a result, the big players in gaming were summoned to rural Arkansas and given the instruction. Be more green in your manufacturing, shipping, and packaging.

They invited a rep from the Natural Resources Defense Council to assist. Not only was packaging a major topic but water consumed, power used, and gas emitted.

Implications - The numbers are astounding: 101 million games in plastic cases sold last year along which is the equivalent green gas emissions to over 9,000 automobiles. Finding ways to repurpose this plastic is a must.
