Wal-mart, the world's largest retail, is reaffirming their commitment toward sustainable packaging by applying a scorecard when the buyers are making a purchasing decision. Is this goodbye to packing peanuts?
Finishing the trial phase in 2007, Wal-mart hopes to not only roll back prices, but roll back packaging 5% by 2013.
Implications - Environmental concerns are becoming increasingly important to today's consumer, especially with the amount of attention given to the environment in the media. As such, any company that gives people the chance to feel that they are doing their part for the environment while also making the process convenient and user-friendly will earn their appreciation in the long run.
