Plastic Waste – Walmart to Reduce Its Virgin Plastic Footprint

An October 6, 2021 Walmart news release reports that the company has “… set a goal to become a regenerative company—one that places nature and humanity at the center of our business … By 2025, we aim to achieve a 15% absolute reduction of our virgin plastic footprint. Our virgin plastic footprint includes any plastic that is produced from new materials, rather than recycled ones. We’ll aim to do this by reducing the amount of plastic used altogether, as well as replacing with recycled content and reusing materials. This goal is part of our work with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation to shift to a circular economy—and is in addition to our existing target to achieve 100% recyclable, reusable or industrially compostable private-brand packaging by 2025 …” #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic #CircularEconomy @Walmart
