Walmart CEO Doug McMillon:
We, the undersigned, urge Walmart to commit to taking single-use plastic packaging off store shelves, especially in the grocery section.
Walmart is America’s largest grocer by revenue — but far too many shoppers are coming home with a pile of single-use plastic packaging that they didn’t ask for, which can clog our landfills and pollute our environment for centuries to come.
Nothing we use for a few minutes should threaten our communities and our planet for hundreds of years. Walmart can reduce its plastic waste and even set a precedent for other superstores to follow by eliminating single-use plastic packaging.
