Walmart Joins Worldwide Effort To Reduce Its Plastic Consumption
from By Scott E. Rupp
The war on plastic continues. In April, the Oregon Senate approved a limited ban on plastic straws. Its passage would make the state the second after California to enact measures limiting single-use plastic straws. Several individual cities, including Seattle; New York City; and Portland, Oregon, have also implemented their own policies to curb plastic straw usage. Not to be outdone, retail giant Walmart announced a "bold" plastic waste reduction commitment. In addition to reducing plastic packaging, it is doing away with plastic bags.
