I’d be the first person to tell you that the green movement isn’t where it was a few years ago. “Eco-friendly” this and “organic” that was once on the forefront of many people’s minds, but the conversations have shifted a bit. I’d like to think it’s because so many people are now aware of the need for sustainability that it’s become a habit that they don’t talk about often (that’s definitely the case for my family). Still, for some people, the relative quiet nature of sustainability makes it somewhat invisible.
Walmart is working to change that.
For several years now, the company has been actively working toward making the entire operation more sustainable, and a big part of that has been a push to get the companies that supply their products to do the same via their Sustainability Index. To find the companies that are acting on that push, look no further than the Walmart Sustainability Leaders Shop.
When you’re shopping at Walmart.com, this page makes it easier to find products made by companies that have scored as “best in class” in the Walmart Sustainability Index. Here’s a quick video that better explains the way it works.
Long story short, while you’re shopping at Walmart.com, look for products with this badge:
There are more than 10,000 products available that are made by companies that meet the sustainability standards, and the badge makes it easier to find them. Plus, this is Walmart, so the prices will be affordable.
I’m really excited about this new badge, because I’m the type of shopper who looks for this type of information about the products I buy, especially online. I want to know if it’s organic, or recycled, or at least made by a company that is makingÂ sustainability goals a priority, and actually achieving them.
What about you? Do you look for eco-friendly products when you’re shopping online? Will the badge help make that easier?
