We, the undersigned, urge Walmart to commit to phasing out single-use plastic packaging.
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. Too often, this plastic packaging ends up as waste, clogging landfills and polluting the environment.
Nothing we use for a few minutes should pollute our environment and threaten wildlife for hundreds of years. Walmart can help spare birds, fish, and other wildlife from the harm caused by plastic by changing its packaging practices. In eliminating single-use plastic packaging, Walmart can become a leader in the industry and set a positive precedent for other superstores to follow.
