Walmart Canada Makes Milestone Commitment to Plastic Waste Reduction

4 Feb 2019

Walmart Canada announces the Walmart Canada Charter on Plastics, a milestone commitment to reduce plastic waste across its operations.

The announcement builds on Walmart Inc.’s 2016 commitment to have 100 per cent recyclable private brand packaging by 2025. “Reducing unnecessary plastic waste and increasing plastic recycling are key priorities for Walmart – and for our customers,” said Lee Tappenden, president and CEO, Walmart Canada. “As the world’s largest retailer and producer of private brand products, we want to use our size and scale to take a leadership role in reducing plastic waste in Canada.”
