In 2008, Walmart committed to reduce the weight of its global plastic shopping bag waste at its stores around the world by an average of 33 percent per store.

This commitment could eliminate:

  • Approximately 135 million pounds of plastic shopping bag waste globally
  • Avoid the production of approximately 290,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases
  • Prevent consuming the equivalent of 678,000 barrels of oil every year
