Now, I know a lot of people have beef with them. I'm not sure why still, but I like them. They employ a lot of people, offer stuff cheaply, and they let people have babies there [[well, they did in a movie once]].
Now on top of that, Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce [[WMC]] gave Wal-Mart a first place "Business Friend of the Environment" Award. According to the article,
"WMC’s judges recognized Wal-Mart for new energy-saving store designs for the giant retailer’s Wisconsin-based Supercenter stores, according to a WMC spokesperson. The Supercenter stores include patented waste-recycling systems, LED and computer-controlled lighting systems and water-saving technologies.It's exciting to see businesses become more aware and environmentally conscious, even if it is for financial benefit-- especially when you see big businesses try to make a difference. So... go Wal-Mart!
Nelson said Wal-Mart’s corporate sustainability goals are to use 100 percent renewable energy, produce zero net waste and sell products that sustain the nation’s resources and environment."
