Last Friday I noted Grist’s takedown of Walmart’s latest attempt to greenwash products with a faux environmental Sustainability Leaders label. This week the story is gathering legs: Wal-Mart recently rolled out a new public relations scheme to improve their public image, and make people think that they care about the environment. Unfortunately, as Stacy Mitchell […]

A standard is not a standard simply because the world’s largest pusher of cheap plastic crap from China says so, and given the Bentonvile Behemoth’s issues with monitoring vendors’ standards involving health and saftey, I’m less than enthusiastic about Walmart’s green made by sustainability leaders tag, and just what do those words really mean anyway?

I really didn’t have the energy to blog about this over the last 24 hours. Lucky for us, Marion Nestle has taken care of it.

Walmart is for the environment…

Monday, August 30th, 2010

…except when it hinders their ability to pave California into a bigger parking lot than it already is. The hypocrisy is staggering, and shame on every environmentalist out there who continues to suffer from Walmart Compartmentalization Syndrome.

Regulation now. Regulation tomorrow. Regulation forever.

Yes, “The Case Against Corporate Social Responsibility,” as it appeared in yesterday’s WSJ doesn’t mention Walmart by name. Indeed, it doesn’t mention any company by name, but with all the hub hub about Walmart’s public image makeover, you can’t help but assume the author has Walmart in mind when he writes stuff like this: Large […]

Wouldn’t a truly green company try to do the same thing?

While goofing around looking for something else I ran into the British retailer Tesco’s statement on its carbon footprint – it’s entire carbon footprint. Here’s the takeaway: The direct carbon footprint for the Tesco Group during the financial year to February 2007 was 4.13m tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e)*. Our UK business emitted 2.25m […]

I realize that the economic allusion is wrong, but reading Andrew Winston’s piece about how fecking big Walmart is made me think about all our discussions since 2008 about businesses too big to fail? What could make Walmart collapse? From Huffington Post: The 2010 Fortune 500 list just came out and I’m completely blown away […]

“Fresh” (the movie).

Friday, May 7th, 2010

I went to Colorado Springs last night to see “Fresh” (the movie). It has some similarities and interview subjects in common with the previously mentioned “Food, Inc.,” but unlike that otherwise excellent movie this one doesn’t suck up to Walmart. “Fresh” is an unrelenting attack on industrialized agriculture. It doesn’t matter if you put signs […]

A sense of proportion.

From The Story of Stuff, by Annie Leonard (p. 124, footnotes omitted): “[I]t’s hard to take Wal-Mart seriously when it broadcasts its commitment to sustainability. Yes, Wal-Mart has made some real environmental improvements in its operations.
