Walmart has unveiled a range of initiatives aimed at reducing packaging waste associated with online orders. These measures include transitioning from plastic to recyclable paper bag mailers, using technology to create right-sized packaging, allowing customers to consolidate shipping, and removing single-use plastic bags for online pickup orders. The switch to paper bag mailers alone is predicted to eliminate over 2,000 tons of plastic in the US by the end of the current fiscal year. Walmart is also using applied AI to determine when an item can be fulfilled from stores instead of fulfillment centers, which reduces both the number of miles driven and boxes used for shipping. All of these efforts reflect Walmart’s commitment to becoming a more regenerative company that prioritizes social and environmental issues that are relevant to its business.
