Walmart Works With Worldwise To Recycle Waste Materials Into Green Pet Products

October 7, 2010: 01:21 AM EST

Walmart is launching a program with green pet products maker Worldwise, Inc., that will turn Walmart’s salvageable waste materials – including plastic bottles, bags, cardboard, and hangers – into pet products sold in Walmart stores. Recycled products that will hit the shelves this month include dog beds made from bottles, cat scratchers from cardboard and litter pans from hangers. Walmart’s sustainability goals include a commitment to “creating zero waste,” according to a senior executive, and “the closed loop partnership with Worldwise is a perfect example of how retailers and suppliers can cooperate to innovate and achieve greater sustainability.” Worldwise says its efforts will keep the equivalent of more than 100 million 16.9 oz. plastic bottles out of landfills, about 25 million of which will come from Walmart and Sam's Clubs.
