Now I’m not a loyal Wal-Mart shopper, we usually prefer our local Target store. However, I had to pick up a few things today and it was closer to my location. I have heard many stories about how Wal-Mart is really trying to make a name for themselves in the greening of their operations but I never really read up on it. During my visit today I noticed something that impressed me. I had to get some frozen waffles (that my son loves so much) and while I was walking down the frozen food aisle it happened, the lights in the displays came on as I passed by and went back off as I passed. At first I thought there was something wrong then I started thinking about the environment. These displays are actually on motion sensor lighting so they don’t waste electricity if no one is in the aisle. Now I know that’s only one small step but if you go to the Wal-Mart website there is more. It seems like they really are taking the initiative to become a more environmentally friendly store and lessen their overall impact. Who knows…I might start shopping there more often.
