Walmart to Provide "eco rating" for its Products

Walmart is looking to provide consumers with eco information about the products offered in stores so they can make informed decisions and shop greener.

" ... will ask its suppliers to provide environmental information on all products carried in its stores ... use that information to label each item with an eco rating, designed to measure its environmental friendliness."

"... change how we make and sell products ... make consumption itself smarter and sustainable."

" ... latest effort by Wal-Mart to create a greener landscape .. already strived to make its own stores environmentally friendly ... an effort to create more sustainable electronics devices to reduce the amount of items dumped into landfills.
