How to Help Get  More Sustainable and Recycled Products  into Walmart?

Help get more sustainable and recycled content products into Walmart.

Green consumer demand can be a powerful force for change.

You’d be surprised how much good we can accomplish by harnessing the

power of the “big green purse”.

“According to BigGreenPurse.comthe more money you spend on green

products, the more you encourage manufacturers to reduce pollution, save

energy and water, use less packaging and protect natural areas.”

But, how many times have you gone to one of your favorite mass market retailers

or discount department stores hoping to find ethically-produced, sustainable

or recycled content products and left empty-handed?

Let’s face it, I’m at all not surprised about that…

But what did you do about it?

Did you voice your concerns to a supervisor?

• Did you add your request for more eco friendly products to their

suggestion box?

• Did you write a letter to management stating your case along with

ecofriendly product suggestions?

• Did you rally  eco conscious moms, neighbors and friends in your

community and organize a petition drive?

“Increasing consumer access to safe, non-toxic, ecofriendly and

sustainable products is good for our health and the environment.

But we can’t always find the products we need when we need them.

Fortunately, products made from sustainable and recycled content

are becoming more and more important to eco-conscious consumers

and businesses alike.

And retailers like Walmart and Sam’s Club are listening.”

But action speaks louder than words.

The Big Eco Pitch to Walmart

On October 2, 2013, carefully-selected manufacturers/suppliers of sustainable and

recycled content products will be given the opportunity to showcase their unique

and innovative products to Walmart’s buyers and sustainability team at the

Sam’s Club Headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas.

In preparation for this rare and exclusive event, Quest is searching for the most

innovative sustainable products and products made from recycled content.

Consider this:

“Did you ever think the denim you are wearing this instant

could possibly be reused as insulation in the walls of your

home or office?

From cars to floors, or even handbags, the rubber in tires can have a

second life in a variety of ways. It’s true.

The very tires you have on your vehicle right now could possibly

be used in the future for things like mulch, backpacks, belts, wallets

and all kinds of other consumer goods.”

Quest is looking for unique solutions that could be used in consumer products or for

Walmart’s retail operations, including the company’s stores and clubs, distribution

centers and fleet of trucks.
