WalMart: Phase out one time use plastic bag waste.

To be delivered to Doug Mcmillon, CEO

Petition Statement

Doug Mcmillon (CEO): Phase out one use disposable plastic bags from all WalMart stores around the world.
There are currently 197 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

WalMart, you claim that you are reducing plastic bag waste around the world? http://corporate.walmart.com/global-responsibility/environment-sustainability/plastic-bags
Why is the USA not included on your own list?

Please phase out the use of one time use plastic bags immediately. Set a deadline for eliminating them from your stores and show the world that you really care. You can start start by implementing a small fee on them to discourage their use and offering customers a reusable bag alternative. It has worked around the world with dramatic results, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phase-out_of_lightweight_plastic_bags

Plastic bags kill birds, animals and fish, block storm water drains and fill land fills. The parking lots and local areas in the vicinity of your stores are littered with them, yes with your name on them. Be the leader you claim to be.
