Re: [greenyes] Wal-M.A.R.T.'s plastic bag color and plastic bag collection


AERT makes lumber I think they use bags and they are in Arkansas

FYI

I'm curious. I had presumed that Wal-M.A.R.T. had plastic bag collection boxes (similar to the one pictured here

for the public's use in all their stores as they do in the Northwest Arkansas region. If anyone knows of a Wal-M.A.R.T. store that doesn't regularly keep a plastic bag collection box(es) available would you kindly drop me a line by sending me an email (sp@no.address)?

Also, in the Northwest Arkansas region, the corporation, a couple of months ago, shifted from the use of blue vest-type carrier bags to white vest-type carrier bags. I'm wondering where else this may have happened. Why this was done, I don't know but the lighter color apparently makes the bags more easily dealt with in terms of their recyclability by plastic lumber manufactures. Again, would you mind dropping me a line?

Thanks much.
