• Wal-Mart Canada announced yesterday that it has achieved its goal “to carry only concentrated products in the liquid laundry detergent category in every one of its 299 stores nationwide … The switch in Canada alone will save an estimated 25 million gallons of water, six million pounds of plastic resin, eight million pounds of cardboard,
443,500 metric tonnes of carbon emissions and take the equivalent of 1,220 trucks off the road over a three-year period. For water, this will save the equivalent amount required for six million showers.”
