Wal-mart's other green policies

As we reported earlier, supermarket chain giant Wal-mart is considering sellling ethanol at its various stores. But apparently that's only a part of the company's environmental policies. According to our sibling blog bloggingstocks, CEO H. Lee Scott outlined other plans like working with companies to increase truck efficiency from average of 6.5 mpg to 13 mpg and add more than a 100 more hybrid vehicles to its fleet. Non-automotive policies include increased used of biodegradable packaging and the purchase of more organic products like 100 percent cotton shirts.
