Walmart Moving Greenward?

walmart.jpeGreenbiz reports today that “Walmart has committed $35 million over the next ten years to conserve at least one acre of priority wildlife habitat for every acre developed for company use.” I’m not sure if that includes parking lots, and it certainly dosn’t include the impact of Walmart’s suppliers, but with an estimated 138,000 acres of wild land scheduled to be conserved by the program, it’s very significant. More information on the “Acres for America program” can be found on the NFWF website.
