Walmart Greener

Part of a new $2 million Walmart donation will be targeted to improving the energy efficiency of food banks’ facilities, the Forbes green-themed “Eco-nomics” blog reports.

Energy efficiency grants serve multiple purposes. First, increasing the energy efficiency of a building falls inline with the Walmart Foundation’s sustainability goals. Second, if a building is more energy efficient then the food bank saves money, year over year, on energy costs. Finally, a more energy efficient building can actually reduce the amount of food that spoils while sitting on the shelves at the food bank.
