Walmart aims to increase the use of recycled polyester fibre, setting a goal of using 50 per cent recycled content by 2025 and to source 100 per cent more sustainable cotton. Further, Walmart will also work towards prioritising sustainable chemistry, setting a goal to reduce the discharge of priority chemicals from the textile manufacturing process. By 2022, Walmart US stores will source apparel and home textile products only from suppliers working with textile mills that use the Sustainable Apparel Coalition’s Higg Index Facility Environmental Module (FEM) to measure and help improve environmental performance. At its recent sustainability milestone summit, Walmart announced that for the first time, checkout carousels at its US stores will include reusable bags that will be available to customers for purchase. The aim of this new campaign is to help reduce plastic waste and increase customer convenience by placing reusable bags in easy to find and highly frequented sections of its stores.

As part of the launch, Walmart is rolling out a new assortment of reusable bags that are made with post-consumer recycled content. The new reusable bag initiative will begin rolling out to stores next month and follows a recent announcement by Walmart on a series of plastic waste reduction goals that seek to advance the sustainability of the retailer’s private brand packaging by making it 100 per cent recyclable, reusable or industrially compostable by 2025. "To achieve our ambitious climate goals, we aim to expand and deepen that engagement. The progress to date shows how companies can contribute to climate action through practical actions all along the product supply chain. Ultimately, building sustainable supply chains requires collective action from everyone – not only our associates and suppliers, but customers, business in general, and civil society. We are excited to be part of the solution," Kathleen McLaughlin, senior vice president and chief sustainability officer for Walmart.
