Wal-Mart Unveils Plan to Make Supply Chain Greener

Here's the opening paragraph of this article from The New York Times web site's "Energy & Environment" page, part of its Business section (it appears in today's print edition, too).

"Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest retailer, announced on Thursday that it would cut some 20 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions from its supply chain by the end of 2015 — the equivalent of removing more than 3.8 million cars from the road for a year."

Remember our discussion with Dr. Phillips about hidden costs of our stuff?  This article fits right into that.
