Just in Time for Earth Day: An Easier Tool for Sustainable Shopping

It can be really difficult to know if the products you buy are sustainable, and buying them on a budget can be even more of a challenge.

That's why it is so nice to see the Walmart Sustainability Leaders Shop making it easier to find products made by companies that have scored as best in class in Walmart's Sustainability Index.  (You can read more about the index here.)

And, because it's Walmart, their focus on low prices lets you squeeze another sustainable product into your budget.

More than 10,000 products are made by companies that meet the leadership standards, and these products have earned a badge!  That means you can reasonably shop for just the right products -- at the right price -- to support sustainable efforts moving forward.

Here's a quick tutorial on the Sustainability Leaders Shop:

I love the idea that, if a company is really making strides to be a good steward of the Earth, then they should be be rewarded with a badge for shoppers to know about their achievements.  I can easily find products from the companies that care about my children's future and their children's future, too!

What will your family do to be more sustainable?  Will shopping better (and more affordably) be part of that plan?
