New Milk Jug Saves Cost and Fuel

Mal-Mart\'s New Jug


In its ongoing effort to reduce cost, Wal-Mart has created a new, square, milk jug. The new jugs are stacked on top of each other for shipping and display reducing the need for shipping crates and squeezing 4,709 more gallons of milk on each truck. Redesigning packaging is one way Wal-Mart is hoping to keep its cost low as well as its emissions. By working with its suppliers to develop new packaging Wal-Mart is expecting to reduce its emissions 667,000 metric tonnes or about 1.5 TRILLION pounds.
