One of the most common excuses for environmentalism is that we have to use more resources to produce more goods and services. This ignores the fact that more resources are being used to produce fewer goods and services. Not only does this put jobs and economic strain on both the consumer and producer, it also results in less environmental consciousness.
This is an easy and obvious point, but let’s think about it for a minute. How many times have you seen a billboard for a new product, a new service, or a new service? The billboard has a picture of the product, the service, or the service itself, and it’s usually accompanied by a short, catchy slogan.
This is exactly what is happening to your local Walmart. The company seems to be putting a lot of effort into pushing out as many as possible of their products, but it’s not enough to keep up with demand. Why? Because many of them are doing the exact same thing as Walmart.
In this video from the Huffington Post, Walmart’s new “environmental” campaign is being called the Walmart Effect. The campaign is supposed to be an aggressive way to educate consumers about the company’s initiatives. It’s not really, though. Walmart’s entire strategy is to push as many of their products as possible into the hands of consumers. However, the effort to push out as many of the company’s products as possible, is just marketing.
Walmart’s environmental strategy, and most of their advertising, is pretty much the same as the one Amazon is using. The new campaign is called the Walmart Effect and claims to be “the most effective way to engage your customers on a global scale.” It’s pretty much the same thing, except it’s called the “Walmart Effect” and has a couple of new features. One is an outdoor video where the company is trying to persuade you to go shopping at Walmarts.
I know what you’re probably thinking, but this is not an example of “environmentalism” in the sense of trying to help save the environment. This is an example of “environmentalism” as in, “Walgreens is the best place for a quick bite to eat.
If you ask any WalMart employee, they will tell you it’s not that Walgreens is great about food, its that it’s the best place for a quick bite to eat. I’m sure some of you have been there enough times to say it’s actually a very good experience.
There are those who believe that this is the true goal of environmentalism. In my experience, this is not the case. The argument that these Walmarts are so great is that they have healthy food that they don’t charge for. My experience has been that Walmarts are more concerned with profit and sales than with the health of the people who work there. In other words, you have to shop there if you want to eat healthy.
To this I say that if you want to eat healthy, you shop at the Walmarts. For me, I have found that the Walmarts do a great job of keeping things healthy. The health department is very conscientious and very informative. They do a great job of keeping track of the food that is being sold and in some cases they even have a plan to reduce the amount of food that is on sale.
There is a difference between the Walmarts and the health department. The health department is concerned with the health of the people who work there and the Walmarts are concerned with the health of the people who shop there. At the Walmarts I buy less meat and dairy, and I keep my salt intake down.
