  1. Hi!
    It’s amazing that Gen Y isn’t leaning more towards environmentally friendly shopping. It appears that wisdom does come with age. 🙂 Thanks for the information.

    If you have a chance, check out my blog post today on Retail Design Diva about retailers who are making major steps towards being environmentally friendly. It’s pretty amazing. Office Depot even reduced its carbon emissions by 10% despite adding 1.7 million more sq. ft. in stores.
    Be sure to leave a comment if you know of other retailers making a difference for our environment.

    Heather 🙂
