Jim Sinegal rocks

Costco knows wassup.
"There's no sense in me BS-ing you. The reason we did it originally was exactly as you're suggesting -- to save money. We put the skylights in so that we didn't have to turn the lights on. But of course it's also environmentally correct. We also recycle all the boxes that the goods come in. And we're working on how we can simplify packaging and save on fuel. We just reconfigured our cashews. They were in a round canister, and we put them in a square canister. It sounds crazy, but we saved something like 560 truckloads a year of that one product. That's significant savings."

  1. That's so great, 560 truckloads!

    One of my favorite quotes is from Chrissie Hynde she recently said: "Did you know that a vegetarian driving a Hummer has less impact on the environment than a meat-eater on a bicycle?"
