Where are the waffles?
I was recently in my local Super Walmart wondering why the whole frozen food aisle was dark. Then as I walked down the aisle to find the frozen waffles (my kids love them) the lights starting coming on in each freezer as I approached them.
It seems Walmart is making an effort to conserve energy and I applaud them for it. We bloggers are quick to pummel companies like Wally World for their supply chain antics… but when they do something good I think we should recognize them for it.
The Green Japan
During my recent trip to Japan with Gemba Research one of the things I noticed was how energy focused all the companies we visited were.
At Toyota, for example, when the workers went on break they turned off the lights in their area. Such a small thing likely provides huge overhead savings for Toyota and more significantly the environment.
What about you?
What about you or your company? Do you turn the lights off when people aren’t around? What other “green” things do you try to do in order to make our world a better place?
