How can plastic manufacturing be better for the environment?

    Plastic manufacture can be made better for the environment by reducing the amount of plastic needed for packaging through thoughtful design. In one example, Wal-Mart has switched to a newly designed gallon milk jug that has helped save the company and its customers money while reducing the associated water usage from milk production, shipping, and distribution by 60-70%. In addition, transportation is vastly reduced through more efficient stacking during shipping, so fossil fuel usage is therefore reduced as well, showing some of the side benefits of manufacturing plastic in more efficient methods.
