Wal-Mart is frequently attacked for its environmental impacts—what about other big retailers like Target, K-Mart, etc.?

    No big retailer is free from environmental impacts. The main reason Wal-Mart is the target of these attacks is because it is the biggest corporation in the world, and the biggest private employer in the US. Target is number 23 on the list of fortune 500 companies and KMart is number 67. Wal-Mart is about four times as big as KMart + Target combined. It is likely that Wal-Mart’s environmental impact would be comparable to it’s profits, so much worse than KMart or Target.

    Wal-Mart also violates US labor laws on a daily basis, and is the only top 5 fortune 500 company to not be unionized.
