Walmart Car Seat Exchange Comes To Early End
WALMART'S CAR SEAT RECYCLING EVENT WAS SO SUCCESSFUL THE COMPANY HAD TO END THE PROGRAM EARLY
(CNN) – Walmart’s new car seat recycling program was so successful, the event is ending early.
The company was offering a $30.00 gift card to anyone who brought in an old car seat.
It was part of a recycling effort with terracycle to keep plastic out of landfills.
The event started September 16th and was supposed to end September 30th.
But the store ended the program after nearly a million car seats were collected.
That’s according to a statement it made to USA Today.
It also said that’s the equivalent of diverting 200 million plastic bottles from landfills.
