Disney Sets Colossal Environmental Plans For The Future
Disney is taking a break from selling plastic and sugar and pausing for a moment to think about the environment!
On Monday, the corporation announced plans to cut fuel emissions in half at the company’s retail stores, theme parks, and cruise lines by 2012. And that’s just the beginning.
Disney hopes to eventually achieve net zero direct greenhouse gas emissions and landfill waste. I repeat, zero! This seems highly unlikely considering the fact that in 2006 Disney put 300,000 tons of garbage into the earth.
But keep in mind that these are just “goals.” Beth Stevens, senior vice president of environmental affairs at Disney said:
“We set those (goals) because they were very aspirational. We thought it was important … to communicate a sense of commitment.”
