Say hello to Walmart’s “Circular Connector,” launched in April 2022 as a partnership between companies searching for more sustainable packaging ideas and those that offer them.

The Circular Connector is an online portal available on WalmartSustainabilityHub.com for Walmart suppliers to access resources and learn about opportunities to collaborate with Walmart for sustainability solutions.

You can join initiatives or review case studies and best practices to encourage corporate sustainability initiatives on the portal. Packaging companies and suppliers can submit innovative ideas that align with Walmart’s sustainable packaging goals.

The company screens all applications. Those approved will be published later this year for public download from the website and made available to Walmart private brands associates and suppliers for their consideration.

Materials difficult to recycle could be rejected.

Substrates Difficult to Recycle

  • Metalized films
  • Multilayer materials
  • PVC or PVDC
  • EPS or PS
  • PETG in rigid plastic packaging
  • Oxo-degradable

Walmart’s Recycling Playbook provides more such information and examples for sustainable packaging. The Circular Connector demonstrates Walmart’s commitment to making it easier for customers to make sustainable choices through companies that are committed to sustainability goals for a cleaner and eco-friendly environment.

Companies with reusable, refillable, recyclable, and other sustainable packaging solutions, can share their innovations at WalmartSustainabilityHub.com
