Walmart and Procter &
Gamble have collaborated
for several years on ways to show consumers how they can save water and energy
in their homes through smart product and habit choices.
Now, the two companies have teamed up to develop an interactive, educational and
entertaining experience at www.walmart.com/fortheplanet, designed to
educate families on how they can conserve resources in their homes with a few
simple changes. The experience is part of Walmart’s Built for
Better online shopping
destination that is designed to make it easy for customers to identify and shop
for products that are better for people and the planet.

Designed by brand and sustainability experts from P&G and Walmart, and developed
by interactive agency Eko, the online experience brings an
element of fun to learning about more sustainable practices in the home. Led by
elementary school-age “scientists,” viewers go on a journey through the home —
including kitchen, bathroom and laundry room — answering questions and learning
how small adjustments to their everyday routine can add up to potential water,
energy and money savings over the course of a year.
Join us for a transformational experience at SB Brand-Led Culture Change — May 8-10 in Minneapolis. This event brings together hundreds of brand leaders eager to delve into radical lifestyle shifts and sustainable consumer behavior change at scale. The trends driving cultural acceleration are already underway, and you can be at the forefront of this transformative movement.
As they make choices throughout the home, a Sustainability Impact Scorecard
keeps a running total of potential savings, bringing the viewer’s individual
impact to life in a tangible, immediate way. For example:
Switching from hot to cold
water when washing laundry using a high-efficiency, top-load machine uses up to 93 percent less energy.
Turning off the tap while shaving can save up to 3 gallons of water per shave^1^, and cutting shower time by 1 minute can save up to 520 gallons of water per year.^2^
Using the dishwasher instead of washing dishes by hand can save up to 150
gallons of water a week.^3^
At the conclusion of their experience in each room, viewers have the option to
‘Add-to-Cart’ the sustainable product choices they just learned about —
featuring P&G brands including
Cascade, Dawn, Crest,
Pantene and Swiffer, among others.
“At Walmart, it has always been our purpose to help people live better lives.
Saving money has been core to that purpose since the beginning,” says Jane
Ewing, SVP of Sustainability. “But today, ‘live better’ means more. Customers
have always trusted us for our low prices; but they also want to know that the
products they buy are good for their families, the people who made them and the
This effort is an extension of P&G’s “It’s Our Home” consumer
introduced in April 2021 — which was inspired by consumer research that found
most people want to protect the planet, but they’re not always sure where to
start. According to a study of 1,125 US consumers conducted by P&G in February
2021, 79 percent of consumers want the brands they buy to help them live a more
and 90 percent of parents reported that their children are most likely to
influence them to be more sustainable at
The experience will be evergreen on Walmart.com and continue to be updated and
optimized from user feedback. Consumers will discover the site through a
combination of Walmart- and P&G-led media.
“This is a great example of how P&G brands together with our retailer partners
can encourage more sustainable consumption, making it easy for people to shop
for and use the brands they love in a more sustainable way — with no tradeoffs
in the product performance they expect,” said Mindy Sherwood, President of
P&G’s Global Walmart business and Chief Sales Officer at P&G.
