Kohl's – more green than ever!

kohls3Kohl’s has long been recognized for providing quality and good prices. But did you know they’re green too?

Since 2008, Kohl’s has been making major strides in their green practices. They’ve:

  • recycled more than 95,000 tons of paper and cardboard – enough to make more than three billion Christmas cards.
  • recycled more than 100,000 tons of cardboard, plastic and hangers. During the holiday season alone, they recycle 30,000 tons of it!
  • made transporting merchandise efficiently a priority, eliminating more than 825,000 empty miles driven – the equivalent of driving from Kohl’s headquarters in Wisconsin to the North Pole more than 260 times.
  • Kohl’s circulars are printed on paper made from 100 percent certified forest sources.
  • A number of their stores are powered by solar.To date, 79 locations have solar panels that provide 20 to 50 percent of the energy needed to power the stores.

Also their “Flights of Fancy” gift card is made from 100 percent recycled plastic, it never expires and is redeemable at any Kohl’s location or on Kohls.com. All this plus great products and prices. That’s a terrific combination.
