Urge Big Box Retailers to Offer Eco-Friendly Alternatives

I will write to Big Box retailers to urge them to carry more eco-friendly alternatives that are low in water content. Such products reduce the use of plastics, require less carbon-intensive shipping methods, and encourage healthier consumption behavior (e.g., shampoo bars and detergents not in liquid form, in biodegradable packaging, are lighter to ship because of low water content).
