Walgreens has introduced a new Web site for socially-conscious consumers, investors and employees to find information about its commitment to community, diversity, supplier diversity, disability inclusion and the environment.
Walgreens.com/responsibility allows users to find new articles, personal stories, videos and interactive features about the company’s benefits to the communities it serves.
The new site showcases video clips about the company’s health and wellness programs. It also features new eco-friendly initiatives including efforts to reduce plastic bag usage, a cell phone and printer cartridge recycling program now at all store locations and a behind-the-scenes look at Walgreens participation in Earth Hour 2010 at New York’s Times Square.
Additional programs featured include the AARP/Walgreens Wellness Tour, expanded food centers in urban areas designated as food deserts, a pilot program in Dallas aimed at hiring people with disabilities in stores, and the Community Corner program that helps customers easily identify and purchase products produced by diverse companies.
“Walgreens is proud of its long history of commitment to communities,” said Walgreens vice president of corporate affairs and communications Chuck Greener. “Visitors to the site will see how we take social responsibility to heart and also discover the many ways Walgreens and our customers help neighborhoods throughout the country.”
