Loyalty360 Reads: October 6: American Eagle’s Sustainability Efforts, Walgreens Employs Robots, and



American Eagle’s Sustainability Efforts

American Eagle Outfitters has outlined sustainability progress and goals in its first environment, social, and governance report, with a focus on sourcing renewable energy and sustainable materials. The retailer's Real Good label designates garments made using sustainable design and production practices, and requirements for the label will continue to evolve and grow.

The retailer is committed to setting a long-term net-zero target by 2024, reducing water use, sourcing 100% renewable energy for all owned and operated facilities by 2030, and sourcing materials more sustainably. The Real Good label, which has sustainability in mind for all facets of design and production, encompasses 95 percent of jeans and more than half of American Eagle and Aerie styles. This is in addition to jeans being made in factories that meet AEO’s water standards.

Walgreens Employs Robots to Automate Prescription Fulfillment

Walgreens is expanding the use of robots to package prescriptions for patients at fulfillment centers. The system cuts the workload on pharmacists by about 25% and will save the company about $1 billion annually. The changeover will let pharmacists engage in more-profitable activities such as reaching out to patients and giving vaccinations.

A robot-run center outside Dallas fills 35,000 prescriptions for 500 stores every day. Humans still handle prescriptions that aren’t easily managed by robots, such as those for inhalers. Rush prescriptions and those for controlled substances are also filled by pharmacists.

Target Partners with Tupperware

Tupperware containers will now be available at Target. Generally, the company has sold its plastic food storage containers solely through in-home “Tupperware parties” or its own website. Through a partnership with Target, Tupperware will now be available in stores nationwide and on the Target website.

Tupperware’s bigger strategy to reinvent the brand includes plans to grow the business through multiple retail channels and get its products in front of younger consumers who never experienced the era of Tupperware parties.
