General Motors was founded by William Durant, the leading manufacturer of horse-drawn vehicles, September 16, 1908, and GM held the Buick Motor Company (GM). During the acceleration period of 1910-1929, GM started the innovation of marketing, design, and production (GM).

From 1960 to 1979, society was concerned about environmental changes; however, GM responded to the concern by creating engines that could “run on low lead or unleaded gasoline” (GM).

Implementing a Tax or Charge on Plastic Bags Kevin P. Long MKT 3350-02 Consumer Behavior Leila Samii 2/23/2015 Abstract The overconsumption of plastic bags has had a strong negative impact on the environment. The plastic bags take up to one thousand years to biodegrade and are harmful to the environment. Some nations such as Ireland have combated this problem by placing a tax on plastic bags. This has helped to reduce consumption of plastic bags by over 90%. This paper analyzes why governments should implement a policy to tax plastic bags.
This paper will explorer and analyze the environmental practices of Wal-Mart in an effort to at least in part determine how far they have come to reaching those initial goals. Keywords: environment, environmental strategy, environmental initiatives, sustainability, greenhouse emissions, energy, An Analysis of Wal-Mart’s Environmental Strategy: The Pursuit of Becoming a Sustainable Company According to the article, Wal-Mart’s Environmental Strategy, the company never really had a leadership position when it came to environmental initiatives.

Chelsea Carr English 102-Sec 20 Rogerian Arguement 10-20-11 As the world gets older by the second it becomes increasingly apparent that, we as human beings should make some drastic changes in order to reverse the damage we have done to our planet. Recycling is the best example and maybe the easiest way to determine the fate of our planet. Green Revolution states, “in 2009, Americans generated approximately 243 million tons of waste 54.3% percent of that was dumped, 11.9% burned and 33.8 % of that was recycled” (Green). Could we imagine our world if that number rose more than 35%? Recycling is important to me not only because I am a member of this planet, but because I am an avid outdoorsmen and enjoy the small and subtle beauties that the world has to offer, and are and continue to be trashed, dumped upon and burned by lesser more ignorant people of society.

By driving more efficient vehicles, oil imports can be cut, money can be saved, jobs can be created, and it can help with global warming. According to the CAFÉ standards, the technology exists to improve the fuel efficiency standards for new cars and trucks. There are some that will argue that the 1975 Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFÉ) program failed to meet its goals of reducing oil imports and gasoline consumption, endangering human lives, and not helping with the global warming issue. Who’s right or wrong, or perhaps they are both right. “The United States spends more than $200,000 per minute on foreign oil that is $13 million per hour” (White, 2004).
