Disney's green dreams coming true

I always thought that theme parks could be one of the most wasteful, unsustainable places on earth as I imagine piles and piles of garbage in their gigantic trash warehouse; tons of water being used to keep their gardens and lawns nice and pretty as well as to operate their water rides; and all that energy to light up and keep the whole place moving.

Well, Walt Disney is making sure their theme parks will be family-friendly and environment-friendly as well as they announced their long-term sustainability goals in their first-ever corporate responsibility report.

Some of their 3-5 year environmental goals (among others) include zero waste, zero net direct greenhouse gas emissions, reduce indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from electricity consumption, minimize water use, and minimize product footprint.
