The author comments on the announcement by Great Britain's leading food and clothing retailer Marks & Spencer that it will spend £200 million on a 100-point eco-plan that will see its operations become carbon neutral within five years. He cites that its goal for a 25% reduction in packaging equates to 25,000 tons/year less of polymers and paper, among others. He asserts that it is possible that this marks the beginning of a significant turning point.
