Note from the editor

 
Hard as it is to believe, we're nearly halfway through 2022. And at Retail Dive, we're marking the occasion with a series of stories focused on sustainability.

We think about sustainability on a near-daily basis, and we know retailers do too. Its influence can be seen in retailers debuting resale or refurbishment programs, in companies piloting new forms of packaging or testing out new materials, and in retailers' long-term strategies. How to mitigate the waste that retail inherently causes is top of mind for many, and it's becoming more important as investors and customers clamor for more action from the industry.

But tackling sustainability touches so many different aspects of retail, and the challenges and methods vary from sector to sector. So, over the next several weeks, we'll be sharing insights into some of the biggest sustainability questions we have right now. Keep an eye on your inbox at the beginning of each week for our latest feature in the series.

Today, we're kicking it off by exploring how retailers can meaningfully create change when the purpose of a business is to sell more product. Check out that story here, or find it just below this note.

As always, let us know what you think.
