Meet Barbie and Help Her Go Green!

Walmart is inviting customers to have fun while contributing to a more sustainable future with

“Give Back with Barbie Cares," an in-store event Saturday Nov. 8.

Moms, daughters and Barbie lovers can bring in their Barbie dolls to be used in a pilot program exploring toy recyclability at participating toy departments from noon to 3 p.m. There will be a pink recycle bin in the toy department and each girl who donates a doll will receive a free pink sustainable shopping bag from Mattel. Furthermore, for each doll collected, Mattel will donate a new doll to a local children’s hospital, up to 100,000 dolls!

Customers should also bring their digital cameras to snap a picture with Barbie and receive a coupon to print a free 4x6” photo from the Kodak Picture Maker that same day. Other Barbie-themed give-aways will be on hand, while supplies last.

One thousand stores will host a live Barbie and 2,000 will have a standee. You can see if your local store is participating HERE

*PS: You can bring as many dolls to recycle as you want. They DO need to be Barbie or "Barbie-like" dolls (ie: brats dolls, princess dolls).

I am really starting to get disappointed with Wal-Mart none of their free events are ever held within driving distance. I live in a large city with 3 walmarts - you'd think they'd have an event at at least one of them.

Stopping by to say hi and visit. I have enjoyed your videos, just added you to my blogroll so my readers can visit you.

I like the Barbie recycling program and would love to see more companies do this--especially electronic recycling!
