Disney World recently celebrated Earth Day at the parks. However, Disney World is continuing helping the earth in other recent news. Learn 2 ways Disney is helping the earth below.
1. Disney Stores Go Plastic Free
Disney Stores have gone plastic free, meaning, bring your re-usable bag with you next time you shop Disney retail stores and Disney outlet stores. Otherwise buy a bag in store. Disney Stores join a number of retailers phasing out plastic bags for shoppers.
This does not affect Disney Parks.
2. Disney World Goes Solar
Disney World has unveiled its plan to add a 270-acre, 50-megawatt solar facility near Animal Kingdom. This will produce enough power to meet 2 of its 4 main theme parks. Once completed this project is expected to have half a million solar panels. Another solar facility will be located nearby Epcot. Plans are to complete by end of 2018.
