The problem of abandoned carts affects us all in many ways. It starts with vehicle accidents in parking lots and on roadways as unsecured carts are hazardous.
To add to the problem, just think, every abandoned cart represents money the customer could be saving. Each and every one of those carts costs the retailer money. These costs are then passed onto the consumer in the form of higher prices.
The final insult comes to the environment. More gas used to drive around neighborhoods collecting them, more fuels used to manufacture more carts to replace them, more pollution for the ones that end up rotting wherever they have been abandoned.
No one wins except very briefly the person who illegally removed it. Yes, perhaps many aren't aware that it is actually illegal in most of the states to remove a cart from the retailers' premises!
Let's work together, help the environment, help keep our costs down and keep our frustrations down by organizing the parking lots. SMALL SOLUTIONS FOR BIG CHANGE.
