The Power of the Sun(chips)

SunChips has started a promotion of being more green by purchasing green energy credits to offset the electricity that goes into making the snacks. Also, the chips are now being made with solar power in one of their California plants.

SunChips has also teamed up with Wal-Mart for a "commitment to the planet." They support renewable energy and these green energy credits will help more renewable energy development. They claim that if every Wal-Mart customer buys one bag of SunChips, the energy credits produced would match the amount of electricity needed to power over half a million homes in the country for one day. Not bad. Plus, they had an attractive woman pitching the idea in their commercial with a beautiful green meadow and bright sunlight.

Excuse me while I go buy 10 bags.
