Dive into the deep blue sea of a Walmart Canada store to find a whale of a deal — the Blue Whale Pillow.
Filled and finished in Montreal by Hollander Sleep Products exclusively for Walmart Canada, the Blue Whale Pillow has been a top-selling product for years both online and in-store at Walmart.ca thanks to its low price and incredible comfort.
“Our customers love our iconic Blue Whale Pillow for the value and quality it offers,” says Erin Ichiyen, Walmart Canada Senior Category Manager. “But many Canadians may not realize this product is also protecting the planet.”
Each Blue Whale Pillow is made from approximately 25 recycled plastic water bottles. In 2021 alone, Canadians purchased nearly 1.2 million Blue Whale Pillows, which is only available at Walmart Canada, saving around 30 million plastic water bottles. That’s more than 610,000 lb. (more than 275,000 kg) of plastic potentially diverted from oceans and waterways.
