Walmartwatch.com is a website dedicated to making Wal-Mart change its business ethics. The website has been in effect since January 1, 2005 and currently relies on staff, paid workers and volunteers to keep the project up and running. Wal-Mart Watch is affiliated with The Center for Community and Corporate Ethics, which is devoted to studying the impact of large corporations on society, and Five Stones.

Aside from its web version, Wal-Mart Watch has also placed advertisements in newspapers, including USA Today and the New York Times. It also has a publicized annual report on Wal-Mart which can also be downloaded from the website.

Grossman says he hopes the website will be, "a resource base anyone can use," and will provide people will tools to help be more effective in changing the business ethics of corporations such as Wal-Mart.
