TLC should remove Big Ed from their channel

"Big Ed" has been adopted by TLC as their supposed break out star from their latest season of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days. Sharp Media has taken him under their wing and promoted him and pushed him into the limelight.. He has been accused of many things including sexual assault and displays questionable online behavior. I will outline these allegations and considerations: A woman has come forward and alleged that she used to work with Big Ed. She also alleged that for 9 months, she was sexually harassed and assaulted by Ed while they worked together. She had to sign an NDA and admits she's been in therapy for years to get over it. He consistently chooses young girls to be on his Lives. His preference for inappropriately young women is also seen when he tells Rose he is old enough to be her dad. His trip on his season of Before the 90 Days was clearly sex tourism and to spin it as a love story promotes disgusting, predatory behavior that is a systemic global problem, especially in poverty-stricken Asian countries with very young women. The way he treated Rose on the show was degrading and misogynistic. For a channel that has such a large female following to champion a man who treats women like that, is ignorant and rude about her culture, living situation, and health seems counterintuitive. It seems unfathomable that advertisers such as those tagged in this petition would agree with and support the promotion of someone who sexually assaults, preys, and demeans women and bullies people online.

Home Depot: Stop selling deadly paint strippers

No family should lose a loved one because of deadly chemicals. But more than 60 families across the U.S. have lost loved ones to a dangerous chemical called methylene chloride. It’s found in paint strippers on the shelves of The Home Depot and other stores. Exposure can kill within minutes. Long-term exposure to methylene chloride has been linked to liver toxicity, liver cancer, and lung cancer.  And another common paint stripper chemical called N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP) can have dangerous effects if women of childbearing age or pregnant women use it. The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) has warned that just one day of exposure to NMP can cause miscarriage or fetal death. NMP is also linked to decreased birth weight and other fetal developmental effects. Last January, the EPA proposed banning methylene chloride and NMP in paint strippers, but the agency has yet to act. Since then, at least four more people have died from using paint strippers with methylene chloride. They left behind mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, friends.   This May, after more than 200,000 people signed petitions like this one to Lowe’s, that company committed to stop selling paint strippers with these dangerous chemicals by the end of 2018.  But Lowe’s top competitor The Home Depot is still refusing to act.  There’s just no good reason for retailers like The Home Depot to continue selling products containing these chemicals — especially when safer alternatives are readily available. If you agree that home improvement stores shouldn’t sell dangerous chemicals, please join us in calling on The Home Depot to ban the sale of toxic paint strippers now.

Remove Geoffrey Paschel from TLC shows

Geoffrey Paschel is on the currently airing TLC show "90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 days". This petition is to remove him from the show and have him appear on no further shows due to current allegations and criminal charges made against him. We would also like to make advertisers aware of what they are supporting, and hope to see that your companies will not stand for promoting such atrocities as these. He has been accused of kidnapping, abuse, rape, child endangerment, dealing drugs, felony larceny, theft and battery. He is barred from ever entering Canada. I have included more details below.  1. Alleged child engagement and abuse. He has been accused of abusing his boys physically and using his children as drug mules. During the time he was convicted of dealing opiates he was accused of bringing his children along to his drug deals. 2. He has been accused of abusing his ex girlfriend including a violent attack in which he dragged her bloody by her hair across the wood floors of their home, slammed her head into the walls, gave her a concussion and disabled her cell phone so she was unable to call the police. She said she escaped to a neighbor's house to dial 911. The blood stains on the furniature and around the house support her claims.  3. While under arrest for his abuse he was convicted for causing severe police property damage to a police car and kicking the car with his foot repeatedly.  4. Allegedly he abused his pregnant ex wife and locked her in a hotel room in Costa Rica without food or water. She claimed she was forced to deliver her baby alone in that hotel room. It is speculated that he might have been doing drug deals at the time, but not confirmed.  5. He has a total of four ex wives and three of them have accused him of rape.

Train point of sale employees to ask customers "Would you like a bag?"

I understand the problem of single use plastic bags.  I also understand that sometimes they are necessary.  This petition is advocating for the use of small, inexpensive steps to reduce their use in commerce by training point of sale employees to simply ask customers, "Would you like a bag?"  This would prompt the consumer to check other options.  I often have a reusable tote in my purse that I forget about until bagging has begun.  If the item is small, I may just want to throw it into my purse.  If I'm already carrying several shopping bags, I may just combine it into another bag.  And if none of these options are available, I can say "sure, I'd like a bag today."  If people were hearing this question at every retailer, it may create a shift in their thinking regarding bag use; it goes from "of course I'm getting a bag" to "do I really need one?" or "should I bring my own today?" It could make employees more aware of bag use and less on "autopilot" when bagging.  I sometimes find that employees are annoyed when I say I have my own because it throws off their bagging process.  If they've already bagged something, they will just take the item out of the bag and THROW THE BAG INTO THE TRASH rather than try to use it with the next customer.  I understand that once the bag is off the dispenser, it becomes more difficult to work with, so by simply asking a customer first if they need a bag, rather than assuming, they could save themselves this hassle. As leaders in the retail field, I hope you'll seriously consider this proposition.  It requires minor retraining of your employees on your part, but may ultimately lead to your company saving on plastic bags, while positioning you as a responsive leader in the area of environmental concerns.  Thank you for reading and sharing.

Require Plant Sellers to Label house Plants that are Toxic to Animals

This Easter our cat was poisoned by Easter Lilly pollen. Our neighbor, who has no pets, had no knowledge of its severe toxicity, even just by contact.This plant, among others that are poison to pets, are bought frequently unbeknownst to the buyer. We need to require clear labeling on plants that can kill our pets! This is not common knowledge and a simple yellow caution warning tag on a plant should be required to protect animals from painful renal failure and sometimes death. Often times, it’s too late once symptoms of Lilly poisoning starts. A simple google search will find article after article about the increase of houseplant poisoning of pets specifically around the holidays (Easter lilies and poinsettias specifically).  Lillies do not need to be ingested to be fatal, and that is a tragedy.Please consider signing this petition to protect innocent pets and pet owners from the heartache of a plant poisoning that could be avoided by a simple label. Treatment of poisoning is hard and expensive and some households go into debt to try to reverse this poisoning. Prevention and awareness should be on the shoulders of those selling these types of plants. Please sign to protect our furry family members! This petition is to initiate change. We are asking all stores including the largest ones that vend houseplants to take this serious and be responsible sellers to protect their customers and their furry family members from heartbreak! #LabelToxicHousePlants
