Make shops have posters listing cruelty free brands or sections dedicated to such products

Over 100,000,000 animals are killed each year due to animal testing.90% of those animals are killed for no reason because although the cosmetics were deemed appropriate for use on animals, they go on to fail the human testing. In shops, it’s hard to decipher between cruelty free and non cruelty free when you’re in a rush. You automatically go for what you know, rather than stopping and researching because it’s time consuming. With posters up around stores, listing cruelty free brands, or sections dedicated to cruelty free products, it’s easier for consumers to opt for cruelty free brands. If we start replacing our products cruelty free brands then we can all do our bit to help and protect those animals who are being exploited, that do not have a voice to protect themselves. I was reduced to tears after seeing a picture of a small mouse with their delicate face burnt after being subjected to the cruelty of animal testing. Over the coming weeks I will sit with my make up and skin care, and destroy all make up and skin care products that still test on animals, and replace these with cruelty free brands. As human beings, the only fully conscious beings, we should have the intelligence and duty of care, to say no to animal testing. Please sign this petition to help people make better choices and stop unnecessary animal abuse & exploitation.

Scrap greeting cards in John Lewis that promote harmful levels of drinking

As the founder of Soberistas.com, an online website for people experiencing a problematic relationship with alcohol, I see every day the carnage, sadness, and physical and emotional damage caused by the excessive use of alcohol. The 50,000 members of Soberistas are all striving to be sober in a society that promotes heavy drinking at every turn. This is despite the fact that just a few alcoholic drinks each night significantly increases a person's risk of breast cancer, early onset dementia, liver disease and around 60 other conditions and illnesses associated with alcohol consumption. The UK is (embarrassingly) known as a binge drinking nation, all over the world. We would like to see a cultural shift that steps away from the normalisation of heavy drinking in order to show future generations that they can be happy and have fun without being blind drunk. We are not a reincarnation of the Temperance Movement! And we see nothing wrong with alcohol usage in moderation. But when stores and other public organisations overtly trivialise the seriously damaging use of an addictive drug that is the biggest risk factor for death, ill-health and disability among 15-49 year-olds in the UK, we feel as though something has gone tragically wrong.  There is a long way to go in terms of changing the UK's attitude towards binge drinking but we think John Lewis could be a brilliant champion of positivity regarding this issue and really help in getting the ball rolling :-)

Stop the use of single-use plastics in Supermarket chains in Britain.

*PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION TO  HELP PROTECT THE ONLY WORLD WE HAVE* Single-use plastic is a massive issue in modern-day society, and will become even more of an issue in the near future. When you walk into the Supermarket almost everything is made of plastic, covered in plastic, has plastic on the packaging and will also will also go into a plastic bag. The mentality that we can use plastic and it have no consequence has to be eliminated, both for natures benefit and ours.  Once you use these plastics, the first thing you do is throw it away. What is the purpose of that? In a world where there are so many alternatives, why are we still using materials that damage the only planet we have? Alternatives can be used such as Biodegrable card, paper, metal and plant based materials. Using these for packaging, covers, films and bottles would mean that we leave a much less damaging footprint on the earth.  All of the Supermarkets and businesses that this petition is aimed at endlessly contribute to plastic pollution- something that we as humans should all be against. This petition is made to urge the companies to start using alternatives and to explain to them why we shouldn't be using plastics. Companies will keep using plastics because they are much cheaper and easier to produce. We have to confront them, and make the change. Stop buying these products from them until they produce alternatives. Your money is your vote, the power is in your hands. If we stop buying from them, then the system will have to change. It is not worth buying products from supermarkets that are filled and package with plastic, just for convenience. Unless we make the change, the change will destroy us. When people buy a product covered in plastic, some people litter which most of the time leads to the plastics getting blown into the sea or a river so that fish consume plastic particles that eventually end up in humans. Or, you throw it away immediately, as it is no use to you anymore. This gets collected with the rest of the rubbish and gets taken away to a dump, some of the plastics can also be blown away into the sea. Once at the dump, all the materials are compacted tightly together so loads of bad materials fester together and can produce harmful gases. Now, this is either burned, so loads of emissions get released into the atmosphere, contributing to global warming. Or, it just sits there and rots for up to 1000 years taking up land and just remains on the earth. Eventually, degraded plastic particles often filter into our soils and water and contaminate them, making it diffucult for the local residents to have a good quality of life. Sometimes, animals will eat these plastics and can sometimes die.

We call on the board at John Lewis to pay the Living Wage to cleaners working at John Lewis shops and offices.

Thank you for your interest in this important issue. Fair pay is one of the core principles of the John Lewis Partnership and we share the Living Wage campaign’s objectives to pay employees fairly. We achieve that, however, through different means. Our policy is to pay the market rate for a job and as much above that as can be justified by performance. On top of that our Partners receive a share of our profits as well as other benefits such as a final salary pension (after a qualifying period). In relation to cleaning, with a few historical exceptions, the majority of cleaners who work in our branches are, as with almost every company, contractors. Most work for more than one company, often on the same day.  Like all retailers we work with many different contractors of various kinds throughout our supply chain. We could not operate effectively if all our contractors were Partners. We take our responsibilities to all our suppliers and contractors very seriously. We expect them to uphold good employment standards. We have made a number of improvements to the definition of those standards recently, including improved processes around contract placement and contractor management. However, we do not believe it is right for us to insist our suppliers or managing agents adopt pay policies that are different to our own by setting base pay levels well above the market rate.
