Make all Menstrual Products Plastic Free
Conventional period products contain up to 90% plastic and are constantly being manufactured, used for between 4-8 hours, disposed of and then take over 500 years to break down, meaning if Jane Austen had used them they would still be decomposing today!  They can enter rivers and oceans and end up on beaches. In fact, a report by the European Commission found that period items are the fifth most common waste washed up on beaches! This happens when they are incorrectly flushed down toilets, and shockingly 2.5 million tampons, 1.4 million pads and 700K pantyliners are flushed in the UK every single day! This pollutes and negatively impacts the environment and contributes to ocean plastic, which kills around 1 million sea birds and 100,000 sea mammals, marine turtles and countless fish yearly. Overtime their plastic content disintegrates into smaller pieces, known as micro-plastics and fibres, which pose a further threat to marine-life and ecosystems. [1,2] They also contribute to over 200,000 tonnes of landfill waste every year, however, any not sent to landfill may be incinerated with the potential to release toxins due to their high plastic and synthetic content. No matter where they end up, whether at the bottom of the sea, in landfill or on a beach, they will remain there for hundreds of years and pose constant danger to animals and birds. The adverse impact that single-use plastic is having on our health and the environment has been gaining huge media coverage, and because there are already so many companies out there producing eco-friendly versions it is obvious now more than ever that plastic is clearly not needed in period products. Therefore it is crucial that we bring about change so that these essential products are inflicting minimum damage. This is why myself and over 183K supporters are calling on the companies and supermarkets manufacturing single-use period products to take responsibility for the environmental impacts they are having and to make change happen by going plastic-free! This petition covers menstrual pads/towels and tampons including their applicators, wrappers and packaging. Please sign, share and together let's break the plastic cycle, period! Thank you for supporting the campaign!

Stop cutting down trees for Palm Oil
Hello owner of Johnson and Johnson. My name is Dylan and I am 6 years old, and my mummy is helping me write this. It makes me sad that humans are cutting down trees and hurting orangutans to get palm oil. Mummy said that you put palm oil in your products. Please can you stop paying people to chop down trees for palm oil. When Mummy showed me Iceland’s orangutan cartoon and I got upset because there were humans in the forest cutting it down. I told mummy that we should bring all the orangutans here to save them but she said we can’t because they need their own home. So I’m writing this letter instead. If Johnson and Johnson keep using unsustainable Palm Oil then we will keep losing orangutans. It's really sad because when humans cut down trees to get palm oil they are knocking down the orangutans’ houses and sometimes the orangutans die. If someone came and knocked my house down with me inside and all my family I would be sad and I'd get hurt and that's not fair. You would be cross if someone knocked your house down too. When I grow up I want to go see orangutans but if you keep getting people to knock down trees there won't be any orangutans left. I hope you stop before Christmas so the orangutans have a great Christmas. Thank you for reading my letter. Dylan (Please sign)
Urge Companies to Ditch Plastic and Find Alternatives
Plastic is the number one trash problem we have been faced with in our generation. It is in our oceans, landfills, lakes, it blows around our land and is being found in almost all living creatures. It is nearly impossible to go shopping and not buy plastic of some sort. It is time for things to change on a corporate level, it is time for companies to start switching over to other alternatives. There is technology that exists that give us alternatives and it is time for these large companies to start utilizing these technologies. In signing this petition you are making a stand to demand that companies find new solutions and stop being part of the problem. You are also stating that you yourself are going to look for alternatives to plastic and try to work toward a solution as well. We are all affected by the over use of plastic in our world. In a study commissioned by data journalism outlet Orb, 83% of tap water samples collected from over a dozen countries on five continents tested positive for microplastic. In a US study they found microplastic in 94% of tap water. There are about 300 million tons of plastic produced annually. There are studies that are researching the effect on marine life and birds like this one, Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization. They said "So much plastic trash is flowing into the oceans that 90 percent of seabirds eat it now and virtually every one will be consuming it by 2050." In 1960 plastic was found in only 5% of birds. During this study the plastic found inside birds includes bags, bottle caps, synthetic fibers from clothing, and tiny rice-sized bits that have been broken down by the sun and waves. Tipa is an Israeli company that produce plastic alternative packaging. Nature works a company in Nebraska creates a plastic alternative made from corn. Biome Bioplastics is one of the UK’s leading developers of natural plastics. We are demanding change! Big companies, its time to get on board and ditch the plastic!
Sign a signature, save an animal
We are a group of Year 5 students who want big companies to stop using animal product testing. Animals are suffering for products being tested on them and we want YOU to help us stop that NOW. There are other alternatives for animal product testing that don't harm any living creatures, such as cell culture and human simulators. If we collect enough signatures and enough people boycott these companies that test on animals, the companies will need stop animal product testing. Once we have collected signatures, we will send them to companies and follow up to see if they have stopped animal product testing.
Johnson & johnson autorize las prótesis de Pami
Luego de dos años de espera de mi pedido de prótesis de cadera, el PAMI autorizó la misma el día 12 de Junio del corriente año. Con este trámite, para mi, resuelto, me acerco a la Clínica ADOS, para acordar una fecha de operación lo más pronto posible, allí me informan que no pueden indicarme una, dado que me encuentro en lista de espera, siendo la número 51. Grande es mi sorpresa!! cuando me dicen que hay personas postradas esperando, algunas desde hace 7 meses, que la empresa proveedora Johnson & Johnson, que debería entregarlas a la Clínica, al día 20/07 no las ha provisto. Tengo MIELOMA MULTIPLE y esto me produjo una NECROSIS DE CADERA, la cual me dificulta y a veces hasta impide caminar, NECESITO LA PROTESIS CON URGENCIA. Quisiera que se hagan eco, de esta situación, los Señores políticos, y nos resuelvan esta problema, ya que somos 51 personas que estamos esperando prótesis desde hace mucho tiempo y necesitamos nos gestionen ante Johnson & Johnson(empresa contratada por el Estado), la entrega de las mismas, dado que PAMI ya las autorizó. Esto significaría una mejor calidad de vida para todos los que estamos en este estado.
Reduce plastic by asking retailers to switch cotton bud stem from plastic to paper
Plastic cotton bud stems are one of the top 10 item of plastic, sewage-related debris on our beaches and rivers - yet retailers could help prevent this by switching the stick from plastic to paper. In the marine environment, plastics can be eaten by marine life, often with fatal consequences. Plastic is found in the stomachs of Loggerhead Turtles, Seabirds and many species of caught fish. And pieces that don't get eaten break down into microplastics, forming part of a dangerous plastic smog in our seas. Now we need to make sure the cotton bud manufacturers in India change the stem from plastic to paper... which is why we need to show them how many of us support the switch to paper! Even paper stem cotton buds shouldn’t be flushed down the loo. But if they are, they're less likely to pass through sewage filters and will quickly biodegrade if they escape. So please sign and share our petition to ask the Indian retailers to Switch the Stick from plastic to paper. This campaign is inspired by successful drive in UK led by CityToSea.org Special mention to Rob Greenfield via whom I got to know about CityToSea's inspirational story.

Remove petroleum-based FD&C colors from all children's antibiotics, ADHD medications, allergy medications, cold remedies, pain relievers, vitamins, and toothpastes.
WHY do ADHD medications contain FD&C dyes that, according to the FDA, exacerbate ADHD symptoms? More American parents are demanding higher quality and affordable foods, medicines, and healthcare for their children. Mothers, in particular, control most household budgets, and our decisions make a major impact on food and medication sales around the world. As a mother of a dye-sensitive child, I'd like to see the major players in this scenario improve upon a few of the greatest health discoveries of modern times: I am challenging all American pharmaceutical companies and manufacturers to remove petroleum-based FD&C colors and flavors from all children's antibiotics, ADHD medications, allergy medications, cold remedies, pain relievers, vitamins, and toothpastes. "FD&C" (food, drug, and cosmetic) colors add no medicinal or nutritional value to children's medications, vitamins, and toothpaste. They are added for aesthetic purposes only, or to lure young consumers to their brightly-colored bottles of vitamins emblazoned with cartoon characters. But the real problem with non-nutritive additives such as synthetic colors and flavors is that they are made from petroleum, and are linked with a long list of health and behavioral problems in children. Synthetic food colorings such as Red 40, Red 3, Yellow 5, Yellow 6, Blue 1, Blue 2, and Green 3 have been linked to cancer, behavioral disorders, hives, eczema, asthma, mood swings, bed-wetting, aggression, sleep disturbances, migraines, nausea, vomiting, lowered zinc levels, ADHD, hyperactivity, learning problems, and reproductive problems. Some children's toothpastes also contain D&C dyes such as Red 28 and Red 33 that are NOT approved for use in food, but are still absorbed through children's tongue and gums DAILY. Red 3, found in drugs and candy, was partially banned by the FDA at one time for being a known carcinogen, but is now approved again for use in food and drugs. Incidentally, it's also listed as an insecticide. Imagine your child has a painful ear infection or pneumonia, or they need surgery, and the only antibiotics and pain relief available contain red or yellow dyes. Pink liquid antibiotics, red allergy tablets, and purple cough medicines are the standard offerings in the U.S. Even "off-white" capsules contain yellow dyes, which are contaminated with carcinogens. Synthetic flavorings are also petroleum-based and cause similar reactions to dyes, but are sometimes not even listed in the ingredients. Unfortunately, families with sick kids cannot simply reach for an alternative brand of antibiotics, like they can with macaroni and cheese or candies. Nor can they whip up their own recipe at home. Pharmacies are limited in their ability to find dye-free medications such as amoxicillin, azithromycin, Tylenol, Zyrtec, Benadryl, and ADHD medications. Families whose children are severely reactive to synthetic colors must either pay up to ten times as much to have their antibiotic prescriptions filled without dyes at a compounding pharmacy, or opt for traditional medications out of desperation - and watch their child suffer with horrific and painful side effects for up to two weeks. Some children's medications are needed daily, like allergy tablets. But most children's medications are needed sporadically, as with fever or infections. However, the ADHD medications, gummy vitamins and toothpastes that our children are exposed to daily are no better for them than the petroleum-tainted antibiotics and cold medicines. In fact, synthetically-dyed and flavored vitamins are hardly better for children than candy in some respects. Children's vitamins and toothpastes contain sugars, synthetic petroleum-based dyes, synthetic petroleum-based flavorings, and synthetic preservatives.We may not let our children indulge in candy daily, but vitamins and brushing teeth are a different matter. The FDA has no idea what this type of daily exposure to dyes will do to a child over a lifetime. And the few dye-free alternative vitamins on the market are so expensive that most American families cannot afford them. The excuse of higher cost for substituting with natural dyes is even weaker when it comes to pharmaceuticals, compared with food manufacturers...Pharmaceutical companies need only to leave the antibiotics and ADHD medications an unadulterated white (no blue dye for brightness or yellow dye for creaminess, please). Even for vitamins, clear liquids and white tablets or powders that can be mixed into a favorite beverage are more cost effective than synthetically dyed versions. And of course, white toothpaste works just as well as blue sparkled paste. If you need to differentiate the various doses, use an indented or dobossed code, as is already in popular use. We demand an affordable dye-free choice from pharmaceutical companies. We can make our own dye-free electrolyte drinks and comfort foods when our little ones are sick. But we can't make our own dye-free life-saving antibiotics and allergy medications. And certainly not ADHD medications! For some kids like Rylie, two weeks seems like a short time to suffer the effects of dyed medications. Read her mother's heart-wrenching story of how they solved the mystery of her ongoing neurological and health problems by ditching the dyes. See my list of Scientific Research On Food Dyes for studies dating from recent years all the way back to the 1970s. In that list you will find a comprehensive collection of studies performed on each FDA-certified synthetic food color, published by the Center For Science In The Public Interest. I envision a day when the cure is better than the disease. A day when parents don't have to choose between cheap yet agonizing convenience, or budget-busting peace of mind. You have a choice, Big Pharma: Either #DitchTheDyes or lose your market share as more families demand dye-free healthcare!
Boycott companies "Boycotting" YouTube's advertisment program
We vow to boycott the purchasing of any products from any company boycotting YouTube's Adsense program on supposed "moral" grounds. This will take effect immediately until your YouTube ad revenue is turned on. We also request a statement from your company expressing allegiance to the spirit of our Bill of Rights and Constitution specifically the 1st Amendment. And an acknowledgement that like every citizen of this great country your company has a SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY to honor the 1st Amendment and Bill of Rights. Simply stated we believe that this move to "demonetize" content creators is thinly veiled CENSORSHIP. As your companies "supposed moral stance" on "racist rhetoric" or "violent content" is not reflected in "mainstream media advertising" where countless movies, television shows, news casts, music etc display images, concepts, acts and verbiage dealing in racism, sexism, materialism, greed, violence, profane language, explicit sex acts, innuendos of pedophilia, endorsements of war and countless other hideous, insidious, profane and immoral acts. Furthermore the companies mentioned have histories of engaging in scandals and illegal activities themselves. HSBC for example laundering money for drug cartels and terrorists groups. GSK China bribery scandal. AT&T spying scandal and the 100 million dollar fine it paid for "misleading consumers" These are but a few examples in a LONG LIST OF CORRUPT AND IMMORAL activities engaged in by said companies. The hypocrisy is palpable. The timing questionable. The and the end result is an ANTI AMERICAN, anti freedom, anti free market, anti human result. We see this as nothing more then "globalist, fascist" power grab. With the intention of quashing the ever growing independent media and entertainment complex. As you companies political, social and economic interests lie in the preservation of the "Corporate Media Establishment" aka "State sponsored media" We request that the following companies reinstate their Revenues to Youtube in order to lift out "peoples boycott" on your products. Simple steps can be taken in order to reduce ads being displayed next to "unethical" content. This does not have to include punishing whole segments of the YouTube community and CENSORING unpopular opinions. ArgosAudiAvivaHavas Group UK froze all of its spend.
