ALL Marriott hotels should use solely cruelty free toiletries in their rooms

Ending animal cruelty is one of the most important and easily achievable goals in our modern world. There is a surplus of animal cruelty free toiletry brands that work just as well (if not better) than those that test on animals. With such an abundance of options there is no reason to continue with the exploitation of sentient beings! The overall goal would be to have all hotel chains use animal cruelty free toiletry brands but we have to start small to end big! Marriott is the biggest hotel brand and they own roughly >5,000 properties! Some of these properties have already made this amazing switch such as Courtyard Marriott, Residence Inn, SpringHill Suitesand Renaissance Hotels, now we just have to get them all! Imagine the impact we can make, the lives we can save, and the torture we can end with such a simple switch!!

Marriott: End Chicken Cruelty

If Marriott ran its hotels the way its egg suppliers run their factory farms, they would be filthy, small, overcrowded, and unsafe. Marriott brands itself as an upscale and luxurious hotel company, but it has a dark secret. Millions of egg-laying hens throughout Marriott’s global supply chain suffer in cruel cages. These cages are so small and packed with birds that the hens can’t do anything that is natural or important to them. Often, their body parts are caught in the caging, which results in fractured or broken bones, deformities, and severe feather loss. Some hens, exhausted or unable to move, are trampled to death by their cage mates. Hundreds of companies around the world are ditching cages. Global commitments to go cage-free are being made by some of the largest companies in the world, including Wyndham Worldwide, Accor Hotels, InterContinental Hotels, Hilton Hotels, Unilever, Nestle, Lidl,  Aldi, Aramark, Sodexo, Mondelez, and Compass Group. Even low-end fast food companies and US prisons are moving away from this horrible practice. Marriott has recognized that cages are inhumane and outdated. In 2013, it promised customers that it would go cage-free by 2015, and Marriott received public praise for the pledged move to higher welfare standards. Three years after that deadline, hens are still suffering for Marriott. Customers are tired of false promises and hollow commitments. Even Marriott’s own brand, Starwood, has made a global commitment to completely phase out cages by 2020. Marriott says: “How we do business is as important as the business we do.” Marriott needs to start prioritizing how it does business. It needs to follow-through on its commitments and work to meet basic animal welfare standards. It’s time for Marriott to make good on its promise to finally go 100% cage-free globally. Please sign this petition to tell Marriott that you won’t be staying at any of their hotels until it stops supporting this egregious animal abuse.

Marriott: Pon fin a la Crueldad Hacia las Gallinas

     Si Marriott dirigiera sus hoteles de la misma forma que sus proveedores de huevo dirigen sus granjas industriales, serían sucios, pequeños, abarrotados e inseguros. La cadena Marriott se jacta de ser de alto nivel, con hoteles de lujo, pero tiene un oscuro secreto: Millones de gallinas ponedoras sufren en grotescas y sucias jaulas  a lo largo de la cadena de abasto global de los hoteles Marriott.  Éstas jaulas son tan pequeñas y están tan saturadas, que las gallinas no pueden hacer ninguna de sus actividades naturales o desarrollar comportamientos que son importantes para ellas. Muy frecuentemente, partes de su cuerpo son atrapadas entre las rejas, lo que resulta en huesos fracturados, provoca deformidades y pérdida severa de plumas, además de mucho dolor. Algunas gallinas, exhaustas o incapaces de moverse, son atacadas a muerte debido al estrés en el que viven, por sus propias compañeras de jaula. Es por esto que cientos de compañías a lo largo del mundo están dejando atrás el uso de jaulas. Se están realizando compromisos globales para ser libres-de-jaula por parte de algunas de las compañías más grandes e importantes del mundo, la lista incluye a los hoteles Wyndham, Accor, InterContinental,  así como grandes compañías de alimentos como Unilever, Nestlé, Lidl, Aldi, Aramark, Sodexo, Mondelez y Compass Group. Hasta las cadenas low-end de comida rápida y las cárceles en los Estados Unidos ya están dejando atrás éstas terribles prácticas. Marriott ha reconocido que las jaulas son inhumanas y obsoletas. En el 2013, le prometieron a sus clientes que serían libres-de-jaulas para 2015, y la cadena Marriott recibió gran reconocimiento público por haber realizado ese compromiso de evolucionar hacia mejores estándares de bienestar animal. Tres años después de la fecha límite, las gallinas continúan sufriendo a causa de Marriott. Sus clientes están cansándose de falsas promesas y compromisos vacíos. Incluso Starwood, una marca de Marriott, ya ha hecho ya un compromiso global para excluir por completo las jaulas de su cadena de suministro para el año 2020. Marriott refiere que: “La forma en que hacemos negocios es tan importante como los negocios mismos.”  Los hoteles Marriott necesitan replantear la manera en la que hacen negocios. Necesitan darle cumplimiento y seguimiento a sus propios compromisos y alinearse con los estándares básicos actuales de bienestar animal a nivel mundial. Es tiempo de que Marriott cumpla con su promesa de por fin liberarse al 100% de las atroces jaulas, en todo el mundo. Porfavor ¡firma esta petición para decirle a Marriott que no te hospedarás en ninguno de sus hoteles hasta que dejen de apoyar este atroz abuso hacia los animales!

Marriott: End Hen Cruelty

Marriott: End Hen Cruelty   If Marriott ran its hotels the way its egg suppliers run their factory farms, they would be filthy, small, overcrowded, and dangerous. Marriott brands itself as an upscale and luxurious hotel company, but it has a dark secret. Millions of egg-laying hens throughout Marriott’s global supply chain suffer in cruel cages.  Caged hens farmed for their eggs are trapped in huge sheds in metal cages, crammed together on sloping wire floors, unable to open their wings, stand fully upright, dust bathe or move freely. Each hen has little more floor space than the size of a magazine in which to live her entire life. Her body parts can get caught in the caging, which can result in broken bones, deformities, and severe feather loss. Some hens, exhausted or unable to move, are trampled to death by their cage mates. The confinement of hens in cages is one of the most extreme methods of legalised animal cruelty in New Zealand.   Hundreds of companies around the world are ditching cage eggs. They are listening to caring people who want an end to cage cruelty. Global commitments to go cage-free are being made by some of the largest companies in the world, including Wyndham Worldwide, Accor Hotels, InterContinental Hotels, Hilton Hotels, Unilever, Nestlé, Lidl, Aldi, Aramark, Sodexo, Mondelez, and Compass Group. Even budget fast food companies are moving away from this horrible practice.   Marriott has recognised that cages are inhumane and outdated.

Stop the Warehousing of Homeless People in NYC Hotels | Establish Affordable Housing NOW!

It's time for "We the People" to UNITE!! Vulnerable homeless people and communities of all cultural and socio-economic backgrounds in New York City are casualties of: Continuing Policies that Benefit only a Handful Lack of Safe and Affordable Housing  Political Rivalries and Crossfires Polarizing Figures  Rapid and Excessive Real Estate Development The Mayor and the Department of Homeless Services are proposing a 3rd homeless shelter (52-34 Van Dam Street, Blissville LIC, NY 11101) that would house approximately 350 Homeless Adults in the tiny, isolated and NEGLECTED working-class community of Blissville which is located in the town of Long Island City. Blissville is home to approximately 450 residents: nearly 110 are children. It is also zoned as an industrial/commercial area and is surrounded by warehouses, factories, auto body shops, waste stations, recycling centers, scrap metal yards, a cemetery, freight rail yards, ***NEWTOWN CREEK*** and a correctional facility all no more than a 0.5-mile radius. The Blissville community is already doing their Fair Share with 2 homeless shelters within a 0.3-mile radius. To say that the addition of a third "hotel-to-shelter" facility would change the character of the Blissville neighborhood would be a stark understatement. A 3rd hotel-to-shelter facility would: DOUBLE the Blissville Population Cost the City an exorbitant amount of taxpayer dollars for Sanitation Disposal, Law Enforcement, Environmental, Traffic, Security and Safety concerns for the vulnerable homeless adults, the residents of Blissville as well as neighboring communities Although District 26 was blindsided by DHS's implementation of a 2nd hotel-turned-shelter, Blissville accepted their Fair Share of 54 families who were initially housed in the City View Hotel only to be ousted in a last-minute decision and replaced with 100 Single men overnight by DHS. Furthermore, Blissville residents choose to live here in spite of the more than half-mile distance to basic facilities, the environmental challenges, and neglect from the City. The vulnerable homeless families and individuals don't get to choose their home yet the City chooses to warehouse them in a neighborhood of warehouses and dump them in a neighborhood that has been dumped on for decades.  In conclusion, we stand in agreement with our District 26 Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer: “This is not about demonizing the homeless,” Van Bramer said. “This is about the administration having little to no solution and therefore choosing hotels in Long Island City and Blissville. We are doing more than our fair share.” ***UNITED WE CAN FIGHT THE "GOOD" FIGHT FOR ALL PEOPLE!*** #blissvillenotshelterville #housingnothotels #homesnothomelessness #peoplenotprofits #empathynotapathy

Reimburse Gowanus Arts For Damages Done To Their Arts Center & Loss Of Mural Project; Solve Your Own Soundproofing Issues & Leave Our Musicians Alone!

1. Reimburse Gowanus Arts for the thousands of dollars of repairs they have caused our not-for-profit arts center. 2. Reimburse Gowanus Arts for the $38,000 GROUNDSWELL mural that was denied us by the Marriott not following through on their agreement with us. 3. Insist the Marriott leave our drummers and musicians alone, and solve their own soundproofing issues in a mutually satisfactory manner.It is important to make public the dishonorable, behind-the-scenes actions taken by the Fairfield Marriott and owner/developer Marc Freud and the Troutbook Company. The new 12-story Fairfield Marriott opened its doors in the Gowanus Arts building’s backyard in 2011. During the demolition and construction phase of this hotel, Troutbrook Company, the owner/developers of this property, caused damage to our building, which they deny and refuse to pay for. Recently, the Marriott General Manager sent one of our teachers (also a drummer) in our building a “help me or else” email, requesting her support in silencing the “noise pollution” that he claims is coming from our building and is causing his clients to lose sleep. All manner of musicians have found a rehearsal and performance home at Gowanus Arts since 1985, precisely because it IS located in a non-residential, M1 (Manufacturing) zone. Gowanus Arts has provided a home to artists and arts enthusiasts of all genres since 1985, including musicians of every stripe. Spoke the Hub and Gowanus Arts have been called a "community staple", "neighborhood treasures" and "one of the most exhilirating art spaces in Brooklyn" for our 34 years of artistic trailblazing in this neighborhood. Please help us protect the rights of Gowanus Arts musicians to practice and play music whenever they wish within our studio walls. It is important to say "no" to this kind of behind-the-scenes, corporate bullying and strong-arming.. It is time that the Fairfield Marriott make amends and becomes the "good neighbors", "community builders", and "arts supporters" that they advertise themselves as. Help us encourage the Marriott to solve their own sound-proofing issues in a mutually satisfactory way, and demand they reimburse Gowanus Arts not only for the thousands of dollars of damage they have done to our building, but also for the loss of the grant-funded, $38,000 GROUNDSWELL Mural Project offered to our arts center gratis, yet which they caused to be relocated to another site last summer. Thank you so much for your continued support of the arts and artists who make this one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the country to visit, work, and play in!

End Disposable Plastic Toiletries in Hotels

Plastic waste is news. Big news. For very good reason. The world over we have become very reliant on plastic. It's ubiquitous due to its cheapness and practicality, and, most unfortunately, for its durability. As a result our environment is awash with plastic that will remain for millennia. The fact plastic waste is big news is great. It's driving lots of us to change our habits. To think twice about the plastic we use. Sadly, not everyone is switched on to making changes. Yet. So we have to get our service providers to change habits for us by providing goods that use less, or better still no plastic. One such opportunity for change is the use of small plastic bottles for toiletries in hotels. Some of the budget chains, probably by default, already offer a better alternative with refillable dispensers being used. Even large, multi-use bottles would be better as the relative volume of plastic as a ratio of dispensed soap is significantly better. What I want is a petition, signed by millions (I'm ambitious), that then gets sent to the PR heads of all the major chains, letting them know we want change.

Pinellas County Passenger Rail (Florida Hurricane/Tsunami Relief)

Natural disasters are becoming stronger and more frequent. The only thing worse than a crisis situation is negative human behavior connected to it, which intensifies tragedy. Pinellas County has the highest population density in the sunshine State.  It's a peninsula bordered by Tampa Bay on the east, gulf of Mexico on the west and the mouth on the south. It is better known by the name of  it's two largest cities, St. Petersburg and Clearwater. I am one of 40,000 visually impaired residents here.  The definition of legally blind means an individual cannot obtain a drivers license by law due to their poor ssight. My son has been hesitant to acquire his because of anxiety . On the other hand, my daughter's  procrastination is from depression. Those who can actually operate motor vehicles with no problem will only be able to escape to the north it bridges are compromised  from a major storm.  Me and my kids had no choice but to hunker down during hurricane Maria. News stations reported things like water down fuel sold by unscrupulous gas station operators that crippled cars on already congested roadways.  These same blocked thorough fairs would be useless to those who took Greyhound or chartered tour buses. Then, there were airlines that canceled flights after  excepting payment from customers choosing to flee to safety via sky . Boats are virtually obsolete needing to navigate choppy waters.  The one option currently not available is train service.  This would provide a relatively traffic free exit during emergencies as well as a convenient transportation method during normal business or vacation days. Here is a polite but urgent nudge to politicians and big corporations possibly overlooking low income folks such as retired seniors, military veterans and disabled communities. The 2018 hurricane season is predicted to be extra dangerous.  Able-bodied citizens that voted no on proposals like ObamaRail and greenlight Pinellas should simply picture the streets around this Resort market-metropolitan area during Super Bowl LV for added motivation. Snowbirds and other foreign visitors have a special invitation to participate.

Force NFL Players to respect the practices of the country that provides their lifestyles

The people of the United States provide NFL Players exorbitant lifestyles to play a game for our entertainment and enjoyment. However, they have decided to use their workplace to wage protest against the very symbols and practices that are at the backbone of the system that allows them such excess simply to play a game. Ordinary citizens that did the same in their workplace would suffer disciplinary actions up to, and including, termination of their employment. These are the people that buy the tickets and merchandise that allow for NFL players to live lives of excess that make the lives of their supporters seem like those of mere peasants. We are calling for a boycott of all companies and their subsidiaries that support the NFL Players Association until the organization institutes and enforces policies to force players to stand for our national anthem and national observances as well as enact disciplinary actions that are strictly enforced for those that continue to violate the trust of the country that provides their lifestyle. The people of this effort recognize and respect the value of our rights to protest for the changes we seek in our world but also recognize that the players of the NFL are no different, or better, than the rest of the society they entertain by playing a game. We simply ask that they do it on their time. We seek an immediate and unrelenting boycott of the following companies that support the NFL Players Association with further action to follow if our demands are not met. The NFLPA sponsors are: Anheuser-Busch Barclaycard US Bose Bridgestone Campbell's Soup Company Castrol Courtyard Marriott Dairy Management, Inc. (Fuel Up to Play 60) Dannon Extreme Networks FedEx Frito-Lay Gatorade Hyundai Motor America Mars Snackfood Microsoft Nationwide News America Papa John's Pepsi Procter & Gamble Quaker Verizon Visa USAA Join us as we refuse to spend our hard earned money on the products and services brought to market by these companies and their vast network of subsidiaries.For more information on our cause or to obtain a complete listing of the network of companies and subsidiaries responsible for supporting the NFL Players Association please visit our Facebook page at The Edge Radio.

Marriott: End Hen Cruelty

Marriott International is committed to sourcing 100% cage-free eggs (shell and liquid) throughout our operations for all owned, managed and franchised properties by the end of 2025. This is part of a comprehensive set of goals under our Serve 360 sustainability & social impact platform. Marriott International publicly reports our progress towards this commitment. Specifically, in our most recent Serve 360 report, we shared the progress made by our managed Courtyard-branded hotels to source more than 75% of eggs from cage-free suppliers. We will continue to report our progress annually through our Serve 360 report. We will also publish our goals and major progress against those goals in multiple languages beginning in 2019.

Support Erin Andrews, Boycott the Marriott

We would first like to say that Marriott International remains sympathetic to the ordeal that Erin Andrews went through because of Michael David Barrett’s criminal conduct. There has been much confusion in the media and public conversations about our responsibility for what happened and our involvement in the trial. Here are the facts: • Ms. Andrews was the victim of a terrible crime while she was a guest at the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. Michael David Barrett videotaped her in her guestroom while she was undressed and posted the footage on the internet. Barrett was arrested and served a jail sentence for his crime. • Ms. Andrews later sued our company, the owner of the hotel (which is not Marriott), the franchisee and Michael David Barrett. Our legal team argued that Marriott International had nothing to do with what happened to Ms. Andrews; the Court agreed and completely dismissed Marriott from the case. • We are not and have not been a part of this trial. This trial is between Ms. Andrews and the owner of the hotel, the franchisee and Michael David Barrett. • Our legal team is not among those that have questioned Ms. Andrews during this trial. Additionally, the witness who allegedly viewed the video of Ms. Andrews in a Nashville restaurant earlier this week is a representative for the owner and not a Marriott employee. We continue to be sensitive to the serious nature of this matter and remain committed to the safety and comfort of our guests.

Stop using goose down that may have been cruelly collected

See PETA’s comments on Marriott’s use of down-alternative products: (www.peta.org/blog/leading-retailers-are-ditching-down-thanks-to-peta/) We have had a number of hotel brands, including AC and Moxy, which have down-alternative (synthetic) products as a brand standard. In our Courtyard, Fairfield Inn, Residence Inn, SpringHill Suites and TownePlace Suites brands we provide down-alternative fill exclusively in the blankets and comforters with 50% of the pillows being down-alternative. In our other brands down-alternative products are always available upon request. We have enhanced our policies and training in order to provide a guest room that is free of any down products when requested. Our research continues to show the vast majority of guests prefer down bedding. We will continue to evaluate our product offerings balancing, amongst other things, sustainability and consumer preferences. Please see our 2015 Responsible Sourcing Report to learn more about our efforts. (www.marriott.com/Multimedia/PDF/CorporateResponsibility/2015_Reports/2015_ResponsibleSourcing.pdf)

Stop using goose down that may have been cruelly collected

For some time now, we have had down-alternative (synthetic) pillows, blankets and comforters as a brand standard in a number of our hotel brands. And, in all our brands, we continue to offer upon request a guest room that is free of any down products. In our luxury and lifestyle brands, down alternative products are also available. However, our research shows the vast majority of guests of these brands expect their room offerings to be similar to those in their homes; their preference is down bedding. We have engaged with organizations interested in our providing more down-alternative products to guests so we can continually evaluate our product offerings balancing, amongst other things, sustainability and consumer preferences.
