#putPLANETbeforePROFIT Companies must eliminate non essential plastic from products & pac

We all know that uncontrolled use of plastic is a disaster from a health and environmental perspective and is a serious challenge to us, our future generations and all life on the planet. Poor and developing countries and poorest of poor are the biggest victims. Yes but dont forget eventually the monster of unsustainable living will devour everyone here. While we are banning plastic bags which are used by small vegetables vendors and shop keepers, the big companies are having a free run and continue to propogate the unmitigated disaster. Their tall claims and talk on sustainability and being purpose driven not withstanding- which in that case becomes quite meaningless and merely a PR exercise or action taken when really forced to. Humans dont need those plastic water bottles like Bisleri, Aquafina, Pure Life, Evian, Kinley etc. It is causing far more harm than good. We must find better ways of delivering clean water.  We dont need those plastic lined packs used to pack 50 grams of chips which are harmful, unhealthy and exorbitantly priced. We dont need those supari, chutki, cadbury, manikchand etc in small plastic pouches. Companies like Amazon are using huge amounts of plastic to deliver their products. Even when I used plastic bags I never used the kind of single use plastic and thermocol etc. It 10 times or much more !! Just about 15 years ago we didnt buy our daals and rice in plastic bags and we didnt have all the stuff packed in huge amounts of plastic. We wont die if we dont do that today but we will certainly kill ourselves and the planet if we dont act fast ! A bit of inconvenience (if at all) is a tiny price to save our environment. Else we face an unmitigated disaster and unthinkable misery to humans and all life forms.   We must pass laws to make sure 1. In a short span time they move to sustainable packaging and maximum recycling. - It is perfectly fine if we dont get 50 grams of potato sold as unhealthy chips sold at extortionate kind of prices - It will be great if we get rid of those plastic bottles use to pack those extremely unhealthy soft drinks.  - Companies like Amazon must find better ways of delivering products else the world is better of without them. The world doesnt need Amazon, Amazon needs the world !

Stop all’invasione dell’olio di palma

Dallo scorso 13 dicembre milioni di consumatori italiani ed europei hanno scoperto la presenza di un nuovo ingrediente in migliaia di prodotti alimentari. Stiamo parlando dell’olio di palma, una sostanza fino a oggi camuffata dietro la scritta “olii e grassi vegetali”. Per rendersi conto di quanto l’olio di palma sia diffuso basta dire che è il grasso principale di quasi tutte le merendine, i biscotti, gli snack dolci e salati, le creme… in vendita nei supermercati. L’ampio utilizzo di questa materia prima è dovuto sia al costo estremamente basso, sia al fatto di avere caratteristiche simili al burro. Il Fatto Alimentare dice “no” all’olio di palma per motivi etici, ambientali e di salute e invita le aziende a sostituirlo con altri oli vegetali non idrogenati o burro. 1) La produzione di palma è correlata alla rapina delle terre e alla deportazione di milioni di famiglie africane e asiatiche (land grabbing). È inoltre causa primaria della deforestazione di aree boschive (prima causa di emissioni di CO2 nel Sud-Est asiatico) e della devastazione degli “habitat” naturali per lasciare spazio alle monocolture come quelle della palma da olio. Queste operazioni comportano gravi violazioni dei diritti umani, l’eliminazione della sovranità alimentare e la riduzione della biodiversità. Per stemperare le problematiche e ripulire l’immagine dell’olio di palma esiste una certificazione sostenibile (RSPO), che tuttavia copre solo una quota minima della produzione, senza neppure mitigare i problemi denunciati. 2) L’olio di palma viene utilizzato dalla maggior parte delle aziende alimentari perché costa poco e si presta a molti utilizzi. Secondo i nutrizionisti l’assunzione giornaliera di dosi elevate di questo ingrediente può risultare dannosa per la salute a causa della presenza dei grassi saturi. Questa ipotesi si verifica più spesso di quanto si creda, visto che il palma si trova nella maggior parte degli alimenti trasformati, soprattutto in quelli più consumati dai giovani. Anche se in Italia non esistono studi sul consumo pro-capite, i nutrizionisti consigliano di limitarne l’assunzione, in particolare ai bambini che sono i più esposti. Il Fatto Alimentare chiede al Ministero della salute e agli enti pubblici di disporre l'esclusione dalle pubbliche forniture di alimenti che contengano olio di palma. Questa clausola deve essere inserita in tutti i capitolati di appalto per l'approvvigionamento delle mense scolastiche, ospedaliere e aziendali, nonché dei distributori automatici collocati in scuole e pubblici edifici. Chiediamo al Ministero delle politiche agricole e agli altri Stati membri dell'Unione Europea di aderire subito alle Linee Guida del CFS (Committee on World Food Security) - FAO, per una gestione responsabile delle terre, delle foreste e dei bacini idrici. Chiediamo ai supermercati di escludere dalle forniture dei prodotti con il loro marchio (private label) l’olio di palma. Chiediamo alle industrie agroalimentari di impegnarsi a riformulare i prodotti senza l’utilizzo di olio di palma, affinché il cibo “made in Italy” possa davvero distinguersi come buono e giusto.

Pide a los anunciantes de Telecinco que retiren su publicidad #TodosconPablo

Pablo Herreros se mojó para evitar el pago a criminales y sus familiares en la televisión. Ahora Telecinco sorprendentemente quiere hacérselo pagar. Telecinco ha puesto una querella por amenazas y coacciones contra Pablo Herreros por la campaña que lanzó para pedir a los anunciantes del programa La Noria que retirasen su publicidad, tras ver en ese programa a la madre del Cuco, uno de los implicados en el asesinato de Marta del Castillo, a la que pagaron 10.000 por esa entrevista. Además de su progenitora, Rosalía García era responsable civil de su hijo, que en aquel momento era menor. Pablo fue valiente y dio la cara para denunciar ese hecho, para evitar el dolor de familias como la de Marta, para conseguir un poco de ética en los contenidos de la televisión. Muchas personas le secundamos y avalamos. Y ahora Telecinco, parte de uno de los mayores grupos de comunicación de Europa, parece querer vengarse contra una persona que simplemente denunció lo que le pareció injusto. Conozco a Pablo desde hace muchos años. Sé que un hombre bueno, y como su padre, es un luchador por la justicia. Telecinco quiere acallar su voz y no debemos permitírselo. Por eso quiero pedirte que firmes esta petición y pidas a las principales marcas que se anuncian en la cadena -L'Oreal, P&G, Ferrero, García Carrión, Carrefour etc -que hagan ver a Telecinco lo terriblemente injusto de esta acción y que retiren su publicidad hasta que Telecinco retire la querella contra Pablo. Estas marcas no pueden contribuir a financiar a una cadena que acosa a los ciudadanos que luchan por un mundo mejor, no pueden dar ni un euro más a quienes quieren poner el dinero por delante de la moral, no pueden contribuir con su publicidad al linchamiento de una persona buena como Pablo. Firma esta petición y difunde la campaña. El año pasado, 30.000 personas conseguimos que todas las marcas se retirasen de La Noria. Ahora necesitamos una ola aún mayor, cientos de miles de personas que hagan entender a las marcas que no deben financiar una gran cadena que quiere aplastar a la persona que se rebeló contra ella.

Stop Nestle from draining 1.2 million gallons/day from Ginnie Springs

Nestle wants to renew a permit bought from Seven Springs. Up till now about .2 million/gallons a day is what has been extracted from the facility near Ginnie Springs however the permit already allows up to 1.2 - 1.7 million gallons a day. Now Nestle bought Seven Springs bottling plant and will be seeking renewal.  Resist this permit until we see a financial projection of how much they will need daily as well as a risk assessment of our wetlands or over all health of the state aquifers which supports their volume requests. A large corporation may possibly push the limits of this permit or violate the permit altogether as they have in Tampa, FL and California. We need to slow them down and keep them accountable! Potential risks include: Deterioration of water quality, lowering the water table reducing residential well water supplies, reduction of water to other streams and lakes in the state, destruction of ecosystems and wetlands, loss of support below soils creating sink holes. Although Nestle will pay Seven Springs for the water they bottle at the Ginnie Springs plant the city or state do not benefit from the water sales. They gain all profits, we lose our ecosystems, well supplies and local watering hole without any financial gain to the state. edited :8-12-19 for accuracy based on new information obtained since petition was created.

Tell DiGiorno Pizza to Stop Supporting Horrific Animal Cruelty

Every DiGiorno pizza comes with a slice of cruelty. A breaking Mercy For Animals investigation reveals sadistic animal abuse at Wisconsin-based Wiese Brothers Farms—a major DiGiorno pizza cheese supplier. MFA’s hidden-camera footage reveals:   - Workers viciously kicking, beating, and violently whipping cows in the face and body   - Sick or injured cows suffering from open wounds, infections and injuries left to suffer without proper veterinary care   - Workers dragging cows by their fragile legs and necks using chains attached to a tractor   - Filthy conditions, including feces-covered floors that cause cows to regularly slip, fall and injure themselves   - Baby calves being dragged away from their mother immediately after birth and having their tails docked without any painkillers Unfortunately, these abuses are merely a sample of the ongoing cruelty and violence documented at this DiGiorno cheese supplier. Due to the company’s complete lack of oversight and meaningful animal welfare standards, DiGiorno is responsible for the culture of cruelty and neglect festering at this dairy factory farm.  No socially responsible corporation should support dairy operations that beat, kick, mutilate, drag and neglect animals. DiGiorno must take immediate action to prevent further abuse by its suppliers. DiGiorno has the power and the ethical responsibility to help end some of the worst forms of animal cruelty in the dairy industry. Please join Mercy For Animals in calling on DiGiorno to immediately implement meaningful animal protection guidelines for all dairy suppliers, including zero tolerance for animal abuse, care for “downers,” and an end to mutilations without painkillers. Thank you.

#RecallMAGGI Noodles from the market! Don't Feed Lead!

We are a nation of #Maggi lovers! I was shocked to know that high levels of MSG and lead were found in Maggi. Apparently the levels of lead were seven times more than what is allowed.   I am speechless and outraged because too much MSG and lead causes severe health problems! I cannot see our children and youth face the scenario of being afflicted with learning difficulties, vomiting, headache, nausea and breathing problems. Nestle needs to become responsible to its customers and cannot sell substandard products.  When Lucknow Food Safety and Drug Administration (FDA) found lead and MSG, I was horrified. Maggi is poisoning our generation and Nestle needs to take action immediately! Sign my petition and ask Nestle to recall Maggi from the market! We want Maggi that does not make us sick. In the past, Nestle has recalled Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Chip Ice Cream in USA, Kit Kat chunky peanut butter bars​, Kit Kat chunky hazelnut bars, Kit Kat chunky choc fudge bars​, Kit Kat chunky caramel bars, Kit Kat chunky hazelnut multipack, ​Kit Kat chunky collection giant egg​; all from UK, Germany, Switzerland, Malta, Austria, Singapore, the Philippines and Canada​.Nestle can do this for Maggi as well. If thousands of customers demand Nestle to recall Maggi, they will have to rise above profiteering and prove that it values the lives of its Indian customers!They have recalled products in developed countries before. Nestle can not sell substandard products in India either!Sign my petition and share it with your friends.Let’s hold Nestle accountable and make Maggi MSG and lead free!

Pide a Nestlé que no extraiga 4.1 millones de litros diarios del manantial en recuperación

Nestlé quiere renovar el permiso por la compra de Seven Springs. Hasta ahora, se extraían más de 757.000 litros de las cercanías de Ginnie Springs aunque el permiso ya establece un máximo de entre 4.5 millones de litros al día. Ahora Nestlé ha comprado una planta de envasado en Seven Springs y quiere lograr la renovación de los contratos.  Queremos que no se conceda este permiso hasta que veamos una proyección de cuánta agua se va a extraer cada día, así como una evaluación de los riesgos para nuestros humedales o la salud de los acuíferos de la zona. Una gran empresa como esta podría superar los límites de extracción o violar estos permisos por completo como ya se ha hecho en Tampa, Florida y California. ¡Necesitamos parar esto y que se hagan responsables del daño que se puede causar al medio ambiente! Entre estos riesgos está el deterioro de la calidad del agua, la disminución de la capa freática, la reducción de los suministros de los pozos residenciales o la reducción del agua de otros arroyos y lagos del estado, así como la destrucción de ecosistemas y humedales.  Aunque Nestlé pague a Seven Springs por el agua que embotellan en la planta de Ginnie Springs, la ciudad o el estado no se beneficia de esas ventas del agua. Obtienen todas las ganancias y perdemos nuestros ecosistemas o los suministros de pozos y abrevaderos locales sin que haya ninguna ganancia financiera para el Estado.

Nestlé: End Cruel Dehorning of Cows and Churn Out Vegan Options!

I recently worked undercover for Compassion Over Killing inside a massive Pennsylvania dairy factory. Instead of the frolicking “happy cows” we are shown in dairy commercials, at Martin Farms I documented extreme violence toward defenseless baby calves and mother cows, treated as nothing more than milk-producing machines—violence that was more horrific than anything I’d ever seen before. COK was determined to find out how this cruelty was making its way to American consumers—so we followed a truck carrying Martin Farms’ miserable milk straight to one of the world’s largest ice cream plants, churning out Dreyer’s, Edy’s, and Häagen-Dazs ice cream for the world's largest food and dairy company: Nestlé.On this filthy, crowded factory farm, I saw workers hoist cows who were unable to walk or stand by their hips with metal clamps and drag them by tractor. A manager shot one “downer” cow in the head, and she remained conscious for almost a minute before the fatal shot. I will never forget the screams I heard as this manager sadistically stabbed a cow over and over with a sharp instrument in a botched attempt to supposedly treat a stomach ailment—without any sedation or pain relief.Every day at Martin Farms was like a living nightmare. Some “downer” cows were killed and butchered on site, their meat distributed to workers in garbage bags. Others were sprayed in the face with scalding hot water, kicked, stomped on, or hit by workers, and cows with prolapsed uteruses and open sores were denied even basic veterinary care. One cow had her teat sliced off.When alerted to the abuse I documented, Nestlé responded that it immediately severed ties with Martin Farms. However, the company has still failed to address the systemic nature of the issues our investigation uncovered.What I captured on video at Martin Farms exposes brutal yet everyday practices that can be seen inside dairy farms across the country: bloody hoof trimming; the heartbreaking separation of day-old calves from their loving mothers; and hot irons being burned into calves’ flesh to permanently destroy their horns and growth tissue in a cruel process known as “dehorning” or “disbudding,” used at 94% of US dairies. At Martin Farms, calves are tied up as a red-hot iron is pressed down on the sensitive nerves in their heads for several minutes—without any pain relief.Veterinary expert Dr. Holly Cheever called my footage of this gruesome dehorning and disbudding “a glaring example of dairy mismanagement that results in cruelty” and concluded that the “calves are in agonizing pain, shown by their violent thrashing and bellowing.”Investigations like mine and COK’s 2017 footage from another Pennsylvania dairy farm show just how common cruelty is in this industry. That’s why we are urging Nestlé to step up as an industry leader rather than attempt to simply wash its hands clean of the abuse caught on hidden camera on this one farm.To most of the dairy industry, painful horn removal is considered “standard practice”—the hidden price of producing cheap milk for millions of consumers. But in 2014, Nestlé announced an animal welfare policy that was lauded as one of the most progressive of its time, including a commitment to eliminate dehorning of older calves entirely, as well as ending the painful removal of horn tissue of younger calves (disbudding) without anesthesia. Yet the manufacturing giant aimed for only 80 percent compliance in its supply chain by 2020—a full six years after issuing this commitment.Even with an anesthetic, studies have found that these vulnerable young calves, often only weeks old, respond with elevated stress hormones once the medications wear off. And the excruciating pain from having their sensitive horns and horn tissue burned from their heads can last days or even weeks.Farms could prevent this terrifying mutilation entirely by choosing cows who do not grow horns, as has been recommended by both the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Association of Bovine Practitioners. But the dairy industry is dragging its feet, with only 2 percent of farms making the switch. As the world’s largest food and dairy company, Nestlé has the ability—and the responsibility—to implement immediate systemic changes to push the dairy industry forward by eliminating the cruel removal of calves’ horns and horn tissue for its products once and for all.The dairy industry’s profits depend on a cycle of cruelty: Like all mammals, in order to produce milk, a cow must have recently given birth. Female cows are repeatedly forcibly impregnated and have their day-old babies ripped from their side so that their milk can be used for humans.After spending years mired in their own waste and suffering routine abuse, their 20-year natural lifespan is cut short when their exhausted, depleted bodies are no longer considered useful and they are sent to slaughter for beef, largely low-grade meat like hamburger, at just five years old. And their calves fare no better: Males often spend several months confined to a crate or tiny pen before being slaughtered for veal, while females endure the same suffering as their mothers.Millions of consumers are discovering the best way we can spare gentle cows from abuse in the dairy industry: keeping the milk they produce for their babies out of our shopping carts. In response to this surging demand, The Economist recently named 2019 the “year of the vegan.” Non-dairy milks already comprise 13 percent of total milk sales, and the market for plant-based milk products is projected to double in size over the next four years to $30 billion in 2023.As droves of conscious consumers choose vegan food, Nestlé can no longer afford to play a passive role with just an occasional new vegan product launch. If the food giant truly wants to maintain its role as a global food leader, it must help pave the way for the plant-based revolution by shifting its supply chain significantly toward vegan ingredients.Please join me today in urging Nestlé to take a slice out of milk’s misery by immediately ending the gruesome and unnecessary disbudding and dehorning of calves in its supply chain—and churning out more vegan products, starting with dairy-free Dreyer’s and vegan Edy’s ice cream.In solidarity,“Sam”Undercover Investigator, Compassion Over Killing P.S. The easiest way you can protect cows, and all animals, from this abuse is to try healthy and delicious vegan eating. Click here to get started!

Remove Palm Oil From Products

Dear Nestlé,   Palm oil is found in the majority of items we encounter on an everyday basis. We use these items without the knowledge of the consequences they impose on the environment and our ecosystem. To understand how often we use these products we need to know what palm oil is found in. Some products that we use on a daily basis that contain palm oil include bread, makeup, shampoo, chocolate and much more. The cost of palm oil brings high profits to large corporations, some of which include: Starbucks, McDonalds, Dunkin Donuts, Subway, and many more. Nestlé is one of the largest users of palm oil because of their products that have a high concentration of palm oil such as their special chocolate, candy, and different self-care and pet-care products. The high profits that are being collected by companies cause ignorance toward a problem of extinction of orangutans. Suffering of the forest and death the of orangutans are being ignored. The fires that are burning down forests are releasing CO2 into the environment which has a negative effect on all living things. Palm oil obviously has a negative effect in multiple areas, therefore, we must REMOVE PALM OIL FROM PRODUCTS.  Indonesia’s forests are currently under destruction by these specific palm oil companies. According to Abrahm Lustgarten, a writer for The New York Times, “The fastest method was to rip out the forests with excavators and torch what remained. In 2015, the fires spread out of control. Kalimantan — and most of Indonesia, for that matter — was overwhelmed by billowing clouds of smoke and ash, visible from hundreds of miles away.” The fires that are burning the forests down are causing the deaths of many animals that inhabit the area. This is a major wildlife crisis that we need to end. According to Ceren Senkul, a news reporter for Sky News reveals, “the mass production of palm oil is linked to deforestation, habitat loss, climate change and animal cruelty.” Orangutans are being displaced, away from their families. These voiceless and confused animals are being cleared from their homes and their food supply. Unfortunately, with the continuation of these palm oil companies invading the homes of the orangutans, we will not have these friendly creatures in our ecosystem. Orangutans have the ability to eat the fruit on the trees and then disperse the seeds. This specific behavior preserves and continues the growth of forests in Indonesia. Without the orangutans, the balance in the ecosystem will be bothered. The fires are releasing CO2 into the air which is causing global warming to occur faster; resulting in the decline of our ecosystem. According to Jay Michaelson, a writer for Blood and Palm oil, “each day in Indonesia, forest fires release as much carbon dioxide as the entire United States. The fires have been burning since July, thanks to a combination of slash-and-burn land clearing, flammable peat soil, and El Niño.” Although these fires are not occurring in our own backyards, we will soon experience the currently unseen effects. The CO2 that is released from the fires cause a more severe impact to the environment; a potential greater effect than greenhouse gases that we are currently experiencing. The effects of what are occurring right now will soon add up and cause illnesses like heart disease, lung diseases, and asthma, among the families in Indonesia. Currently, we are unable to capture the long term effects that will occur among the entire world. There is a much needed solution to this ongoing problem that has recently captured the eyes of the media. Senkel claims, “No. Palm oil can be grown without destroying rainforests, so if you opt for products which contain sustainable palm oil there is no need to boycott anything, just alter your choices.” The choice is yours; we can stop the production of palm oil. We can stand up for the animals and call for a safer choice to substitute for palm oil. The choice and power is in our hands.   Sincerely, Emily Shirvanian

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!

#RecallMAGGI Noodles from the market! Don't Feed Lead!

Thank you for contacting us regarding MAGGI in India. We have read your petition and appreciate receiving your feedback. As you have noted, we have already issued a withdrawal of MAGGI noodles from the market in India due to an environment of confusion for consumers and while we work with the authorities to clarify the situation. We agree that India is a nation of MAGGI lovers and the trust of you, our consumers, is extremely important to us. Our highest priority is the safety and quality of our products, which undergo rigorous testing before being allowed on the market. Please rest assured that in India we have the same stringent safety policies as everywhere else in the world. Nestlé India have conducted tests on around 1,000 samples of MAGGI in our own laboratories and asked an independent lab to assess a further 600 product samples – representing a total of 125 million packets of noodles. These tests found that lead levels were well within food safety limits specified by Indian authorities. We do not add MSG to MAGGI noodles in India, however the product contains glutamate from hydrolysed groundnut protein, onion powder and wheat flour. Glutamate produces a positive result in a test for MSG. For now, MAGGI has been withdrawn from the market. We are working hard to resolve this situation and aim to have your favourite noodles back on shelves as soon as possible. For more information, please see this dedicated page: http://bit.ly/1Jk5Moz Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We appreciate your trust and will do all we can to keep it. Best wishes, The Nestlé India team
