TACO BELL: Don’t let animals suffer. Go cage-free!

Taco Bell is one of the top restaurant chains in the US, expanding into the breakfast business early last year. With new menu items like the Waffle and Biscuit Tacos, Taco Bell is staying competitive with the nation’s breakfast retail leader, McDonald’s. But there’s one area the Taco Bell breakfast menu falls short of the competition: cage-free eggs. On factory farms, egg laying hens are kept in tiny, barren battery cages, unable to express natural behaviors like nesting, dust-bathing, and foraging. Each hen has less space than a standard sized sheet of paper. They may never experience natural light or fresh air, and will never leave their cages until they are gathered for slaughter. Just a few weeks ago, Taco Bell’s main competitor, McDonald’s, announced it was going 100% cage-free, and set a timeline to phase out cruel battery cages from its egg supply chain. Burger King and Starbucks have set deadlines for their cage-free pledges, as well as the food service giants Compass Group, Aramark, and Sodexo. Several states have already banned battery cages. Compassion in World Farming has worked with some of the world’s largest food businesses such as McDonald’s, Walmart, and Unilever to create and improve policies for higher animal welfare. Consumer demand for better treatment of farm animals is here, and many companies have already stepped up to the plate. Taco Bell has already acknowledged its customers care about animals, by introducing a new certified vegetarian menu. The time is now to switch to cage-free eggs! Please sign the petition to ask Taco Bell to purchase only cage-free eggs for its restaurants, and set a deadline for the transition. You are a voice for animals!

Stop including single use plastic cutlery in every fast food take out bag.

Hundreds of take-out fast food restaurants across the country include single use plastic cutlery in a plastic bag with out the customer requesting they even need it for their meal. How many times have you taken the take-out home and use your own utensils and the plastic cutlery just gets thrown in a drawer, recycled or thrown in the trash if recycling isn't accessible?  A 2015 study by Ocean Conservancy scientists and partners found that plastic cutlery are among the most dangerous to ocean animals such as seabirds and turtles, especially as they break up into smaller microplastics. Single-use utensils can take up to 1,000 years to decompose. Most plastic utensils are made of polystyrene, which can release toxic chemicals when heated. This petition is to create a law that would ban including single use plastic cutlery in all take out bags unless requested by the customer. This would help reduce the plastic waste as well as saving take out restaurants thousands of dollars in supply costs.  Some estimates put the number of individual plastic utensils wasted at 40 billion per year in the United States alone. The ultimate goal is to ban single use plastic completely but this would be the first step to banning unnecessary plastic waste.  At each take out and fast food restaurant, there would be a sign saying "plastic cutlery not included in order and is by request only. Re-usable bamboo, wood or metal cutlery is recommended to help reduce plastic waste." Ideally, restaurants will start using biodegradable cutlery and/or sell bamboo cutlery kits to encourage customers to bring their own each time they eat a meal at a restaurant. This is a win win for restaurants, customers and the environment.

Why is Taco Bell supporting SeaWorld animal abuse?

As a Penn State student, Taco Bell is located in the heart of our college town.  It’s always my latenight recommendation when looking for a yummy quick option, since it’s open till 3am.  After learning of Taco Bell’s promotion of discounted tickets to SeaWorld, I decided it no longer will be my night time restaurant recommendation. And I’m going to spread the word to as many friends as I can to tell them to reconsider going to Taco Bell, until they stop promoting SeaWorld. What’s wrong with SeaWorld? SeaWorld keeps dolphins and orcas captive in an environment resembling nothing near their natural environment. While in captivity, the lifespan of these intelligent creatures is shortened, and they live in stress to perform tricks that are unnatural to them. The conditions are so dangerous to people that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration says SeaWorld cannot have trainers in the water with orcas anymore. The documentary Blackfish exposed me to SeaWorld’s horrifying practices towards animals. When I learned of the mistreatment of orcas by SeaWorld, I showed the film to friends on campus and wrote letters to SeaWorld board members requesting that they end their cruel practices.  I was saddened of their terrible treatment of animals, and wanted to do everything I could to stop their practices. But I was even more appalled to learn that Taco Bell is promoting SeaWorld. ‘Yo Quiero’ Taco Bell to stop promoting SeaWorld.  I’m changing my late night restaurant recommendation to avoid Taco Bell until they end their ties with SeaWorld.  And I’m going to tell as many Taco Bell customers to spread the word to avoid going there as well. You can help end the captivity of animals at SeaWorld by sharing this with your friends.

Plastic Polluting our Planet

Hello, everybody. My name is Amanda, and I'm 15 years old. I used to use a plastic straw every single day until I learned some facts about them. In the Los Angeles area alone, ten metric tons of plastic fragments—like grocery bags, straws, and soda bottles—are carried into the Pacific Ocean every day. Over the last ten years, we have produced more plastic than during the whole of the previous century. 50 percent of the plastic we use, we use just once and throw away. Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times. We currently recover only five percent of the plastics we produce. Why is that so bad? Well for starters 46 percent of plastics float (EPA 2006), and it can drift for years before eventually concentrating in the ocean gyres. It takes 500-1,000 years for plastic to degrade. One million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals are killed annually from plastic in our oceans. The body can absorb plastic chemicals—93 percent of Americans age six or older test positive for BPA (a synthetic chemical) Much more information can be found at https://www.ecowatch.com/22-facts-about-plastic-pollution-and-10-things-we-can-do-about-it-1881885971.html http://www.choosetogostrawless.com/ https://thelastplasticstraw.org/about-us/ http://www.plasticpollutioncoalition.org/no-straw-please https://www.banthebottle.net/articles/its-not-just-the-bottle-the-ubiquity-of-the-plastic-straw/ Unfortunately, we can't reverse some of the things we've already done to this beautiful planet. What we can do is make some changes. Anything from asking for no straw, bring a reusable bag, use your own utensils (rather than disposable), buying from farmers markets, use a refillable cup/bottle, to making your staples yourself to avoid plastic can make a world (no pun intended) of difference. What I'm asking today, is that you sign this petition. Not that hard, right? :D I will be sending this request to places like Panera, Starbucks, Safeway, Dunkin Donuts, and more. What I'm asking of them is to use less plastic and styrofoam. To incorporate more recycling cans into their locations. To only give plastic bags to those who ask for them. To use paper straws rather than plastic. To find an alternative to Styrofoam takeout containers. To stop putting things in plastic that doesn't need to be. Have you ever seen the movie Wall-e? It stars a cute little robot who picks up trash. Remember how awful Earth looked? The whole time I was watching that movie I just wanted to go hug a tree (I didn't actually hug a tree). I'm not trying to make anyone feel bad about their choices, I'm just trying to inform! Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope we can work together to make 2018 a much friendlier place (for the people and the planet). <3

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.
