This is to 1 800 flowers, you guys absolutely disgust me. I'm from Brazil, what makes you think you have the right, the nerve to treat people this way. Would you want your friends or family working in these conditions? Would you let your sisters work in an environment where they're sexually assaulted on a daily basis? No! So what makes you think that its ok to let it happen to other people? I'm telling everyone I know what kind of business you run. Absolutely disgusting!

This seems totally BULLSHIT by Change.org. Their email states "Stop the abusive practices of 1-800-Flowers."

But nowhere does it state they actually DO ANYTHING abusive. They imply they do b/c they are a large buyer of flowers and lots of flowers come from areas where abuses happen. That is not to say 1-800-Flowers engages in this? Where is direct link?

Where is 1-800-Flowers' abusive information?

I do not like emails that are designed to illicit a response by using false and/or misleading information.

I also fully support human rights but to imply someone is guilty without proof is not right. With proof, we take action.

I really hope 1-800 Flowers will improve its labor practices. The current situation is unacceptable.

I never buy flowers from the big corporate flower growers, because I don't want to be part of the problem.

Please offer Fair Trade flowers!

To know that you support this abuse is just sad. I will pass along to as many people as I can not to purchase from you because you show no concern for humanity. Please change you business ways and support labor rights.

I will never use this service as I have been hearing and reading disturbing information about the violent mistreatment of my fellow WOMEN.

Further I will make it my mission to spread the word on venues to which I belong such as Facebook.
