Braille labels on most products

I am wanting as many company's as possible to get started in putting Braille labels on their products which will help blind and partially sighted people identify their products. This would include toiletries and food packaging for example, without a braille labels how would we know whether we were using dog shampoo by mistake, this is why braille labels are so important and should be made law.It is already the law to have a Braille label on medication packaging and on some cleaning products especially bleach. 

I feel Blind and partially sighted people should have as much right to access this world as a fully sighted person so adding Braille labels to more products will be a big step up and will aid us to do so. I also feel like in doing this it will help develop Blind and partially sighted peoples' independence. Braille has been around for years and it has not been used anywhere near as much as it should be! Braille was invented for Blind and partially sighted people so it should be used more to help us live our lives as independently as we possibly can.

I would like Morrison’s to be the first company to listen to me as I have had a bad experience in shopping Morrison’s in the past. Because there was once an elderly lady who was a customer snapped and shouted at me just because I accidentally  tripped up a young gentlemen who was also a customer with my long cane. I was with a carer at the time who politely explained to the lady that I am blind and even though the carer explained to the customer, they still snapped and commented on that I should look where I am going. The customer wasn’t looking where he was going either so it wasn’t actually my fault even though the elderly lady made it sound like it was . I was very hurt and saddened by this due to the lack of other people’s understanding towards blind and partially sighted people. I think this is appalling and especially at this day and age more awareness needs to be made to support the blind and partially sighted people. 

We are also wanting pump bottles to be become more available as blind and partially sighted people find them easier to use than a squeezy bottle. As we are less likely to drop the product as they help us to reduce waste. I understand that pumps are hard to recycle but surely there should be an easier way for them to be recycled or for them to be more eco friendly.We are wanting a global change to help people round the world with a blind or visual impairment.
