Kelly Griffin started this petition to Nestle Purina

Nestle Purina factories across America have reduced the odors that they release into the air after communities spoke up. Let’s make our voices heard and make Mechanicsburg next in line for fresh air!

The Purina factory in Mechanicsburg, PA produces foul odors that negatively impact local residents for miles around. Often times neighbors of the plant cannot open the windows of their homes to enjoy a breeze, sit outside on their decks or porches, walk their dogs, or grill on their patios without being assaulted by offensive odors coming from the plant on Brackbill Blvd. On particularly windy days, the odor permeates our homes, even with all the windows and doors closed. It’s inescapable, it’s frustrating, and it’s time for Nestle to do something about it. 

Steps can and will be taken to reduce the odors, but we have to speak up. These changes have already been made in other communities across the U.S., like in Allentown, PA and Flagstaff, AZ. When enough residents voiced their concerns, Nestle responded with upgrades to their factories that reduced the odors significantly. But the technology isn't cheap - Nestle invested $3 million to reduce odors from their factory in Flagstaff. Nestle isn't going to make these pricey upgrades in Mechanicsburg unless we insist that we deserve clean smelling air, too.

Imagine stepping outside and taking in cool, fresh air - not holding your breath while you walk to your mailbox. Imagine inviting family over for a cookout and not worrying about being chased indoors by a sudden overwhelming stench. The freedom to enjoy being outside is within our reach - we just need to pursue it. Please sign this petition and show your support of fresh air in Mechanicsburg!
