Traditional Medicinals exploits stereotypes of Romani people with their "Gypsy Cold Care" tea. The word "Gypsy" is widely regarded as an ethnic slur. Traditional Medicinals has claimed that their founder was Roma, and when confronted, has blown off criticism over the years with vague pledges to look into the matter. Well, the time has come for TM to do the right thing. Stop playing off stereotypes of the Romani and change the name of this product.

If Trader Joe's can change the offensive names of their products, Traditional Medicinals can remove an ethnic slur from theirs. The solution is simple, and can avoid a boycott.

Please sign to let them know that "Gypsies" are not a made-up people it's OK to exploit for herbal product sales.
