Stop And Shop Pals Up with Shell

    1. Ellaine Lurie-Janicki
    2. Petition by

      Ellaine Lurie-Janicki

      West Haven, CT

The petitioners below are asking Stop and Shop to end their relationship with Shell, in selling gas at their gas stations.

 

I am shocked to see this company hooking up with Shell for gas. Shell is responsable for many spills they refuse to clean up and are now looking to drill in the artic. Not only will they not take responsabililty for a spill but they will destroy the habitat and the endangered species living there,all in the name of money.

Stop and Shop is owned by Ahold a company based in The Netherlands. As stated on their website:

.Our ambition is to reduce our environmental footprint. We are working to reduce the environmental impact of our own operations. Reducing our energy consumption and refrigerant leakage enables us to lower our carbon footprint and reduce our operating costs. We are also looking at ways to reduce waste and improve our waste management processes, which together reduce our environmental footprint. This can also save costs and – through recycling – generate revenue.

Stop and Shop is a giagantic grocery store serving New  England and has always shown a respect for people in their empoyment and their customers and to start doing business with Shell goes against their good standing.

      The petitioners below are asking Stop and Shop to end their relationship with Shell, in selling gas at their gas stations.

      I am shocked to see this company hooking up with Shell for gas. Shell is responsible for many oil spills they refuse to clean up and are now looking to drill in the Arctic. Not only will they not take any responsibility for a spill but they will destroy the habitat and the endangered species living there,all in the name of money.

      Stop and Shop has always shown a respect for people and the environment (environmental protections to keep our air and water clean are also important for public health -- no one wants to breathe dirty air or drink dirty water that can make people sick our air and tap water is cleaner than Third World nations like India, China etc yet there are still polluters willing to dirty them up) environmental protection is also tied to public safety. The explosion of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig for example led to the deaths of some workers. Public safety, public health and the environment are all important.

      Doing business with Shell goes against Stop and Shop's good standing. Supporting conservation, increased development, storage, distribution and use of renewable, affordable, alternative clean energy sources, and higher fuel efficiency/energy efficiency standards can help make the U.S. more energy independent and less attached to dirty fossil fuels.
