Petition to Donald Trump

End the Occupation of Our Public Lands by Livestock

to end the killing of canis lupus which results from wolves killing cattle however it is not really that simple,you see these cattle once turned out to graze actually cause the wolves natural prey animals such as Deer and Elk and depending upon the State Big Horn Sheep and Antelope to Leave the area meaning wolf territory. regardless of the Natural prey for the particular geography the Point is these essential to Maintaining Diversity and Sustainability Wolves are left with only 2 choices either Starve and let the Pack Starve or take what is Available which is Invasive Destructive Cattle..  time after time we have watched as Wildlife officials side with the cattle and the end result has been the eradication of entire packs of  keystone predators wiped out behind a invasive species that competes for the same exact forage as the natural prey animals and the unfair advantage being taken of wolves is a potential ecological nightmare just waiting for the inevitable final straw that leads to collapse of the natural world that will result from the removal of Wolves from the North American landscape again and might i remind you all,You tried this in the 30s and were nearly successful in eradicating gray wolves in the lower 48 states but in the mid 90s We began to put together the puzzle pertaining to our imbalanced ecosystems in several states Idaho and Montana in particular gray wolves were reintroduced into both northern Idaho and the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem in both cases the ecological and biological elements recovered and diversity had been restored however,Sustainability of these ecosystems wherein wolves reside is still out of reach because cattle are leading to their native homes no longer being safe as long as ranchers are being rewarded and reimbursed by the federal government for all losses to depredations regardless of the species found to be at fault why then do they insist wolves must die?  to level the playing field giving the home advantage back to wolves cattle must be removed to allow natures guardians of diversity and sustainability to keep our nations wild animal populations such as Deer and Elk and Big Horn Sheep healthy and abundant for all future generations

Petition to unfi

UNFI to switch to reusable pallet wrap

Weavers Way is a food cooperative located in Philadelphia. We are members of the NCG, National Cooperative Grocers. As members of the NCG we ask that this petition be made available to other food coops who are also members of the NCG. We ask that all coop members sign who would like to see UNFI switch from using disposable pallet wrap to a reusable pallet wrap. Why is this important? The NCG represents more than 200 food cooperatives in more than 37 states. Many of these coops get deliveries almost every day of the week. Can we imagine how much pallet wrap ends up being produced.  The claim is that when a cooperative becomes a member of the NCG there are the benefits to the coop, one being that the NCG provides a powerful advocacy voice between coops. Well we are asking that the NCG show us how powerful that unifying voice can be by assisting in the sharing of this petition.  We coop members are concerned with specific behaviors adopted by the grocery industry. One being that we do not like the excessive amount of plastic used in pallet wrapping. We ask that UNFI switch to a reusable pallet wrap. Plastic pallet wrap, though deemed recyclable, is not sustainable and should be avoided. The collective food cooperative body does not like this wasteful practice and asks for it to be changed by the first of the calendar year of 2019 for every food cooperative that belongs to the NCG.  By signing this petition we are in agreement with this motion.
