Green Divas Action: Tell Walgreens to Get Tough on Toxic Chemicals

4 57

Mind the store Walgreens toxic chemicals

Join thousands of people on this national day of action demanding safer products from Walgreens.

Concerned parents, health professionals and others are heading to nearly 50 Walgreens stores nationwide today to voice their concerns about the company’s failure to take action on toxic chemicals in their products.

Send Walgreens a unified message: we want the company to be a real leader and take our health seriously!

We shouldn’t need a PhD in chemistry when shopping for safe products. It’s hard enough to remember to bring the shopping list, now we have to study product labels and figure out if what we’re buying is free of toxic chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, learning disabilities, and other serious health problems.

Walgreens has the power—and the moral responsibility—to ensure that all of the products it sells do not contain dangerous chemicals harmful to our health.

TAKE ACTION today with Green Divas and Dudes across the country!

Here’s all you need to do:

Thanks for helping Green Divas make a difference!

P.S. If you don’t have time to get into a Walgreens, please sign the letter online.

A Fierce Green Fire

Spanning 50 years of grassroots and global activism, this Sundance documentary brings to light the vital stories of the environmental movement where people fought – and succeeded – against enormous odds. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to fighting toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace to Chico Mendes; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization, A Fierce Green Fire is “nothing less than the history of environmentalism itself.” (Los Angeles Times). Official Selection Sundance Film Festival.

Overfed and Undernourished

“We live in a world with increasing levels of Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes and Obesity. Over 70% of foods we consume on a daily basis are processed, and according to the World Health Organization, if current trends continue one billion people will be obese by 2030.

With our fast paced lives, we have become reliant and connected to devices, TVs, computers, tablets and smartphones and disconnected with the natural world, and the people around us.

“Overfed & Undernourished” examines modern lifestyles and a global epidemic through one boy’s inspiring story to regain his health from the inside out. After heartache, Liam, weighing in at over 80kgs (176lbs) turns to his Aunty & Uncle for help, and embarks on a journey where we witness the highs and lows, a family unite for a common cause, and the promise of transforming his life forever.

With 25% of children and 74% of adults obese or overweight, Liam’s problem is not uncommon, but, as the film illustrates, the treatment is more readily attainable than most people think.

This ground breaking documentary is interspersed with interviews and advice from leading health and wellbeing experts from around the globe and provides us with simple solutions to improve the quality of our diet, lifestyle, and personal bonds, ultimately asking us the fundamental question – are we really nourishing ourselves?

Featuring: Joe Cross (Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead), Dr. John Demartini (The Secret), Dr. Anthony Gollé, Dr. Arne Rubinstein and Don Tolman."
