Thanks to your concern for agricultural practices, there is hope to calm down animal abuse and chronic health hazards perpetuated by Walmart’s meat section! Congrats for finding this blog. It’s truly down to the count for our beleaguered environment so Walmart should be supporting healthier farming & putting appropriate health warnings on meat, carbon footprint counts, substitution recommendations, MM promotions, Heart attack and cancer threat logos, pictures of the water pollution and manure runoff. Lets get to work in favor of clean water, emissions reductions, and reducing carcinogenic threats.

To build corporate pressure on the Mega retail giant to ACCOUNT, we appeal to use your voice, peak out and film your protest. Try one of these themes!

1) “Germaphobes against super-bugs”: Speak out about the overuse of antibiotics on Factory Farms, all to keeping the animals alive in their cruddy trapped conditions. 80% of antibiotics are used on farm animals and it creates antibiotic resistance. MSRA is a bacterial strain that kill 20K people a year. “Super-bugs” we oppose leave Factory Farm facilities in fecal material, on workers, in the wind even.

2) “Carcinogenic protein warning Brigade” – Look into correlations where meat consumption spikes cancer rates, Read from some of these studies as we call for the Surgeon General to get involved with appropriate warnings. Ask for walmart to work with its suppliers to support less-meat-where-possible initiatives like Meatless Monday thru taxes generated like a sin tax. We need some mechanisms like this kicking is to protect water quality, reduce emissions, and the animal

3) “Manure runoff mitigators & toxic discharge opponents” –  get fired up by these news stories and water pollution discharge reports from Environment America 

This 3/26 editorial says
“Experts estimate that two-thirds of the algae pollution in the western Lake Erie basin is caused by runoff of manure and chemical fertilizers from farms into the lake’s tributaries.” and “Much more work remains to be done — in Columbus, Washington, and communities along Lake Erie — to defeat the algae menace. Ohio can’t do it alone; officials in all states and Canadian provinces along Lake Erie must work together, with a sense of urgency, to reduce phosphorus levels in the lake by the 40 percent that scientists agree is necessary.”
Finally, this editorial from back in October was the First and only of its kind to be published in a major state newspaper, calling out the unsustainable demand for animal products as a major cause. This writer does a great job promoting efforts like meatless monday.
Environment America 2013 Water pollution discharge reports:  Tyson Foods Inc. is the parent-company reporting dumping the largest discharge of toxic chemicals into our waterways, with a total of 18,556,479 lbs – 9 percent of the nationwide total of toxic discharges.
