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!

Mama Sow Liberators: Yell for the Pigs release at the check out lines on a bullhorn. “Animals need our help!” In just a few short minutes of speaking you can really wake people up!! We at Ag Progress beleive in Grassroots. http://bit.ly/1Dsp7Q4
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
4) “Act On Climate, Act ON Farts! Comprehensive Emissions reducers” Speak out about methane emissions from livestock that are especially heat-trapping. Resource stewardship means curbing deforestation and mono-cropping. Livestock emissions reductions coincide with something heart healthy like Meatless Monday, How can we go wrong!
