Smucker’s Vice President just said What?

Last week, the Wooster College Voice ran an article highlighting the campaign by dozens of Wooster college students and tens of thousands of Environmental Action members who to tell Smucker's to stop blocking GMO labeling. On Friday, Maribeth Burns, Vice President of Corporate Communications at Schmucker's (The J.M. Smucker Company), responded.  You can view a clipping of the article below, it […]

Tell Smucker’s to Stop Blocking GMO labeling

Rita Frost, a local leader with Environmental Action, started her own petition to get Smucker's to label GMOs in their products and stop spending money on GMO labeling.  Sign and she'll deliver the petitions to Smucker's next week! […]

Hate fracking? You’ll REALLY hate fracking near our state parks

Governor Corbett isn’t listening to Pennsylvanians. During his annual budget address last week, he announced plans to open our state forests and, for the first time, our state parks to fracking in order to fill a one-time budget gap. Corbett's plan would "lease new underground mineral rights near existing drilling sites or through adjacent properties," effectively overturning the moratorium on […]

Our date with Schmucker’s

On Saturday, we had a fun date with Smucker's (but maybe not so fun for them.) Tons of Environmental Action members showed up in their grocery stores, put signs in front of the Smucker's jams, and told the store managers they wanted GMOs labeled in their products. Check out the photo below of one member in Seattle, Washington, where Smucker's […]

LIVE: Planet’s official response to Walmart

  Watch a replay below of our response to Walmart's sustainability milestone meeting. On President's Day, Feb. 17th, Walmart presented what they said was remarkable progress to protect the planet – including announcements from their new CEO Doug McMillon.

One of those times

There's been a lot of emails this weekend from our friends, so I thought it might help to throw out a few clarifications before the Monday events so many of you are planning to attend. First, lets reiterate what we said on Friday: The State Department report is not the final word on KXL. We know that will be a 30-day […]

Update: What’s in the jam, Smucker’s?

There's only two things that gets me more worked up than when a Fortune 500 company trashes the planet.—one is when the company lies about it, and two is when it spends hoards of cash to stop laws that would prevent the ecocide the company is causing. Case in point: Smucker's. Yes, Smucker's, that family-friendly, health-conscious jam company. Smucker's and other […]

Obama’s State of the Union Addresses – Environment Edition

If Obama is really serious about doing something about climate change, his all of the above energy plan, AKA drilling + fracking + renewables, isn't going to cut it. Since 2012 there has been a stark increase in how many times he has mentioned natural gas and oil in his State of the Union addresses. Over the same period, mentions of […]
