International Nestle-free Week 2010: Join Us

Today marks the beginning of International Nestle-Free Week 2010. If you are not yet aware of the reasons why people boycott and protest Nestle, here is a summary from my post on why I protest Nestle's unethical business practices:
Nestlé is accused by experts of unethical business practices such as:

Nestlé defends its unethical business practices and uses doublespeak, denials and deception in an attempt to cover up or justify those practices. When laws don’t exist or fail to hold Nestlé to account, it takes public action to force Nestlé to change. Public action can take on many forms, including boycotting Nestlé brands, helping to spread the word about Nestlé’s unethical business practices, and putting pressure on the government to pass legislation that would prevent Nestlé from doing things that put people, animals and the environment at risk.

If you are not already boycotting or avoiding Nestle, consider giving it a try during International Nestle-Free Week. If you are already boycotting or avoiding Nestle, then consider educating your friends and family about it.

Take Action

Here are some things you can do:

Brilliant post, I have also written my Anti-Nestlé post http://www.veryboredincatalunya.com/2010/10/kit-kat-anyone.html and have a McLinky set up for people to add their posts. Let's get this message out there!

Working on a post for this now!

I'm so bummed to learn that Poland Springs is a Nestle company. We used to live very near the Poland Spring source in Maine... and I still drink their water here in NJ - simply because it just tastes good (and of course the convenience factor). Other than that, we don't use any Nestle products...
Will have to stop buying their water. Irked.

I haven't had the chance to finish my post on why we boycott Nestlé but I did get a form letter up for those that would like a sample or something to just copy and paste to share with Nestlé their choice to boycott Nestlé products and why. http://leakyboob.blogspot.com/2010/10/nestle-boycott-form-letter.html.

Don't know if I'll be able to write a post this week, so I'm sharing links via my personal Facebook page, where I can reach folks who don't read blogs like yours. Thanks for the roundup!

I posted mine late last night. I'm so happy that I'm already Nestlé free. The last step for me has been to tell my friends about it and avoid the chocolate.

Here's the link: http://thisisworthwhile.blogspot.com/2010/10/all-you-need-to-know-about-nestle-dont.html

Ahh haha you were already on it. You're good!

Good for you! Unfortunately though, unless you boycott every single food manufacturer out there, these practices will continue. I began learning about the dangers of food additives, preservatives and ingredients touted as being "healthy" not long ago, and was shocked to find that the ONLY companies not using these dangerous ingredients are the small family farms & organic producers.
