Toxic Taters Calls on McDonald's CEO, Steve Easterbrook, to Meet!
McDonald's made the commitment back in 2009 to cut their use of pesticides. They still haven't met that commitment. So, Toxic Taters has offered to help by sitting down and meeting with them to set the strategy to cut or even eliminate the the pesticide usage on their potato products. Along with 35 different local, state, national, and international organizations, we sent a request to meet. You can see that request here. McDonald's has until September 15th, 2017 to respond. If they choose not to respond or not to meet, we'll need to increase the pressure.
What you can do now:
- Call McDonald's at 1-800-244-6227 and sharing our demands (here is a script).
- Share on social media the message:
- Pesticides, poverty wages, & marketing to kids. @McDonalds & @SteveEasterbrk we’re #notlovinit (TWITTER)
- Demand McDonald's make change and lead the way in fast food by buying pesticide free potatoes, stopping predatory marketing to children, and stopping trapping your workers and their families in poverty! (FACEBOOK)
