Earlier in June, we sent letters to leading Canadian retailers urging them to
commit to switching to bisphenol-free receipts by the end of the year.
Exposure to bisphenols (including BPA and BPS) is increasingly linked to health
conditions such as obesity, ADHD in children and hormone-related cancers such as
breast and prostate cancer.
These retailers have not responded to our letters with a commitment to switch to
safer alternatives. That’s why we’re targeting the leading grocery stores in Canada to take
immediate action. Costco, Loblaws, Metro, Sobeys and Walmart employ thousands of
cashiers and workers who handle hundreds of receipts on a daily basis.
Sign this petition and join us in demanding that Costco, Loblaws, Metro, Sobeys
and Walmart stop using receipts coated with bisphenols!
We’ve partnered with the largest union representing retail workers, United Food
and Commercial Workers Canada (UFCW), Breast Cancer Action Quebec and the Mind
the Store campaign to pressure these retailers to take action.
Everyone should have the right to a safe and healthy work environment. Join us in telling these leading grocery stores that it’s unacceptable to
expose their workers to harmful chemicals.
