Ask Hardware Stores to Offer Alternative Products for Rodent Control
In winter, mice and other rodents look for warm, cozy shelter, often in human shelters. Poisons and glue traps cause horrible suffering and threaten children and pets as well as wildlife. Poisons also affect other animals who eat the poisoned animals. Glue traps keep animals in agony for hours. Safe, humane products are available to control rodents (for example, Mr. McGregor's Fence and search Google). Please ask your local hardware store to carry these alternative products and discontinue poisons and cruel traps.
Fair, honest, accurate elections are essential to everything ResponsibleConsumer.net works for: human rights, animal rights and welfare, and environmental protection. For any electoral system to be valid, the process and results must be transparent, and voters must have confidence their votes will be counted accurately. Such a situation does not exist when electronic voting machines are used that produce no paper trail and whose manufacturers will not allow inspection by independent experts. VerifiedVoting.org summarizes the issue, and provides information about what you can do to ensure your vote counts.
Tell the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture to enforce the Humane Slaughter Act
There have been many allegations that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) does a poor job of enforcing the Humane Slaughter Act. Poultry is not even covered by the Act. The Humane Farming Association Campaign to Stop Slaughterhouse Abuse describes heartbreaking atrocities, related by USDA workers, that animals routinely go through in order to arrive looking and smelling clean and tasty on your dinner plate.
