TELL LEADING GROCERY GIANTS ACROSS CANADA TO PROTECT WORKERS AND DITCH TOXICS ON RECEIPTS

 

Every day, cashiers across Canada are exposed to high levels of hormone-disrupting bisphenols (like BPA and BPS) from receipts. Canada’s leading grocery retailers, Loblaws, Metro, Sobeys and Walmart, need to protect their cashiers and customers by getting rid of these toxic receipts. Costco Canada is the first, and so far, the only company to commit to phasing out these bisphenols by the end of the year. But we still need you to take action to ensure that the remaining retailers follow through and commit to ditching toxic receipts.

Exposure to bisphenols is increasingly linked to health conditions such as ADHD in children, reproductive health problems, obesity and hormone-related cancers such as breast and prostate cancer. Toxic bisphenols are no longer needed on receipts because safer alternatives, such as bisphenol-free receipts, are readily available.

Everyone deserves a safe and healthy work environment. That’s why we, alongside the largest union representing retail workers, United Food and Commercial Workers Canada (UFCW Canada), Breast Cancer Action Quebec and Mind the Store, urge these companies to take immediate action. 

Tell Loblaws, Metro, Sobeys and Walmart to protect their cashiers and customers by getting rid of receipts coated with hormone disrupting bisphenols today.
