UPDATE: 6/28/18 5 PM The Boycott worked! Sherwin Williams and Con Agra pulled their ballot measure from the November ballot. Congrats to all.
Paint maker Sherwin Williams has decided to go to the California ballot with a deceptive ballot initiative to erase its liability to the public for poisoning families with lead in its paint. We have decided to boycott Sherwin Williams paint stores.
Will you join us in urging your friends and family to #BoycottSherwinWilliams to #Gettheleadout of paint?
Yesterday’s CBS Morning News traced the travails of a child who was poisoned with lead. Paint makers should apologize and pay their debt to the public, not evade accountability for the harm they cause through deceptive ballot measures.
Boycotts are not easy, but it’s not hard to find other paint to buy that does not bear the Sherwin Williams brand.
Will you support the boycott, share this blog with your friends and family, and.or post some sample messages below on Twitter or Facebook? You can find us on Twitter @ConsumerWD
