Walmart Boycott

Delta Galil produces the clothing sold by Walmart:

Delta Galil operates in the illegally occupied territory.  Delta Galil “ . . has a warehouse in the Barkan industrial zone, which is an Israeli settlement in the occupied West Bank.  Delta also has shops in two israeli settlements in the West Bank: Ma’aleh Adumim and Pisgat Ze'ev.”

Delta Galil’s sales for 2014 reached 1 billion.  Their income is growing, because of their sneaky strategies:  Also see: 

Delta Galil is a stealth operator, whose primary business is producing clothing that is sold around the world under other brand names.  Delta Galil produces much of the clothing sold under Walmart’s house brands, which include products labeled George, Baby George, George Baby, Faded Glory, No Boundaries, NOBO, Simply Basic, and Starter.

Additionally, Delta Galil’s Walmart products are also sold under the brand names ‘Organically Grown’ and ‘Organically Grown Kids:’

Delta Galil admits paying slave wages for profit and genocide:  “Delta Galil’s CEO Dov Lautman explains frankly, ‘There’s no way you can sew in any western country, not even in Israel where labor costs are too high.’ The average monthly salary of $1,000 in Israel is incomparable to the $100—$150 that capitalists like Lautman can pay Jordanian women in the industrial zones. Lautman explains the convenience of the trade zones for Israeli capitalists like himself, who can leave Tel Aviv by car at six in the morning, arrive at Irbid in northern Jordan by nine, and be back in Haifa on the Mediterranean coast by three in the afternoon. The trade zones are also thought to alleviate the ‘population momentum bomb,’ owing to the fact that the Arab women who work in the zones for slave wages will be less likely to have large families if they are employed.

Walmart isn’t Innocent

Walmart leads the world in labor exploitation:

Walmart drives up U.S. taxes by paying low wages.  “ . . .  every Walmart store in America  costs citizens $1.7 million in welfare benefits such as food stamps. Taxpayers are effectively subsidizing the retailer for its failure to pay employees a living wage.”

Walmart pushes small local businesses into bankruptcy.  “The material benefit [of below cost pricing] to consumers is marginal and temporary, but the restriction of competition by placing unfair obstacles before medium-sized retailers is clear and lasting . . .”

Walmart also leads the U.S. in environmental destruction.  It is one of the largest, fastest growing climate polluters in America. Walmart and their owners fund politicians who consistently vote against environmental protections and they are working hard at generating more trash for landfi­lls:

  2. Support Palestinian Olive Growers and wash your hair without chemicals! I wash my hair with diluted Certified Organic - Fair Trade Certified - Dr. Bronner's liquid soap. It’s the only product I have used to wash my hair, myself, my clothes, and for household cleaning for many years. Guess what? It is made with organic, fair trade, Palestinian Olive Oil! It is better for you, better for the planet, and better for Palestine too! I buy the 32 oz size in peppermint scent for the kitchen and house; and lavender for my hair, self, and the bathroom. I use 6 squirts in an 8 oz bottle for hair, self, spot treating clothes, and most cleaning jobs. (After washing my hair with the diluted Dr. Bronner’s, I use Dr. Bronner’s conditioner on just the ends of my hair, and for a final rinse I use 1 tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar in 16 oz of water—and my hair is healthier than it has ever been before.)

    Full strength is good for stubborn household cleaning, and six squirts full strength, about a tablespoon, will do a regular load of laundry. I reorder every six months or so, but larger households will probably need to purchase it more often. I like it because if does a good job, contains no chemicals, smells great, is certified organic and certified fair trade, and it is cheaper to use than all the products it replaces.
