Return to Vendor

Get something stinky
as a gift?
Don’t toss it
on the street
or in the trash.
Don’t regift it
to a friend
or enemy.
Don’t donate it
to a charity.
Do send a message
loud and clear!

Now’s the time
to let them know!

You don’t want
toxics
near or far.

Return to vendor!

Plastic-free,
and fragrance-free!
Pollution-free!
That’s best, you see
for you and me!

Plastics and fragrances are made from many of the same harmful chemicals.
These pollutants are causing numerous health and environmental harms.

#ReturnToVendor

Manufacturers and vendors won’t get the message until enough of us let them know that the products they are making and selling us are hurting us and the environment, and that we don’t want unhealthy and destructive products!

When they get that message loud and clear, things will change!

  1. In the sidebar, under ADVERSE EFFECTS REPORTING, are the official links for the Canadian and US agencies who we should report any symptoms to.

    It is important to let manufacturers know, but they are not required to share that information, so it is not being tracked as well as the official reports would be.

    The fastest way to effect change these days is to return the toxic stuff, tell them why, and then call head office or customer service to say you won’t buy more from them until the have safe, non-toxic products and materials.

    I don’t want toxics, but the stink keeps coming back
    So then I gave it to the thrift-shop, they said they re fragrance free
    Bright in early next morning they sent it back to me
    They wrote upon it
    Return to vendor, we re fragrance free
    No such poison, no such stink
    This time I m gonna take it myself and put it back in the mall
    And it if comes back the very next day
    Ill call the firemen
    Return to vendor, I’m fragrance free
    No such number, no such zone
    No such poison, no such stink
    Return to vendor, return to vendor, return to vendor

  3. I love your poem! I cannot tell you how many times I have gotten stinky gifts and even accidentally purchased stinky things from Amazon. I used to try to remove it with vinegar but now I just return.
