Greenpeace is looking for your support to ask Waitrose to drop their planned partnership with Shell, seen by many as one of the world’s most destructive companies. Waitrose are planning to add Shell petrol stations to their stores across the country, but as we know, Shell are intent on the destruction of the Arctic with their drilling.
Waitrose have built up a very ecological and environmental profile over the years, helping to protect vulnerable fish stock for example. You even receive a token with each shop where you can choose a charity to support as you leave by dropping it in a slot. So why have them teamed up with Shell then?! After making such an effort previously to save the world’s fish stocks, surely they should be choosing the environment over Shell?
Shell recently broke American law when their Arctic Challenger vessel was found to be making four illegal fluid discharges. There plans for Arctic drilling is sure to cause massive problems for the eco system in one of the few untouched natural areas left on the planet. ‘Safe drilling’ is a fantasy in an area of like this, and there is no technology that can clean up the oil spills that are inevitable if Shell continue with their plans.
