Boycott Nordstrom's for Retailing AHAVA Beauty Products

Hey folks,
I just took action to tell Nordstrom to stop selling Ahava products. Ahava promises “Beauty Secrets from the Dead Sea” but the real secrets are an ugly truth—its products actually come from stolen Palestinian natural resources in the Occupied Territory of the Palestinian West Bank, and are produced in the illegal settlement of Mitzpe Shalem. There is a coalition effort to get stores across the country, including Nordstrom, to stop carrying the products. Costco has already dropped them! Ahava means "Love" in Hebrew, but there's nothing loving about occupation!

I'm glad to see that this CODEPINK action is getting support.

Thanks for the shout-out to our campaign! We topped 2,000 letters to Nordstrom last night.

All best,
