Watch moms talk to their local retailers!

As a college student it’s safe to say I spend a lot of time on YouTube. But it was a new experience for me to watch moms and bloggers from across the country post videos about their involvement in the Mind the Store campaign. We wanted to share some of the highlights so you could see how easy it is to ask your favorite retailers to Mind the Store.

Take a moment to watch some of these clever and fun videos!

This catchy video is one of many ways Sommer took action on the Mind the Store campaign. She calls on the retailers to be super heroes — in our mind she is a superhero for her enthusiasm and dedication to this campaign!

Proactive mom, Katy from Non-Toxic Kids, takes action at her local Home Depot in Vermont asking the top retailer to “mind the store”! Below is the “before” video of Katy and her two children who are hoping to speak with the manager, and will deliver the letter from Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families. The letter discusses the 100+ hazardous chemicals that are used in various products.
