Bed Bath & Beyond carries two products that are manufactured in illegal Israeli settlements:
AHAVA DEAD SEA LABORATORIES cosmetics products are manufactured on stolen Palestinian land in the Occupied Territory of the Palestinian West Bank, and are produced in the illegal settlement of Mitzpe Shalem.
SodaStream produces home beverage carbonating devices in an illegal industrial zone called Mishor Edomim, on a 29 square mile area between Jerusalem and Jericho expropriated from its original Palestinian owners in the 70’s to prevent a future contiguous Palestinian state.
When you buy Ahava and SodaStream products you directly support the on-going occupation and exploitation of Palestinian land, labor and natural resources. Join a growing global movement for Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions towards a just and peaceful future for both Palestinians and Israelis.
Tell Bed Bath & Beyond: AHAVA and SodaStream are made by Israeli profiteers in Occupied Palestine. Don’t sell AHAVA or SodaStream!
Will you join us on Wednesday night?
