Not too long ago, the Willimantic Food Co-op posted a photo of their beautiful make your own Fire Cider merchandising display. This display was made possible because of the support that the movement has been given from the herbal community far and wide! Inspired by this, we pulled together some lovely printable materials for each of you to distribute in support of the movement. These materials can be provided to retailers to share with customers, use in displays, or given away at check out. Individuals and schools can use these by adding them to community bulletin boards, sharing them with associations they are involved in, or passing them out at conferences and meet-ups – the possibilities are endless. Please, use them freely and often. They are a good way to start the conversation with your local store or other individuals, if you haven’t yet already. In addition, continue to voice your opinion to stores near you, be sure to check out the resources page for a sampling of boycott letters.

Let us know how we can help.
I am very disappointed that the local coop in Amherst, MA called ALL THINGS LOCAL has decided to carry Shire’s Fire Cider. They told me (and I am a member who said not to do it) they made the decision after meeting with the company because Shire told them if they hadn’t patented the name “someone else would”. I explained how upset herbalists are but they didn’t seem to get it. Can you please contact them?
