Join us in signing a letter to Blake Nordstrom, urging him to stop carrying Ahava cosmetics and live up to his socially responsible business promises!
CONTACT Blake Nordstrom
Since 2010, supporters of the Stolen Beauty boycott campaign have been in communication with Blake Nordstrom, President of Nordstrom, Inc, about his company stocking products from Ahava Dead Sea Laboratories (see letter exchanges here: 1 2 3 4 5).
Ahava cosmetics are made in a factory in an illegal West Bank settlement using pillaged Palestinian resources; the goods carry a "product of Israel" label, despite being made in the Occupied Palestinian territories. We don't think a "socially responsible" business such as Nordstrom should be selling inaccurately labeled and illegal settlement goods. Ahava means love in Hebrew, but there is no love in occupation.
One way consumers around the world can help bring Israel's occupation to an end is by holding occupation profiteers, such as Ahava Dead Sea Laboratories, accountable for their violations of international law. Tell Blake Nordstrom there is nothing ethical or socially responsible about selling illegal settlement goods.
Please sign our letter to Blake Nordstrom, President of Nordstrom, Inc., calling on him to stop selling Ahava cosmetics in his family's retail chain.
Thanks so much for your support and for helping to take the profit out of occupation.
Nancy K, Dooler, and the Stolen Beauty team
