Hain-Celestial makes HRC's List Again

Just wanted to mention that this is the second year in a row that the Hain Celestial Group is on the Human Rights Campaign's list of companies that do NOT support gay rights. In fact, they scored lower than Wal-Mart. (And that's saying something.)

I would almost guarantee that you have something in your cabinet from this company right now. According to their website, they are "a leading natural and organic food and personal care products company in North America and Europe." They make products like Arrowhead Mills (many different flours and gluten-free baking products), Celestial Seasonings (tea) and Soy Dream ice cream. Oh yeah, and tons of different soy and rice milk products.

Its sad since they have so many great cooking basics and frozen veggie entrees, but I will try to avoid their products as long as they stay on this list. How can you bill yourself to vegans and environmentalists and then not support gay rights? How can you care about animals and the planet but not people? I hope they make some major changes this year. Its a shame that I have to miss out on their brownie soy ice cream.
