Listen Up, Brookstone!

Published by PETA.

This week, we received a tip that Brookstone’s district managers and vice presidents were gathering in the Manchester, New Hampshire, area, where their headquarters is based, for corporate meetings and store visits.

While they were going over new store layouts and new bonus packages for selling killing as many frogs as possible, our larger-than-life “frog” was following them wherever they went. Our frog wanted to remind them of the one thing that Brookstone executives have clearly left out of their training manuals: compassion.


We stood outside their headquarters …
We followed them on their tour of New Hampshire Brookstone stores …


We even followed them to the restaurant where they ate dinner!

We’re not going to let Brookstone forget about the thousands of frogs who are dying on their store shelves, while shipped across the country, and in the homes of people who do not have the ability to care for them. Until Brookstone ends the sale of Frog-O-Spheres at its stores nationwide, it can consider our “frog” its permanent shadow.
