Thanks Cal. The packaging aspect change is very good. I hate to imagine all the dead dolls, plastics & other related **** in dumps around the world. However, the image is here, much to my dread and nightmares.

We are united, regardless of our banner. Green Peace, Peta, Care2 and the many others, we stand together.

Together we win. Alone we can do almost nothing. Together, arms linked, we are changing our world.

Thank you.
