They never should have used such products. But it is nice to see they are doing SOMETHING to help!

If anyone has an obligation to set a good example for children, and If anyone's example gets noticed, it's Disney's. KUDOS to Disney --but you should have done it sooner!

Noted, Thanks Cal. Indeed good news! The huge impacts of Disney will help. As others have said, They should have been aware and done this long ago. However, they were working on the usual assumptions that "out of sight - out of mind". The blind mind in these cases are their markets - human who don't know. Disney and other business certainly didn't care what destruction they were causing before exposure by those humans who do see and do care - alot.
