With Ben & Jerry’s recent decision to stop selling their products in the West Bank, many Jews have responded by boycotting B&J products.
But how will Ben & Jerry’s know that such a small segment of the population is not buying their products? How will the company be able to calculate the loss of business that our boycott represents?
Here’s how: We’ll send them the lids from the all of the containers of non-Ben & Jerry’s ice cream we’ve purchased for the remainder of the summer.
- Buy a container of ice cream.
Not Ben & Jerry’s, and preferably not any of the other ice cream brands made by Unilever: Breyers, Good Humor, Klondike, Magnum, Popsicle, and Talenti Gelato. Not sure what to buy? Click here for a list!
- Eat the ice cream!
Enjoy! This is the best part!
- Bring the ice cream lid(s) to a drop-off location near you no later than September 5, 2021.
Only the lid! No wrappers, no containers. Please clean and dry it thoroughly before you bring it! Scroll down this page to find a drop-off location near you, or click here to volunteer to collect lids in your area.
- We’ll take care of the rest!
On September 9 (the day after Rosh Hashanah), thousands of lids collected across the USA will be sent to AJYP. In turn, we’ll ship them to the Ben & Jerry’s CEO with the message that these are the brands we’ll continue to buy until B&J rejects BDS, strengthens its ties with Israel, and supports peace for Israelis and Palestinians alike.*
