Boycott Walmart Slippers...

If you are a mom you probably know that a BUNCH of toys made in China were recalled because of some paint on them. If you live in Hawaii you probably buy your slippers at Walmart... buy locals, but not the ones from China.
Here is why:
(Those are not my feet) Those are the ugly feet of someone who bought slippers from Walmart that were made in China. The slippers used plastic & paint with a certain flesh eating chemical...

Ugh... That is awful!!

I hate to say it, but the one pair of flip-flops that I have and have had for 3 years and I paid $20 for them at J Crew. Pricey for flip-flops I know... but TOTALLY worth it. They're so comfortable, and I wear them CONSTANTLY! :)

How about we just boycott Walmart? Buy local... support the little guy... know where our products come from. Yeah - it's a lot more convenient when everything is there, and the prices are low - but what kind of company are they... thanks for sharing this, even if it is a little gross. Yuck. You know I hate feet, right? And now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go throw up...

I feel really bad for that person :(

I am all about placing $$ in the hands of those who use it responsibly and Wallmart is definitely not on that list!

Ewww, Ick!

I had a couple of pairs of black slippers from Walmart and took me a long time to figure out that the bottom of my feet have been always "dirty" all because of the slipper's color printing to the bottom of my feet. NEVER buy ANYTHING from China.
