We applaud our partner CVS Caremark
Posted on February 5th, 2014 by Jim
Easter Seals applauds the bold move our longtime corporate partner CVS Caremark is making to stop selling tobacco products by October 1, 2014. As the first large pharmacy chain to do so, CVS demonstrates true leadership in health and wellness. We couldn’t be more proud of our partner of 17 years. This is corporate social responsibility at its best, without regard to dollars and cents. And Easter Seals isn’t alone in this opinion, of course. Here is some positive reinforcement we’ve noticed today as well.
“…CVS Caremark sets a powerful example, and today’s decision will help advance my Administration’s efforts to reduce tobacco-related deaths, cancer, and heart disease, as well as bring down health care costs…”
