Boycott on Polar Beverages Launched Today!
20 Nov 2000
MASSPIRG and Mass. Earth First! is launching a full-scale boycott of all Polar Beverage products (including Adirondack and Cape Cod beverages) today! We are holding a press conference at the Polar plant in Worcester at 4 pm. This is being done to connect Polar Beverages to the ski expansion on Mt. Wachusett that's been proposed by the Wachusett Mountain Associates.
The Wachusett Mountain Associates (WMA) has long had their greedy clutches on 450 acres of publicly owned Mt. Wachusett. They've leased this land from us for the last 20 years or so. Now, they want to build an "alpine park" right near the old growth forest and they want to widen 10 ski trails. This will mean clear-cutting approximately 2,000 trees. MASSPIRG and Mass. Earth First! have had enough! The Crowley family owns WMA, but also owns Polar Beverages. Much of the money that would finance the proposed destruction on the mountain would come from Polar. This is why we are launching a full-scale boycott of all Polar products until they revoke their plans for further devestating Mt. Wachuesett! Each time a person buys a Polar product, that person is economically supporting the ski expansion. Don't buy Polar, Adirondack, or Cape Cod drinks! The Crowleys own them all! Free the mountain!

As fighters for the mountain for many years, we are for anything that will free the mountain and stop it from getting eaten mouthful by mouthful by a gluttonous bear, that, is not indigionous to this habitat. Kill the Polar bear, bring back the native Black bear. Stop polar beverage. Grab a Polar and give it a slug...right beteen the eyes!
