The Sierra Club and other groups are organizing to fan out to stores in New Jersey and New York that sell LG products. Our goal: Urge customers to take LG's plan that would spoil the Palisades into account when they're making their next purchase of a new TV, cell phone, washer, refrigerator, or computer monitor. We'll also ask them to sign a new online petition.
