Give The Orang-utan A Break

 In Environment

Nestlé don’t want you to see the video above, because they complained to Youtube that Greenpeace were infringing their copyright. Youtube removed the video but now Greenpeace would like to offer it to you, as a gift. Download the video and put it on your favourite video sharing site. The more people who join in, the more interesting it’ll make things for Nestlé.

We all like a break, so it’s time to give orang-utans one. Nestlé uses palm oil in Kit Kat and many other products which is bought from suppliers that destroy rainforests in Indonesia to grow their plantations.
As a result, threatened species like orangutans are being pushed into extinction and huge quantities of greenhouse gases are being released, accelerating climate change.
Nestlé have so far refused to stop buying palm oil from the worst suppliers, so it’s time to make them change their minds.

Write to board member André Kudelski to demand they act responsibly and cease trading with companies that are destroying Indonesia’s rainforests. More info here and an in-depth piece here…
