Greenpeace recently launched a campaign linking palm oil used in products like Head & Shoulders (owned by parent company Procter and Gamble) to the destruction of Indonesia’s Paradise rainforest. Now we’re excited to share news of hundreds of people in a dozen cities across the country, taking action to support the campaign; staging protests, signing petitions and calling P&G directly to cut its ties to deforestation.
From sunny San Diego, to a frigid Chicago and all the way to Raleigh, NC people mobilized to tell P&G’s customers the dirty secret behind Head & Shoulders. In San Diego volunteers danced through a crowded outdoor shopping area asking people to sign onto the Tiger Manifesto.
In Washington DC, 100 new people signed the Tiger Manifesto in under an hour. So far people have been overwhelmingly “pro tiger” and not just folks on the streets. Some major companies including Unilever (makers of Dove), L’Oreal, Nestle, and Mondelez (formerly Kraft) are already committed to keeping rainforest destruction out of the products we buy. If they can do it, so can P&G.
The word on the street is clear: Head & Shoulders, it’s time to stop putting tiger survival on the line. And we won’t stop until P&G commits to a strong no deforestation policy. You don’t have to climb a building to take part in this campaign but we do need your help. Take action by signing this petition to Procter & Gamble today!
