“Ferocious jungle predators, laying in wait, stalking their fast food hawking adversaries. The scene was set–our Sumatran tigers were in place, our orangutan armed with fliers, and a banner to catch the attention of the many motorists driving down Colorado Blvd, the backbone of East Denver, Colorado traffic. Our activists were excited to talk to the masses of KFC customers, so that they could in turn engage with a brand they’re loyal to, and help encourage change through direct dialogue. “ – Event Coordinator, Andrew Pytlik
Last weekend, activists in Denver demonstrated in front of a local KFC- a sight that’s been happening across the country. Why are people taking to the streets and the storefronts of KFCs nationwide? Photographs, supply chain research and forensic testing leave no doubt: KFC is trashing rainforests for throw-away packaging like chicken buckets.
