Greenpeace investigative team witnesses the newly cleared forest in an oil palm plantation owned by PT Wana Catur Jaya Utama concession, a subsidiary of BW Plantation, which is a palm oil supplier to Procter & Gamble in Central Kalimantan.
What can we do? It’s time for us to make P&G change its ways. There are some companies that are already moving to eliminate forest destruction from their supply chains. Among them is the cereal stalwart, Kellogg’s, which has committed to removing deforestation from its supply chain, as well as L’Oréal, Unilever, Ferrero and Nestlé. The world’s largest palm oil trader, Wilmar International, has also committed to a No Deforestation policy, which – along with the Palm Oil Innovation Group – builds on the business case for responsibly grown palm oil. We’ve confronted P&G for the last eight months with how it is exposing consumers to forest destruction. Instead of taking urgent action it is trying to greenwash its actions. It’s time Head & Shoulders commits 100% to forest protection and stop making its customers a part of the Sumatran tiger’s extinction.
While Procter & Gamble were advertising about motherhood, companies that produce palm oil for P&G have been making orphans out of orangutans. Everyone needs to know that deforestation to create palm oil plantations means orangutans are senselessly orphaned. Together, we can get P&G to commit to only using forest-friendly palm oil.
Head & Shoulders has a dirty secret:
The Indonesian rainforest — home to 10-15% of all species on earth, including the last remaining 400 Sumatran tigers — is being methodically destroyed. And the biggest driver of this destruction is palm oil, an ingredient in everything from cookies to shampoo.
But palm oil production doesn’t have to be tied with forest destruction.
Still, key corporate holdouts like Procter & Gamble — the makers of Head & Shoulders — are stalling the progress. Procter & Gamble continues to buy dirty palm oil linked to deforestation.
