While you are reading this, football fields of pristine rainforest are being cleared in Indonesia to make way for palm oil plantations, devastating the homes of orangutans, and in the process orphaning hundreds of baby apes.
Unless we act now and stop greedy companies destroying our environment, orangutans will go extinct within ten years.It’s not too late to turn this around, but we need your help, Brian.
In three weeks, big industry execs are meeting in Paris for the so-called “Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil”. With your help, we will send a campaigner to the meeting and confront the palm oil buyers responsible for the greatest environmental disaster of the 21st century.
The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) is an industry group that mainly seems to help big companies greenwash their image. But it could be so much more, if only it would punish its members for forest destruction and human rights violations instead of looking the other way.
That’s where SumOfUs members like you come in: with your help today, we can push the RSPO to expel members and enforce a stronger set of criteria. That’s our best chance to protect the orangutans and ensure their survival.
But the clock is ticking. If we don’t act now, our children and grandchildren will only know orangutans from picture books.
Because of SumOfus members like you taking action together in the past, we’ve pushed some of the biggest companies in the world to adopt responsible palm oil policies — Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, and McDonald’s only moved because they were pressured.
Will you please make a donation to keep the pressure up and help clean up the palm oil industry today?
Hope you are in for the battle. You can donate here.
Love, Gaia And Wisdom
