Tell Major US Retailers: Don't Sell Rainforest Destruction E-mail

Greenpeace: "Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) has been driving Indonesian rainforest destruction at an alarming rate to make throw-away tissue products. This deforestation is not only polluting our climate, but also pushing wildlife like the Sumatran tiger towards extinction. With only 400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild, every bit of its dwindling forest habitat matters.

"Here in the U.S., APP is trying to push its “Paseo” brand tissue products onto store shelves across the country. To do so, they are counting on people – and major retailers – to stay in the dark about the dirty secret behind their tissue products. But you can help us change that. Make sure retailers that are selling Paseo products, like Kmart, stop doing so, and that stores not selling it yet, like Walmart, don’t start!" >>Take Action

Not to mention how delicious and nutritious fresh-picked fruits and vegetables are! More tips...
