Stop Fashion from grinding up forests to make clothes.

Stand with RAN as we demand the fashion industry address the growing global threat to forests, animals and Indigenous communities of dissolving pulp.  Rainforests are destroyed to create a huge array of products, including rayon, viscose, and other textiles. These products are complicit in the resulting deforestation and human rights abuses.  

Fashion companies must take action to eliminate deforestation, human rights abuses, and species loss from their supply chains. RAN is taking on some of the biggest brands and asking them to get rainforest destruction, land grabbing and climate change Out of Fashion. With your help we know we can make a tremendous impact for the forests.

Take action now, and tell fashion companies the you want forest-friendly fabric.


Add your voice!

I stand with RAN! To earn my business, companies must eliminate rainforest destruction and human rights abuses from their supply chain.

Dissolving pulp or any other commodity that destroys the planet doesn't have a place in my home.

Companies must implement a forest products policy that eliminates deforestation and ends the rainforest destruction for rayon and other synthetic fabrics NOW!

 

PepsiCo: Time to Take the Conflict Palm Oil Challenge

It’s been one year since we launched the campaign to cut Conflict Palm Oil from America’s snack foods. The good news is that with your help we are achieving real changes from many major companies, proving that not only is it possible for companies to change, but that people-powered pressure works to bring this change about.

The damage caused by Conflict Palm Oil is tremendous. Deforestation to make way for palm oil plantations threatens unique and priceless areas like the Leuser Ecosystem in Indonesia. It threatens species like the Sumatran rhino, orangutans, and sun bears. The impact on communities who are forced off their land or pushed into forced and child labor is simply unacceptable.

Despite the last year’s progress, there are still some critical companies that are refusing to take action to address their Conflict Palm Oil problem. One of the worst offenders in the Conflict Palm Oil world - who is also one of biggest makers of popular kid’s snacks - won’t even acknowledge the destruction it's causing.

PepsiCo is a major Conflict Palm Oil laggard, dragging its feet, refusing to admit it even has a problem. With a whopping 457,200 metric tons of palm oil used annually in snacks like Cheetos and Lay's potato chips, PepsiCo has a huge impact on the planet, the forests, and the people and animals which call them home. 

Send your message here: Tell PepsiCo you won't have deforestation, extinction, or slavery in your home. 

No Conflict Palm Oil

Expansion of palm oil plantations into Indonesia’s and Malaysia's rainforests is causing massive climate disruption and pushing wild orangutans to the brink of extinction. We have reached The Last Stand of the Orangutan—but it's not too late.

Take action now to call on the Snack Food 20—companies that control some of the best-known snack food brands in the world—to remove Conflict Palm Oil tied to rainforest destruction and orangutan extinction from their products. These companies rely on our trust as consumers. If enough of us speak up, the Snack Food 20 will have to change the way they do business.

Only 60,600 orangutans remain in the wilds of Sumatra and Borneo. That's why we’re organizing 60,600 humans to stand up for them by calling on PepsiCo and the other Snack Food 20 companies to cut Conflict Palm Oil, not rainforests. Will you stand for the orangutans and the climate today?

EPA: Strengthen the Carbon Rule

Pollution from coal fired power plants kills communities and cooks our climate.

That’s why the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a long overdue new carbon pollution standards for power plants this week. That's a welcome step, but we need more.

We already limit arsenic, mercury, soot and other air pollution from power plants—but, until now, not carbon pollution. Power plants are the single largest source of carbon pollution in the United States. Setting the first-ever federal limits on carbon pollution is an essential step to address global warming and here at RAN we absolutely support a national carbon pollution standard.

The proposed rule is not yet enough to slow global warming and not yet enough to inspire the world to make the necessary deep cuts in climate pollution. That is why we will be working hard next year to include much deeper cuts in the final rule.

The EPA is now accepting public comments on its proposed rule.

We know that the coal industry and the politicians they fund will work to undermine this rule and doom communities to years of future pollution.

Please urge the EPA to ignore the naysaying polluters and do even more to address global warming and set limits on carbon pollution from power plants.
