SAVE THE ORANGUTAN — PEPSICO, FIX YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN
Dear Ms. Indra Nooyi (PepsiCo, CEO),
PepsiCo’s use of Conflict Palm Oil to make chips and chewy granola bars is driving orangutans to the brink of extinction in the wild. Production of Conflict Palm Oil is destroying the orangutan’s rainforest home and fragmenting their populations. Without large, healthy areas of forest, the orangutan as a species cannot survive. I’m appealing to you to lead your company on a new path — one that will urgently address the destruction of Indonesia’s rainforests. Thousands of people across the world have demanded that PepsiCo cease its use of Conflict Palm Oil, but, over the last two years, PepsiCo has failed over and over again to take meaningful action. The time for delays is over. PepsiCo must discontinue the use of Conflict Palm Oil in its products now.
I urge you and PepsiCo to address this critical issue, for the survival of orangutans.
