Taking Action: Global Day of Action to Cut Conflict Palm Oil

We’re so excited to see what happens around the world on May 20! We’ve been working hard with thousands of you across the globe to ensure that the Global Day of Action to Cut Conflict Palm Oil is a smashing success, but we need your help to make sure PepsiCo gets the message loud and clear!

By taking the following actions on May 20 you can help make the Global Day of Action a HUGE success.

1. Show the world what you did on May 20

By sharing the photo you take of your action on May 20. you can call on PepsiCo to cut Conflict Palm Oil. It's simple; once you get your image, upload it to RAN’s Smug Mug Gallery and post it to Pepsi’s Facebook Wall with this message: #PepsiCo, the power to Cut Conflict Palm Oil is #InYourPalm.

2. Tweet at @PepsiCo on May 20

@PepsiCo I can’t stand by brands that use Conflict #PalmOil. The power is #InYourPalm

3. Call Pepsi on May 20: (+1)(914) 253-2000

You can pick up the phone and tell PepsiCo to cut Conflict Palm Oil during or after your action on May 20. Here is a guide to what you can say.

“Hi, my name is [your name] from [your city]. I’m a [student, mom..] taking part in the Global Day of Action and I'm one of your valued customers. It concerns me that your company cannot guarantee that it is not using Conflict Palm Oil in its products. PepsiCo must demand responsible palm oil from its suppliers and eliminate Conflict Palm Oil from its products. I encourage PepsiCo to secure a new global responsible palm oil procurement policy and implementation plan that ensures that the palm oil it uses is fully traceable, legally grown, and sourced from verified responsible palm oil producers not associated with deforestation, expansion onto carbon-rich peatlands or human and labor rights violations. Thank You!
