Happy Anniversary!

Today marks two years since we launched our campaign on the Snack Food 20 and PepsiCo. Because of the unrelenting efforts of activists like you, we have reached a turning point in the international movement to reform the notoriously destructive palm oil industry. Many of the sector’s biggest players have announced groundbreaking, globally responsible palm oil commitments, and pledged to eliminate forest and peatland destruction, human rights abuses, forced and child labor and climate pollution from their palm oil supply chains.

But more needs to be done to drive real change on the ground. Now, it’s time to #ChangeQuaker in grocery store aisles across America!

Starting today, you can join hundreds of activists across the country who are re-branding the shelves displaying Quaker Chewy Granola bars to warn customers that Quaker products may contain Conflict Palm Oil. Can we count on you to amplify their actions?

Support the activists by sharing this message on Quaker’s Facebook page and on Twitter to show PepsiCo that activists all across the country are calling on the snack food giant to fix the gaps in its palm oil commitment and cut Conflict Palm Oil from our food.

Post to Quaker’s Facebook Page (include the link below in your post to share our video on Quaker's page):
Quaker, for two years families have been telling you that we don’t want to eat Conflict Palm Oil. Now is the time to spend a few extra pennies on every package to cut Conflict Palm Oil, save orangutans from extinction and keep children out of slave labor conditions. https://www.facebook.com/rainforestactionnetwork/videos/vb.8002590959/10153248922700960/?type=2&theater

Join us in celebrating this two year milestone. Let’s send PepsiCo a powerful message from across the globe and convince decision makers to strengthen their palm oil commitment and spend a few extra pennies to cut Conflict Palm Oil for good.

This Week of Action is critical because PepsiCo decision makers are deciding right now whether to actually address these problems in PepsiCo’s supply chain.
