The Snack Food 20 are really feeling the pressure!
You all have sent almost 20,000 messages to the Snack Food 20 demanding that they cut “Conflict Palm Oil” tied to rainforest destruction, orangutan extinction, and human rights violations from their products. We are well on the way to reaching our goal of getting 60,600 people to stand with the 60,600 orangutans left in the wild forests of Borneo and Sumatra. (If you haven’t yet, take action now!)
This morning, I accompanied Strawberry, an orphaned orangutan from Indonesia, on her visit to the J.M Smucker Company in Cleveland, OH—and we need you to echo our demands to the company. Let’s make a call for change so loud that Smucker’s can’t ignore it!
Here are three things you can do right now to echo our demands to Smucker’s:
1. Call Smucker’s at (330) 682-3000. Here’s a call script you can use:
2. Post this message on Smucker’s Facebook wall:
3. Tweet at Smucker’s:
At the Smucker’s HQ, Strawberry and her friends from the Ohio Palm Oil Action Team gave representatives of The J.M. Smucker Company a copy of the RAN report Conflict Palm Oil: How US Snack Food Brands are Contributing to Orangutan Extinction, Climate Change and Human Rights Violations and outlined RAN’s demand to cut Conflict Palm Oil.
Today’s visit to Smucker’s is the latest company stop on The Power Is In Your Palm Tour. In the past two weeks, Strawberry and our team have visited the headquarters of Kellogg’s, Mondelēz International and Kraft Foods Group to deliver the report and a similar set of demands.
The Snack Food 20 is feeling the pressure. Let’s keep it up.
