Kimberly-Clark's destruction of Canada's Boreal Forest Exposed in European Newspaper Ad

On Thursday, December 21, Greenpeace brought European public attention to Kimberly-Clark’s clearcutting of Canada’s Boreal forest through an ad in the International Herald Tribune. The ad shows a Kleenex tissue box and instructions on how to continue destroying ancient forests using the company’s products.

The ad is the latest step in Greenpeace’s campaign to force Kimberly-Clark to stop purchasing pulp for its disposable products, including Kleenex, from destructive logging operations in Canada’s Boreal forest and follows on a series of blockades and actions in the United States and Italy in November.

European consumer markets are particularly sensitive to environmental issues such as the destruction of ancient forests and Europe represents nearly 20% of Kimberly-Clark's global sales.

Take Action:

Urge Kimberly-Clark to stop destroying ancient forests like Canada's Boreal.

I saw a bumper sticker recently that read. "Next time you want to save a tree, try wiping your ass with your hand". I got a chuckle out of that and have to agree with that driver.

However; I do believe it is not only our ( the peoples of this planet) responsibility but Corporate World's responsibility also to insure that old growth and ancient forests are kept safe and whole for all of time.

The Corporation's know how to manage their recourse's and plant trees that can be routinely harvested to make their products. Governments also have a huge responsibility in allowing the permits to be issued to these Cooperation's and they need to be held accountable also.

Personally, I wipe my nose on my sleeve and use corn cobs for "other" duties. The cobs are a little rough on the tush but the snot build up is an extra layer of protection against the elements.

If these evil corporations just cut and cut untill there was nothing left, then they would soon be out of business! I agree with j3411 on the corporate/government shit,but not on the sleeve,corn cob stuff. If you say that we as voters can affect a change then I disagree,and would use the US governments actions in our war as an example.All of these "special interest groups" get use all fired up,and we get indignant over these issues,yet we continue to buy the products. I think that as with any issue there is more than one side and more than one"truth".

It's all about human overpopulation, greed and waste that destroys nature. It's become a single use throwaway society. Just look at the waste of paper napkins at fast food restaurants, most people grab ten times as many as they need then throw them in the thrash.

I don't buy Kleenex tissues but not because of the destruction of the forests. I buy the stores own brand which are cheaper and just as good. Mankind is it's own worst enemy too as we have ravaged the planet of it's resources and polluted it's atmosphere. But to all those scientists I have this to say:
If we hadn't of started destroying our planet it would eventually die anyway
1) by the sun becoming a supernova or
2) by the Earth spinning out of orbit as the molten centre cools and becomes totally hard.
3) by being hit by a large enough asteroid to kill all known life.
The trick is not to worry about it and just live life as normal. But we could all do with a few lessons in how to protect our environment as the changes can be easily seen and felt.
