Procter & Gamble is the world’s largest consumer goods company. It has a long history of destroying and degrading forests from Borneo to the Boreal. Last year the company’s shareholders voted overwhelmingly for the company to halt these practices. Take action now.

To source pulp for Charmin Toilet Paper, Procter & Gamble’s suppliers clear cut Canadian Boreal forests, known as the “Amazon of the North.” These forests shelter vast herds of caribou and have been protected for millennia by the Indigenous peoples that call the Boreal forests home. Across the world, Procter & Gamble’s palm oil suppliers devastate Indonesia’s tropical rainforests to provide ingredients for its soaps and shampoos.

In 2020, a full two-thirds of Procter & Gamble’s shareholders voted to make the company end the destruction. Michael, can we count on your help to make Procter & Gamble honor its promises?
