Greenpeace locks down Kimberly-Clark’s Canadian HQ

As you read this, I’m locked down inside Kimberly-Clark’s Canadian headquarters in Toronto, along with three other dedicated Greenpeace activists. We got here at nine this morning, and will be here until K-C’s Vice President of Environment, Ken Strassner, agrees to meet with us.

As the four of us entered the office and locked ourselves down, others broadcast chainsaw noises and spread woodchips in the corridors to highlight the company’s ongoing destruction of Canada’s Boreal Forest and to further disrupt operations in the office (don’t worry, unlike the wood K-C uses, all the wood chips we used were reclaimed waste from city tree trimming operations!). Others are outside the building holding a banner that reads “Kleenex destroys ancient forests.”

Kimberly-Clark executives want to ignore us, and they want to ignore the immense problems caused by forest destruction. They want to continue on with business as usual, making throw-away products out of ancient forests while global warming accelerates and species disappear.

But we’re not going to let that happen. Our campaign won’t end until Kimberly-Clark agrees to stop sourcing from endangered forests and start making its products out of fibre that’s recycled or sourced from truly sustainable logging operations.

Help us make that happen. Take action now:

It’s going to be a long, hard day locked down in this office. But knowing you’re all behind us will keep us going right until the end, fighting to protect what’s left of the magnificent Boreal forest.
