    We’ve been showing this new video to supporters on board the Rainbow Warrior. It’s a reflection on what we’ve achieved with help from people like you. It’s a tribute to you and all of our supporters, and it’s a call to action.

    The response to the video has been amazing. I’ve seen tears well up, I’ve seen standing ovations, and I’ve seen pride and a renewed desire to make a difference. People have felt inspired because it speaks to what we can achieve when we act together.

    And now, more than ever, is the time when we need action. That’s why we're asking for your help to make sure this video is seen by a lot more people.

    We need to inspire action because in their haste to drill, mine and sell NZ for short term gain, our Government is taking New Zealand in the wrong direction. It’s a direct...

  • The new Rainbow Warrior

    Hello and Happy New Year!

    The Rainbow Warrior is now in New Zealand waters. She’ll be sailing into Matauri Bay to visit the final resting place of the first Rainbow Warrior before heading down to Auckland for the first public open days this weekend on the 12th and 13th Jan. She’ll then head south for more public open days in Bluff, Stewart Island, Dunedin and Wellington.

    There’s a special connection between the Rainbow Warrior and New Zealand. It's the first time the new Rainbow Warrior has visited New Zealand - but it feels like a homecoming.

    People here have a unique relationship with the Warrior - it's a part of the New Zealand story just as much as New Zealand is a part of her story.

    When the first Rainbow Warrior was bombed in Auckland, New Zealanders rallied in support and contr... Read more >

  • New Zealand Story - Something to be proud of

    Blogpost by Nick Young - December 20, 2012 at 15:54

    With the new Rainbow Warrior coming we got to thinking about her place in New Zealand history and about what makes us proud to be from this little nation at the far end of the world.

    With some help from Perendale Productions we made this short video to embody just some of the events and people through history who have defined us and made their mark on our world.

    As the year comes to an end, we hope this video will also make you feel happy and proud, and prompt us all to reflect on the sort of country we want to be into the future and how together we can write the next chapter in the story of New Zealand.

    So here’s a little video we’ve made just for you to say a huge thank you from the whole crew at Greenpeace.

  • Levi's shapes up to become a Detox leader

    Blogpost by Nick Young - December 14, 2012 at 8:11
    Levi Strauss & Co. today committed to go toxic-free. Why? Because you and hundreds of thousands of other people demanded that Levi’s “Go Forth and Detox”.


      Levi's commits to Go Forth and Detox

    The world's biggest denim brand joins ten other clothing companies that have made credible commitments to Detox, including the world's largest fashion retailer, Zara.

    Levi's commitment comes just eight days after we launched our “Toxic Threads: Under Wraps” report in Mexico, and screened a documentary about a family struggling to hold factories in the region to account for the pollution they are causing, including suppliers of brands like Levi's.

    The brand is living up to its claims of being a leader. Competitors that have so far failed to take responsibility for the pollu... Read more >
