Protect Paradise

There are as few as 400 Sumatran tigers left in Indonesia’s forests - and their time on earth is running out. Some companies are destroying their home for vast palm oil plantations and the global brands we know and love are not doing enough to keep their products forest friendly. Instead, they buy palm oil from a faceless corporation called Wilmar International, the world’s biggest palm oil trader whose practices are threatening orangutans, elephants and tigers, disrupting communities and ravaging the Indonesian landscape.

But we are going to change this.

Palm oil can be grown without destroying forests. We can make Wilmar stop buying palm oil from forest destruction, and push the government of Indonesia to strengthen forest protection. But this can only happen if we persuade the brands we love to become tiger friendly and remove forest destruction from their products. You have a right to know if tiger extinction is in the products you use everyday and we want brands to live up to your standards.

So we are helping the products we love get a makeover.

We want forests in our future; we want to protect paradise. On our streets and online, we’re tracking down our favourite brands and telling them, their bosses and their staff to protect the Sumatran tiger’s last home. We’re spreading the word to get our friends, culture makers and policy makers, to join us. Your voice is powerful. We’ve done this before and we know we can win again.
