PAOV — Iceland, a British supermarket chain, recently released a Christmas ad highlighting the devastation caused by the palm oil industry and announcing that their products would no longer use any palm oil. TV regulators quickly banned the ad for being too political. If you agree with more than 795,000 people who believe the ban should be overturned, add your name.

Sign now with a click Iceland released a Christmas advert today highlighting the devastation caused by palm oil products. It was a beautiful and important message. But the tv regulators have banned the advert, for being too political!

Palm oil is a product that can be found in everything from shampoos and detergents to sandwiches and biscuits.. It’s one of the most environmentally-damaging industries, and each day 25 orangutans are killed. It’s production wipes out rainforests and wildlife, driving animals like the orangutan into extinction.

As a father of three who thinks this ad would help educate people about how their products are killing orangutans and their homes, I feel banning this advert is an injustice.

The body that stopped the advert being broadcasted, Clearcast, say that the ad breaches it’s political rules. The ad holds an important message - one that is emotional, touching and helps to spread a message about saving the environment and so must be broadcasted. It’s so powerful.

Please sign this petition if you too believe the ban should be overturned so that this ad can be on TV screens at Christmas. Sign now with a click Visit petition page
