Costco

A,

I want to make sure you saw this -- if this massive forest gets plowed down, we don’t have a fighting chance against climate change. Without enough donations from members like you, Costco might get away with destroying it to make luxury toilet paper.

Here's my original email:




American warehouse giant Costco is destroying the world’s largest intact forest to make toilet paper. This forest is key to stopping climate change because it absorbs tons of carbon. If it gets wiped out, it’ll unleash more climate catastrophe.

Can you chip in to save the boreal forest from Costco?

A,

Costco is wiping out our chance to stop climate change… to make luxury toilet paper.

The magnificent boreal forest is the largest remaining intact forest in the world. It covers over half of Canada and it’s home to hundreds of indigenous communities and billions of animals. The stretches of pristine forest hold and absorb massive loads of carbon from the air.

But loggers are sawing the forest down at a terrifying rate and unleashing ever more carbon -- so Costco can make luxury toilet paper out of these old-growth trees.

SumOfUs members like you forced Costco executives to the negotiating table by raising the alarm. But this week, negotiations with Costco execs have gone cold -- can you chip in to confront them with mobile billboards outside their HQ?

Toilet paper is the number one biggest seller for Costco. But in its hunger for profit, Costco uses wood from mature forests and tries to claim it’s “sustainable."

A, if we don’t save the boreal forest from Costco greed, we don’t have a fighting chance against climate change. The carbon released when these forests are destroyed is devastating -- toilet paper from virgin wood is worse than driving gas-guzzling SUVs.

So far, Costco is refusing to use recycled materials. But A, you can turn Costco’s forest destruction into a national scandal.

When Costco bosses see giant billboards slamming them for destroying pristine forest surrounding their HQ, it’ll rattle staff.

They’ll know their reputation -- and profits -- are under threat. Can you send an urgent donation so we can get Costco back to the negotiating table?

We know when we come together we can make corporations do the right thing. When 400,000 members like you took action, we forced Starbucks to start using 100% recycled paper cups.

And members like you forced McDonald's to commit to a deforestation-free palm oil policy. When we expose the ugly side of corporate giants -- like Costco -- they take action to protect their brand. And in doing so we score a massive victory for our planet, and the animals we share it with.
