The fires are starting again, A. Beautiful rainforests from the Amazon to Indonesia are once more being set ablaze to feed greedy corporations' demand for cheap soy and palm oil.

It's up to you and me to force Nestlé, Unilever, and other powerful multinationals to stick to their anti-deforestation promises -- before it's too late.

Add your name: Demand the makers of Kitkat and Dove take urgent action to stop our rainforests from burning!

Take Action!

As you read this, thick smoke is rising from forests in Brazil, Indonesia and Malaysia, poisoning the air and driving people and animals from their homes. Majestic tall trees that give shelter to orangutans, sloths, rhinos and other rare species are burning to the ground, to be replaced by endless vast soy and oil palm monocultures.

It wasn't supposed to be this way. Nestlé, Unilever, Mondelez, Procter & Gamble and other powerful corporations all... promised that by 2020, they'd stop sourcing palm oil from producers that destroyed rainforests. But the lure of easy profits won out -- and now, our forests are bearing the consequences.

A, we can't let them get away with this. We need to ramp up the pressure on their bosses until every single gram of soy and drop of palm oil in the products they sell is sourced responsibly.

Every name on this petition will serve as a reminder to these corporations that empty promises won't save our vanishing rainforests -- it's time for real, meaningful action.

It's been a full decade since Nestlé and the other companies in the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) -- a corporate alliance whose members produce the food and household goods millions of people use every day -- committed to end deforestation in their supply chains.

Now it's 2020, the moment of truth, and many CGF corporations, including Nestlé, have admitted they won't be meeting their anti-deforestation goals. From soy-fattened beef and chicken to the palm oil in ice cream and shampoo, too many of the products filling our fridges and cabinets are still tainted with burning rainforests.

Meanwhile, the 2020 fire season is already beginning -- and some experts are saying this year's Amazon fires could be worse than the inferno that devastated one of our planet's most precious ecosystems last summer.

The clock is ticking! Demand Nestlé and co. take urgent action to stop our rainforests from burning.

Without enough public pressure on Nestlé and co., these greedy profit hoarders will simply keep making empty promises while pushing our forests to the point of no return. That's why we've joined a powerful coalition to hammer our message home -- and we're asking you to join us, just like when thousands of you successfully pressured Pepsi into radically overhauling its palm oil sourcing policy.

Together we can put out the fires, keep animals safe and stop corporations from trashing our planet and climate -- but only if we act fast.

Demand Nestlé and co. take urgent action to stop our rainforests from burning.
