Tell Procter & Gamble to clean up their mess and improve their tissue production practices!
River Jordan for NRDC
NRDC’s updated The Issue with Tissue Fifth Edition report and scorecard once again gives Procter & Gamble (P&G) all F grades across its tissue brands.
As one of the major drivers of pulp and paper production in Canada, P&G must change their ways if we want to preserve the irreplaceable boreal forest. We can do something about it – we can build on the momentum of a shifting marketplace and push P&G to adopt stringent, climate-friendlier standards for their tissue products.
The boreal forest is essential in the fight against climate change, holding more than twice as much carbon as the world’s oil reserves. The boreal is the homeland of Indigenous communities and vital habitat for threatened species like caribou. But widespread industrial logging for forest products like P&G’s Charmin toilet paper is destroying more than one million acres of the boreal each year.
Following a complaint filed by NRDC, the company now faces the prospect of scrutiny from the Securities and Exchange Commission for misleading shareholders regarding its wood pulp sourcing practices. You can help be part of the public outcry — send a letter to P&G now.
