Kleenex = KLEERCUT
Kimberly-Clark, the largest manufacturer of tissue products in the world, clearcuts ancient forests like the boreal forest to manufacture Kleenex disposable tissue products that are used once and flushed or thrown away. North American forests like the boreal forest have been evolving for over 10,000 years. These forests provide a vibrant ecosystem for hundreds of species of animals and birds and, as a massive storehouse for carbon, are essential for fighting global warming.
The Greenpeace Student Network
Greenpeace is mobilizing a student movement against Kimberly-Clark in order to protect these endangered forests and their rare wildlife. Weâ€™re looking for passionate and dedicated environmental leaders that are committed to leading the charge in the Kleenex = Kleercut project. Our goal is to target board members through campus ties, consumers, and shareholders until Kleenex agrees to stop the use of wood fiber from ancient endangered forests and increases the percentage of post-consumer recycled content in all products.
