Cargill: Stop Destroying Rainforests, Communities, and Our Global Climate!

    1. Petition by

      Rainforest Action Network

Cargill, the largest supplier of palm oil from Southeast Asia and the Pacific to the United States, is destroying tropical rainforests, displacing forest-dependent communities, and accelerating global climate change for its palm oil plantations.

The impacts of Cargill and its suppliers' plantations in tropical rainforest countries around the world are severe. For instance, the clearing and burning of rainforests leads to loss of critical habitat for endangered species like the orangutan and the displacement of Indigenous people and small farmers.

Sign our petition to call on Cargill to adopt and implement an overarching palm oil policy to fully address these issues. It's time Cargill took steps to protect rainforests, rainforest communities, and our climate.

      Dear Mr. Page,

      There is no doubt that Girl Scouts organization and management knew of this problem and did nothing to stop it. or perhaps your company's scientists forgot to report it to you and you forgot to report your findings to the girl scout? There is no excuse. It is wrong. I grew up with the girl scouts and it's a wonderful organization. Whoever is responsible let's

      keep them accountable. Sandy Cunningham, Wichita, Kansas. retired girl scout, and big purchaser of cookies. Sandy Cunningham, Wichita, Kansas

      Please know that my willingness to do business with Cargill and to purchase Cargill's products is dependent upon how Cargill handles this matter. It is imperative that you take responsibility for its destructive impact to the environment on which Indigenous communities and endangered wildlife are dependent.

      Thank you very much for your time and consideration of this important matter. I will continue to follow this issue and I look forward to your reply.
