Tell Kimberly Clark to Stop Wiping Out Ancient Forests

Kleenex, one of the most popular brands of tissue products in the world, contributes to the destruction of ancient forests. Its manufacturer, the Kimberly-Clark corporation, has been unwilling to improve its practices, continuing to rely on paper and pulp made from clearcut ancient forest including Canada’s Boreal forest.

Recently, Greenpeace activists drove a Kleenex shaped bus across the entrance of Kimberly-Clark's paper mill. This busy mill receives thousands of tons of ancient trees throughout the year, so our action is sure to get the company’s immediate attention.

You can help by encouraging Kimberly-Clark to meet with us right now!


I am requesting that you meet with representatives of Greenpeace to discuss how the Kimberly-Clark company can reduce its impact on ancient forest such as the Boreal forest. I am very concerned that as CEO, you do not care about your company’s impact on our last remaining and precious ancient forests. Because your company has not made any attempt to lessen its environment impact on these forests, I will not purchase Kimberly-Clark products until the company significantly increases the amount of post-consumer recycled content in all of its tissue paper products. I ask also that the company commit to protect ancient and endangered forests by seeking Forest Stewardship Council certification for the virgin wood fiber it does use. Numerous companies are agreeing not to sell or source wood products that increase ancient forest destruction. Your company has the opportunity to be a leader and join the growing number of environmentally responsible companies that are providing forest-friendly products. I ask that you take the necessary steps to do so, immediately. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
