Call Cargill to Stop Rainforest Destruction in Indonesia
Call 1-800-CARGILL (227-4455) or 952-742-7575.
Cargill is a dominant force in the global palm oil industry, producing and trading palm oil from Southeast Asia to the United States, Europe and the rest of the world.
RAN just released a report revealing Cargill's gross violations of Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) standards and Indonesia law. This report shows that at least one of Cargill's plantation in Borneo is responsible for the clearing of rainforests and peatlands, the destruction of watersheds, and large-scale land conflicts with local communities.
Cargill's palm oil is found in many consumer goods sold in grocery stores, including over 100 General Mills products like Cheerios and Lucky Charms. It also poses a direct threat to the survival of endangered orangutans, Sumatran tigers, elephants and more than 20 million Indigenous people dependent on forests for their survival.
Please take one minute to call Cargill CEO Gregory Page, insisting that he act now to protect rainforests, communities and the climate.
Call Cargill's headquarters at 1-800-CARGILL (227-4455) or 952-742-7575.
If you also want to send a quick email after you hang up the phone, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
