Tell Costco and Walmart: the Amazon is NOT for sale!

The Amazon is on fire, and Costco and Walmart are profiting from its destruction.

The fires have been intentionally set by major Agribusiness to clear the land for beef and soy production. And these fires are deliberately targeting the lands of Indigenous Peoples in the Amazon. It’s gut-wrenching, and losing the lungs of our planet impacts each and every one of us. 

So Costco and Walmart selling products from this destruction on their store shelves is an insult to their customers and to you and me.

Tell these leading retailers to remove Amazon destruction from their shelves for good:

The Amazon is on fire. Corporations share the blame. You need to become a part of the solution. 

Multinational corporations helped create the conditions for profiteering at the expense of the lungs of the earth – and these same companies are poised to profit further as today’s fires open up the door for tomorrow’s plantations and ranches.

Global commodity traders like Cargill are the key drivers of deforestation in the Amazon. Their products are then sold by retailers like Walmart and Costco.

Stop destroying the Amazon and contributing to climate destruction!
