Today, for the second time this month, activists are disrupting business as usual at PepsiCo, this time at its office in D.C. to demand the snack food giant stop deforestation and exploitation.
While activists make noise on the outside of the office, you can help get the message inside.
Call and leave a comment at the PepsiCo corporate switchboard at 1-800-433-2652, then press 0 for a live person in the USA or Canada or find your country's PepsiCo customer service phone number at the bottom of this page.
**Phone calls are most effective, but PepsiCo's United States corporate phone line is only open from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Eastern Time Monday to Friday. If you're trying to leave a comment after hours, please leave your comment on PepsiCo's Facebook page or by Tweeting @PepsiCo.**
You could say something like:
Hello, my name is ___ from _____ and I’m calling you today because PepsiCo’s continued use of Conflict Palm Oil is unacceptable.
Rainforests continue to fall and workers continue to be exploited for the palm oil in PepsiCo's products and in the operations of your notorious business partner Indofood. PepsiCo must take action to eliminate suppliers who are violating human rights and destroying rainforests.
I stand in solidarity with the activists protesting outside PepsiCo's D.C. office today and call on PepsiCo to end deforestation and exploitation.
PepsiCo may tell you that it has a palm oil policy and is committed to sourcing sustainable palm oil by 2020. Unfortunately, its policy falls short of what is needed to stop deforestation and human rights abuses on the ground, including by exempting its notorious Indonesian partner Indofood from the policy and by including oil from problematic "sustainable" sources. The company says it will stop deforestation and exploitation, but refuses to say when it will do so. PepsiCo must demonstrate that it can be trusted to provide products not connected to Conflict Palm Oil.
Please let us know how the call went using the form on the right.
