Procter & Gamble (P&G) is the corporation behind brands such as Mr. Clean, Head & Shoulders, Gillette and Oil of Olay. It has pledged to use only deforestation-free palm oil – as of 2020. Please tell P&G that 2020 is too late – the remaining rainforest will be gone by then!

The multinational uses palm oil from producers such as BW Plantation, KLK and Musim Mas that have become synonymous with rainforest destruction and the killing of orangutans. P&G has pledged that its suppliers will document the sources of their palm oil starting in 2015, and it intends to dispense entirely with palm oil from deforestation in 2020. Yet dirty palm oil cannot be eliminated soon enough. 2020 is too late for many areas – the rainforest will be gone by then. Please support the petition to P&G CEO Alan G. Lafley
