Kellogg’s is a Michigan company. They should not be partnering with the least sustainable corporation in the world. If you would like to learn more and help us move Kellogg’s to stop rainforest destruction, please RSVP today!

Kellogg’s is a Michigan institution with a famed American icon, Tony the Tiger, but right now they’re doing business with Wilmar International, ranked the least sustainable corporation in the world – worse than Exxon Mobil and Monsanto. Wilmar bulldozes rainforests to harvest palm oil, which is then used in Kelloggs’ cereals and snacks. This deforestation destroys the homes of endangered species like Sumatran tigers, orangutans and other wildlife, and is a top driver of climate change.

We envision a world where rainforests are protected, not destroyed for profit. Changing the practices of companies like Wilmar will go a long way toward achieving that goal. The good news is that Kellogg’s can demand sustainable palm oil, but they’ll only act if they see that their neighbors here in Michigan want them to do the right thing.

Come to the Forest Heroes Campaign Kick-off Meeting to learn how you can get involved here in Grand Rapids and move Kellogg’s to protect the rainforest!

Please RSVP here, and bring a friend!
