    A Blockade to End Kleercuts
    greenpeace usa mai 06
    For
    more than a year, we’ve been pressuring Kimberly-Clark – the maker of
    Kleenex – to stop destroying ancient forests.  We’ve encouraged more
    than 26,000 of our supporters to contact the tissue giant, and ask for
    more recycled content in its products.  But Kimberly-Clark has ignored
    our pleas for too long.  Now, it’s time to do what we do best: a
    blockade at the company’s manufacturing plant.At dawn today, our
    activists locked down the plant in Ontario, Canada.  We’re stopping all
    shipments of materials going into and out of the factory via train and
    truck.  The only things coming out of that building are Kimberly-Clark
    employees. The protest is sending a clear message to the Kimberly-Clark
    shareholders that are participating in their annual meeting in Irving
    Texas.  Two of our activists are attending the meeting and advocating
    for a sustainable forestry resolution which will be voted on
    today.Switching to recycled fiber is not just the right thing to do,
    it’s what customers want. A recent Leger Marketing poll shows that 84
    percent of Americans and 86 percent of Canadian consumers are likely to
    switch to recycled tissue products to prevent harm to forests, and are
    even willing to pay more to do so.  Just yesterday, we received word
    from American University that it will no longer use Kimberly-Clark
    products until the company changes its ways.  Willy Suter, Director of
    Facilities Management, pointed out that the University practices what
    it preaches.
