Campaign - Palm oil

Mar. 25th, 2010 | 10:00 am

http://www.greenpeace.org/international/campaigns/climate-change/kitkat/kitkat-action/kit-kat-call

You have sent over 100.000 e-mails to Nestlé asking them to remove palm oil coming from rainforest destruction from their supply chain. They haven't. The reality is that the questions you have raised in your messages to them remain unanswered. In fact, they are beginning to block e-mails coming from other supporters of our Kit Kat campaign.

It's time to give Nestlé a call. Here are three good reasons why:

1. Nestlé has said publicly it will cancel contracts with forest destroyer Sinar Mas in Indonesia - but the reality is it will still be using Sinar Mas palm oil elsewhere, coming from other suppliers like Cargill.

2. Nestlé must commit to real action now to stop dealing with companies destroying rainforests - its not good enough for them to seek to do better by 2015. Rainforests, peatlands and orang-utans cannot wait any longer for Nestlé to take action.

3. Nestle must ensure that it has cut Sinar Mas out of its supply chain completely – meaning it must also no longer buy products from APP, Sinar Mas's pulp company, either.

Ready to give them a call and ask a few polite questions?

Step 1: Here's a suggestion of what you could say to Nestlé:

"I'm calling you today regarding Nestlé's use of palm oil and products that come from destroyed rainforests.

I have already e-mailed you about the use of palm oil from destroyed forests and peatlands in your products.

As a consumer, I don't think it is acceptable for a company like Nestlé to use palm oil or other products such as paper from forest destruction.

I ask that you immediately stop buying Sinar Mas' palm oil or paper products, this includes palm oil or products supplied to you by other companies who are still buying from Sinar Mas.

Nestle has said it is concerned about the serious environmental threat to rainforests and peatlands caused by the planting of palm oil plantations – will Nestle also support a moratorium on forest destruction and measures to protect peatlands in Indonesia?

Please tell your CEO Mr. Paul Bulcke that I'd like him to take action on the points I've just mentioned."

If you would like a bit more background info - here are some additional talking points.

Step 2: Choose a Nestlé customer service phone number from the list provided below and give them a call.

Is a number for your region not there? Well - luckily Nestlé has a very informative page where you can find the number for your area.

OR

Not a phone person? Nestlé also provides a 'Contact Us' form on its website for those who prefer to speak with them this way. You could use the same suggested text for the phone conversation in the Contact Form and personalize the message if you like!

fitness & life

Jan. 21st, 2009 | 12:11 pm
mood: silly silly

So I am a little unhappy in the way I look at the moment, I feel the I have lost my curves. I don't mind my weight I just want to look good again I want to have the body that I had in year 11 and 12. And so I am now walking for 30mins before work and doing a 30min run after work with my brother. But I must use my wii fit as well. I was thinking of organising a fitness day as well to see how well I do - Yes that means the beep test.

Life is good. Still love the job and having a great time with all the work that we have at the moment. I am planning to go to Avcon again this year and also Smash.

This year I will be turning 24!!! Which I think is a great age I mean I am so tired of 23. I think I will like this year because it is the year of the OX.

I am interested in seeing what this year will be like.

NATIONAL STICK IT UP THEIR ASS DAY

Feb. 7th, 2008 | 11:51 am

Got this email.


IT HAS BEEN CALCULATED THAT IF EVERYONE IN AUSTRALIA DID NOT PURCHASE A DROP OF PETROL FOR ONE DAY AND ALL AT THE SAME TIME, THE OIL COMPANIES WOULD CHOKE ON
THEIR STOCKPILES.

AT THE SAME TIME IT WOULD HIT THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY WITH A NET LOSS OVER 4.6 BILLION DOLLARS WHICH AFFECTS THE BOTTOM LINES OF THE OIL COMPANIES.

THEREFORE FRIDAY FEBRUARY 22nd HAS BEEN FORMALLY DECLARED
'STICK IT UP THEIR ASS DAY' AND THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION SHOULD NOT BUY A SINGLE DROP OF PETROL THAT DAY.

THE ONLY WAY THIS CAN BE DONE IS IF YOU FORWARD THIS E-MAIL TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN AND AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN TO GET THE WORD OUT.

WAITING FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO STEP IN AND CONTROL THE PRICES IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. WHAT HAPPENED TO
THE REDUCTION AND CONTROL IN PRICES THE ARAB NATIONS PROMISED LONG AGO? THE PRICES JUST KEEP
GOING UP AND WE NEED TO STOP IT.

PETROL PRICES ARE CAUSING OTHER EFFECTS; AIRLINES ARE FORCED TO RAISE THEIR PRICES, AS ARE TRUCKING COMPANIES . THIS INCREASES PRICES ON EVERYTHING THAT IS SHIPPED. THINGS LIKE FOOD, CLOTHING, BUILDING SUPPLIES MEDICAL SUPPLIES ETC. WHO PAYS IN THE END? WE DO! WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

IF THEY DON'T GET THE MESSAGE AFTER ONE DAY,WE WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN. SO DO YOUR PART AND SPREAD THE WORD.

FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW. MARK YOUR CALENDARS AND MAKE FEBRUARY 22nd THE DAY CITIZENS OF AUSTRALIA SAY 'ENOUGH IS ENOUGH'
