Greenpeace: ACTION ALERT: World Champion of Forest Destruction March 01, 2006 2:49 PM

Greetings,

The Olympics are over, but one last Olympic-sized medal was handed out today in Knoxville, Tennessee. 75 student activists showed up at Kimberly-Clark’s U.S. Administrative Headquarters to deliver a giant trophy filled with 10,000 petitions, branding Kleenex as the world's #1 Forest Destroyer. Congratulations Kleenex: you have excelled in your sport, wiping out four million tons of virgin forests EVERY YEAR!

The activists dressed up as athletes and conducted a mock awards ceremony, with Kleenex grabbing the gold and Scott and Cottonelle close behind. K-C employees drifted by while students called corporate executives to congratulate them on their company’s victory. Speeches peppered the ceremony, detailing K-C's role in the destruction of forests, habitat, and locals' lives in Canada's Boreal.

*** Take Action! Send Kleenex your own gold medal. ***

Sincerely,

Beka, Christy, Nick, Pam

and the rest of the Kleercut Olympic Team
