Action Request:Petition

Tropical deforestation accounts for one-fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions, more than the transportation sector worldwide. The biggest driver of deforestation in the Amazon is Brazil’s cattle sector, and one of this sector’s biggest businesses is the leather industry.

Please send a message to brands like Nike, Timberland, Adidas, Reebok, Clark’s, and Geox that you care about where their leather comes from and that it cannot come from Amazon deforestation.
