Nov 3 - Boreal Day of Action

Leading international environmental organizations coordinated efforts today at more than 350 protests and events across the U.S. and Canada, calling on companies to end the destruction of North America’s largest ancient forest, the Boreal.

This global treasure is under threat. Logging companies, such as International Paper, Weyerhaeuser and Kimberly Clark, are converting this ancient ecosystem into disposable products, such as catalogues, tissue paper and copy paper, primarily for the U.S. marketplace. Going by current rates of destruction, the boreal forest will be gone in 50 years.

When we choose to purchase products from multinational corporations we are choosing to support a corporate-system that prioritizes profit over health, pollution over environmental sanity and centralized control over democracy.
