Earlier this year, Iceland Foods, a UK supermarket chain, released a video promising that its own products will be completely palm oil free by the end of 2018. This video, with a statement from managing director Richard Walker, explained the basics of the issue and showed Iceland’s passionate commitment to providing customers with palm oil free options.
And then, two days ago, Iceland released this beautiful animated video. Originally from Greenpeace, the video was banned from airing on TV because it was “directed toward a political end,” according to the British organization Clearcast, which pre-approves advertisements. Since when is rainforest destruction a political issue?
Change.org has initiated a petition to release the video on TV, which has been signed by over 500,000 people. Sign the petition today in order to spread the word and take action against rainforest destruction!
