Over 100 Michigan Groups And Tens of Thousands of People Call on Kellogg’s to Be a Forest Hero

Over the past week, over 34,000 people have added their names to a petition asking Kellogg to commit to a deforestation-free palm oil policy. These names are added to the over 150,000 who have already demanded it over the course of the Forest Heroes campaign.

They also join the over 100 Michigan businesses, organizations, and institutions who signed onto a letter urging Kellogg to adopt a comprehensive palm oil plan. 

The letter read, in part: 

Dear Kellogg’s CEO John Bryant,

Kellogg’s has long prided itself on sustainability and corporate responsibility and is a well-respected Michigan-based company….

 We also call upon Kellogg’s to adopt a similar comprehensive palm oil procurement policy, building upon the current commitments you have already made.

… We call on you to act before it’s too late to save the world’s last remaining 400 tigers.
