Orangutan suit for an activist
We like any excuse for dressing up in an ape costume, but if it helps us achieve our campaign goals then even better. Buy an orang-utan suit for a Greenpeace activist so they can dress up and storm headquarters of companies that destroy our furry friends’ homes. This sends an important message to the big cheeses at the companies, and also lets the public know who the culprits are.
How this gift works ...
Sometimes companies that source products grown on deforested land, such as palm oil, need a little wake up call to encourage them to pay closer attention to what their suppliers are doing. Dressing up in animal costumes may seem silly, but companies don’t like it when their customers see our activists outside their buildings all over the news. When we let Unilever know that we didn’t approve of the fact that they were using palm oil grown on rainforest land in products such as Dove by sending the orang-utans round, it didn’t take long for them to agree to support our call for a moratorium on deforestation for palm oil.
