We need your help to recruit small and large businesses to take the pledge not to purchase Kimberly-Clark tissue products. The goal of this initiative is to gather the support of 500 businesses who have taken the pledge. We realize that for many large corporations like Kimberly-Clark, what moves them to take action is not always concern about the environment, but more so concern over their revenue streams and the fear of taking a hit in their corporate wallet. Businesses, large and small, as customers and potential customers of Kimberly-Clark, can be a loud voice calling for the protection of ancient forests. These businesses can be from very diverse sectors from restaurants, fitness studios, motels, coffee shops, to law firms, medical clinics,colleges and even grocery stores. Think big and think small.
The purpose of the pledge is to let Kimberly-Clark know that it is not only individuals and families around the world who are concerned about threats to ancient forests, but that businesses, both large and small, are also concerned about forest destruction and want to help protect these forests.
To sign up these businesses, we need concerned people like you who are willing to hit the streets and approach businesses.
