Your little cat at home is more than just a furry face and can—with a little help from you—make a huge difference for big cats! By standing up for deforestation-free palm oil, your feline friend can join kitties everywhere already helping to save their larger cousins in the wild.
Fewer than 400 Sumatran tigers remain as oil palm plantations continue to overtake their habitat and threaten their survival. Companies using this type of oil in their products (like Mars, Kellogg’s, General Mills, and The Body Shop) have committed to stop buying palm oil that destroys forests. Some have already started working on it, but they still have a long way to go before meeting their 2015 deadlines.
Sending a photo of your cat—or just you—with an “I Support Deforestation-Free Palm Oil” message is a purr-fect way to show companies that you care and tell them you want to hear more about the progress they’re making towards using palm oil that’s deforestation-free.
We’ll share your sentiments with the companies you choose to help keep them on track and let them know little cats are fighting for big cats. After all, who can resist the power of the paw!
Thank you for being a big cat hero!
