TAKE ACTION to protect old-growth forests and Earth's climate and biosphere:FOREST ACTION ALERT

By Forests.orga project ofEcoInterne


The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) claims to certify the sustainability of forest management. Yet FSC greenwashes industrial scale old-growth forest logging - across an area two times the size of Texas for throw away consumer items such as toilet paper and lawn furniture - as being environmentally sensitive. A new motion has been presented by FSC member Greenpeace at FSC’s General Assembly which would increase protections for primary and other old-growth forests, something which EcoInternet has demanded for a decade. Please make it clear that best science indicates old-growth forest logging is never ecologically sustainable, and FSC must stop claiming it is, starting by supporting Motion 65 to begin to end FSC greenwash of old-growth forest logging.

LIST NOTES:Some bugs related to sending protest emails on our new servers have been fixed. Please continue to Donate to EcoInternet as we still must raise $7,500 to keep our deep ecology activism alive.
