Day 30: KFC, Tigers, and Rainforests ... Oh My!

Chainsaw-welding KFC mascot
It's been slow churning out these letters, so I’m going to cop out and take more ideas from Greenpeace. They’ve got lots of good things going already. Hopefully the blog will diversify organizations a bit in the future....but GP has made it so easy! And that’s why their campaigns are so successful.

The Issue
KFC’s packaging is made from poorly managed rainforests. The endangered Sumatra tiger is at risk because of it.

The below video's finest moment is when the Colonel drawls in his Southern accent "Shove it, hippy!"

The Letter

To: KFC CEO David Novak

It has been called to my attention that KFC's packaging is made from rainforests in Indonesia, including the habitat of the endangered Sumatra tiger.

Please change your packaging to include mainly recycled material, and ensure fibers used are from better managed forests (or from some of the many alternative sources of packaging materials).

I will make sure to discourage family and friends from purchasing KFC until this has been corrected.

Thank you.
