Costco, Pizza Hut and Dunkin Donuts Aid Species Extinction

Scary Business! Pizza Hut and Dunkin' Donuts serving up rainforest destruction

It doesn’t get much scarier than discovering that both Pizza Hut and Dunkin’ Donuts are adding a gruesome side of "forest destruction" with every meal. These fast food monsters are serving up extinction for species like orangutans, Sumatran tigers, and sun bears. That’s because a very spooky company, Sinar Mas, is slaying tropical rainforests in Indonesia and sucking out palm oil for hungry fast food companies like Pizza Hut and Dunkin’ Donuts to use in their products.

This horror story doesn’t have to end badly. Last month, Burger King announced that it’s cutting Sinar Mas out of its supply chain. If Burger King can do it, so can the rest of the fast food industry.

Tell Dunkin’ Donuts and Pizza Hut to dust the cobwebs off their environmental policies by cutting forest destroyers like Sinar Mas out of their supply chains once and for all.

The haunted aisles of Costco

If you’ve been into Costco’s lately to stock up for your Halloween party, you may have felt a chill as you walked down the haunted seafood aisle.

We love Costco for their low prices, but are horrified that the wholesale club is destroying our oceans. Costco is gobbling up red list fish species and leaving its customers in the dark by hiding the truth from them.

It’s time for Costco to put an end to their witches brew, "red list" fish with a heaping of ocean destruction.

take action today

Tell Costco to give our oceans a ghost of a chance - implement a sustainable seafood policy and stop selling red list seafood.
