This week is the kick-off of Dogwood’s packaging campaign. This campaign targets companies that use paper-packaging products sourced from endangered Southern forests. Think about it: what could be more wasteful than when a company cuts down trees to make the packaging we discard after purchasing the product? Does the box that my Dove soap comes in really need to be made of virgin material harvested from some of the world’s most biodiverse forests?
Dogwood is going to put an end to these egregious paper practices and here’s how: We’ve re-vamped our website, so its sleeker, sexier and more user-friendly than ever. We are getting packaging pledges signed left and right to show companies that the people demand change. And best of all, we’re giving you a chance and a way to tell these companies how you feel about living in an over-packaged society. Click here to sign the packaging pledge and leave share your input on the problem. Visit our website to learn how you can get involved. Yes folks, together we can make it happen.
What an exciting time to be a part of Dogwood Alliance. Start of a new year, new campaign and start of a whole new look and website for us. And above all for me Dogwood is the start of my future as an environmental activist. Working with this organization has been so inspiring for me. Seeing a little non-profit take on all these multi-million dollar corporations and win…it’s like the little engine that kicked ass.
