More Controversy for Kimberly-Clark

The controversy over Kleenex manufacturer Kimberly-Clark escalated today as activists staged a sit-in at the American Company's Canadian headquarters in Toronto, Ontario. It is the latest of a series of confrontations with Kimberly-Clark in Europe, the United States, and Canada in an ongoing international campaign to get the world’s largest producer of tissue products to stop using virgin pulp from clearcut ancient forests to make its well known Kleenex brand. As of this morning, four Greenpeace activists have locked themselves down in the offices of the company demanding that it stop destroying Canada’s Boreal Forest. Others are broadcasting chainsaw noises and spreading woodchips in the corridors to further disrupt operations at the American company’s Canadian headquarters.
