“Yum! Brands, the maker of KFC, is blazing a trail of destruction through Indonesian rain forests, chopping down trees and threatening endangered Sumatran tigers to produce its signature crispy chicken buckets, according to a Greenpeace International report released Wednesday.
The report How KFC is Junking the Jungle alleges Yum, KFC’s parent company, uses rainforest wood in their paper products to package food.
Nine Greenpeace activists marched on Yum’s Louisville, Kentucky headquarters Wednesday morning to mark the report’s release, hanging a banner from the building’s pillars emblazoned with a Sumatran tiger and reading KFC Stop Trashing My Home.
“The colonel’s secret is out,” Shane Moffatt, forest campaigner with Greenpeace Canada, told the Star. “They’re keeping their chicken fresh with packaging from rainforests. The last rainforests of the world are ending up as trash on our streets. It’s a needless tragedy.””
KFC—lining the pockets of the 1% while trashing the planet.
Another glimpse of a libertarian future. This is not acceptable.
