No Palm Oil in my Tank
The expansion of palm oil plantations and other food crops to produce fake 'green' fuels (such as bio-diesel) is destroying some of the planet’s remaining rainforests and our most precious wildlife.
BUT WE CAN CHANGE THIS, NOW!
On February 8th the European Commission has published the new rules that should stop palm oil and other food crops that cause deforestation from ending up in our tanks. The rules go in the right direction but they're far too weak.
We have now until March 8th to let the Commission know that: 1) in their current version, the new rules are unacceptable and 2) what changes need doing.
Our experts have analysed the new rules and summarised their flaws in a short message that you can read here. If you’re happy with our suggestions you can participate to the public consultation simply by clicking on ACT NOW. If you wish you can edit your submission in the text box.
TELL THE COMMISSION: NOT IN MY TANK!
It takes less than 60 seconds to save a forest and its inhabitants.

The campaign's petition has obtained the support of more than 650,000 people in the past few months.
