Greenpeace Confronts Cottonelle in Philly

Cottonelle Tour a Forest Crime Scene

The Cottonelle dog-bus showed up in Philadelphia, and – like New York just weeks ago – Greenpeace was there to stand up for ancient forests. This time the strange looking dog-bus was parked across from Independence Hall in Philadelphia. Cottonelle-hawking marketers invited passersby to come aboard the bus to talk about butts and, of course, buy Cottonelle.

Skipping the butt-talk, Greenpeace activists sprang into action, unfurling a bright yellow “Forest Crime Scene” banner in front of the dog-bus. The activists then beat Kimberly-Clark at its marketing game, talking to hundreds of people about Cottonelle’s connection to ancient forest destruction. Upon learning that Cottonelle, Kleenex, Huggies and other Kimberly-Clark brands wipe away ancient forests, many people pledged to buy other forest friendly tissues.
