Rang-tan: the story of dirty palm oil
Sign the petition and tell big brands to stop using palm oil from forest destroyers: http://greenpeace.org/saverangtan Rang-tan's forest home is being destroyed to clear the way for palm oil - an ingredient used to make products for brands like Unilever, Mondelez and Nestlé. If we don't act, more precious habitats will be ruined; Indigenous Peoples could lose their homes, and Rang-tan and her species could be lost forever. There's a Rang-tan in my bedroom and I don't know what to do. She plays with all my teddies and keeps borrowing my shoe. She destroys all of my house plants and she keeps on shouting 'oo'. She throws away my chocolate and she howls at my shampoo. There's a Rang-tan in my bedroom and I don't want her to stay, So I told the naughty Rang-tan that she had to go away. Oh, Rang-tan in my bedroom, just before you go, Why were you in my bedroom? I really want to know. There's a human in my forest and I don't know what to do. He destroyed all of our trees for your food and your shampoo. There's a human in my forest and I don't know what to do. He took away my mother and I'm scared he'll take me, too. There are humans in my forest and I don't know what to do. They're burning it for palm oil so I thought I’d stay with you. Oh Rang-tan in my bedroom now I do know what to do. I’ll fight to save your home and I’ll stop you feeling blue. I’ll share your story far and wide so others can fight too. Oh Rang-tan in my bedroom I swear it on the stars: the future's not yet written but I’ll make sure it's ours.

Detox: How People Power is Cleaning Up Fashion
Around the world a growing movement of people are using their creativity, design skills and purchasing power to demand fashion without pollution. United by a shared belief that the clothes we wear should carry a story we can be proud of, activists, bloggers, designers, scientists and models have been able to convince big brands including Zara, Mango, Valentino, UNIQLO and H&M to commit to toxic-free fashion. There is still a long way to go, but our successes so far prove that when we work together, big brands are forced to stand up and deliver. With special thanks to Nova Heart (http://nova-heart.com) for the use of their track "My Song 9" from the Beautiful Boys EP, and to Jeff Garner and Prophetik for the use of their footage in the making of this film.

Detox Fashion
TOXIC IS SO LAST SEASON They say you can tell next season's hottest trend by looking at the colour of the rivers in Mexico and China. That's because global fashion brands like Calvin Klein and GAP are using hazardous chemicals and dyes to make our clothes. These chemicals poison our rivers, and traces of these hazardous chemicals also end up remaining in many of the garments people buy. But it doesn't have to be this way. Around the world, a growing movement of people are calling on clothing brands to make fashion that doesn't cost the Earth. Over half a million people have joined the campaign since November, resulting in the world's largest fashion retailer, Zara, and the world's largest jean manufacturer, Levi's, to commit to clean-up their supply chain and products. True People Power in action. Join fashion-lovers, activists, models and designers in exposing big brands' dirty little secret and demanding fashion without pollution: www.greenpeace.org/detox

Dove Onslaught(er)
http://www.greenpeace.org/kitkat You talked to Dove now talk to Nestlé. Ask them to stop using palm oil from forest destruction. UPDATE: Thanks to the staggering public support for our international Dove campaign in April 2008, Unilever has now agreed to play their part in saving the Paradise Forests of South East Asia. As the biggest single buyer of palm oil in the world, Unilever has a special responsibility to help clean up the industry that's behind so much forest destruction. They have agreed to support the call by Greenpeace for an immediate moratorium on deforestation for palm oil plantations. They have also agreed to urgently contact other major companies calling on them to support the moratorium. This is the first success in a broader campaign to secure real change on the ground in South East Asia -- to stop the palm oil industry from destroying the Paradise Forests. Greenpeace campaigners will work with Unilever for th next six months (starting May 2008) to bring together a major coalition of companies to make the moratorium a reality. We will see at the end of this period how things are progressing and if we need to change our campaign approach. About the music: The song's called "There They Go". It was made specifically for the Greenpeace video by a Czech band called Ohm Square. http://www.myspace.com/ohmsquare

Vicious Circle - narrated by John Hurt
http://www.SaveTheArctic.org Today the Arctic is rising. The campaign was launched today because the Arctic Circle is defined as the area of the globe where on the summer solstice - June 21st - the sun doesn't set for a whole day. Shell is due to begin exploratory drilling at two offshore sites in the Alaskan Arctic in the coming weeks. If Shell is successful this summer, an Arctic oil rush will be sparked and the push to carve up the region will accelerate. Russian oil giant Gazprom is also pushing into the offshore Arctic this year. It is time to Save the Arctic. Images from the film HOME, by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, produced by Europacorp.
Protect Paradise: An Animation about Palm Oil
Palm oil is an ingredient in thousands of products we use every day. But palm oil has a dirty secret: forest destruction. Every year, thousands of hectares of Indonesian rainforest and peatlands - some of the most biodiverse regions on the planet - are being destroyed to make way for new palm oil plantations. We don't have to clear forests for palm oil - solutions exist and some companies are on track to supply clean, responsible palm oil. But we need to take urgent action. We are calling on companies to guarantee their products are free from forest destruction. Clean, responsible palm oil is possible. Join the movement now, and help to Protect Paradise. protectparadise.org (Hungarian subtitles provided by http://infocracy.hu/en)

Greenpeace Shard protest. How it happened. (ft music from Alt-J)
1 skyscraper. 6 women. No permission. http://savethearctic.org Music: "Dissolve Me", generously supplied by Alt-J, supporters of the movement to save the Arctic. At 4:20 in the morning, 11 July 2013, six climbers began a 15 hour climb of Europe's tallest building, the Shard, to send a message to the headquarters of oil giant Shell. This behind-the-scenes film captures the months-long build-up to the climb and the first hair-raising moments when things didn't go to plan. The climb was live-streamed from the activists' helmet cameras in a ground-breaking digital campaign roll-out that represented a "new paradigm", according to leading PR advisor Solitaire Townsend. A live audio commentary overlaid the footage for the whole day -- with Greenpeace presenters interviewing experts and taking comments from as far away as New Zealand (Xena actress Lucy Lawless called in to the show). #Iceclimb trended globally on Twitter and at one point six of the top ten trending topics in the UK were about the protest. In the last 30 years we've lost 75% of the Arctic sea ice volume. And as the ice melts, Shell and other oil companies want to drill there for more oil. Burning that oil only accelerates the melt. It is up to us to stop Shell's dangerous and destructive plans. The climbers: Ali Garrigan, 27 (UK), Liesbeth Deddens, 31 (Netherlands), Sabine Huyghe, 33 (Belgium), Sandra Lamborn, 29 (Sweden), Victoria Henry, 32 (Canada), Wiola Smul, 23 (Poland).

The Great Contaminated Outdoors
Eight Greenpeace teams travelled to well-known remote areas across three continents to collect water and snow samples, and test them for PFCs, the hazardous chemicals used to make outdoor gear waterproof. The expeditions took place far and wide: from China’s Haba Snow Mountains to the Swiss Alps; from the Italian Apennines to the High Tatras Mountains in Slovakia; from the Golden Mountains of Altai in Russia to the stunning Patagonian mountains of Torres del Paine, and from Treriksroset in Northern Europe to Kaçkar Mountains of Turkey. PFCs are already found deep in the ocean, on mountain tops, and within nearly all living creatures. Once released into the environment during industrial production, PFCs persist for millions of years and future generations will continue to be exposed via contaminated water, air and food.

Tuna: Transhipment, Transparency
On the fringes of the Mauritian Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), Greenpeace International campaigners witness how tuna is offloaded from a longliner to a reefer.

PFCs: The Story of a Toxic Little Monster
You might not realise it but our planet is swarming with chemical monsters, from your washing machine to the North Pole. Toxic Little Monsters, like PFCs, are still being used by big companies to make all sorts of products, despite the fact many of them are hazardous and can impact upon our health and the health of our planet. However, alternatives do exist, and forward-thinking brands are already implementing these solutions. Greenpeace's global Detox is calling for a toxic-free future, asking big brands to Detox their entire supply chains of the worst chemicals by 2020.

Stories from the Rainbow Warrior: Sailing in Biscay
Greenpeace's first purpose built campaign sailing ship takes a little getting used to whether you're crew or campaigner. With five sails totalling 1288 square metres of sail area she can do 15 knots on wind power alone -- about as fast as the Esperanza can do under engine. That's a lot of sail to handle for a small crew but the modern hydraulic system that sets the sails makes it all manageable as you can see here.
