Burger King Must End Role in Deforestation

Target: Daniel Schwartz, CEO of Burger King

Goal: End dealings with companies that contribute to deforestation.

Fast food giant Burger King is playing a major role in destroying Brazil’s fragile savannas and watersheds, where diverse plant and animal species thrive, including endangered species. This is because Burger King has partnered with destructive soybean companies to manufacture its meats.

Soybean plantations are clearing an abundance of land in Brazil. The soybeans are then sold to companies that sell the soy to meat companies, which in turn provide Burger King with its meat. Burger King must sever its ties with these companies. In giving them business, they are aiding in the irreversible destruction of our environment.

Demand that the fast food chain end its dealings with these companies and pursue a more sustainable means of food production.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Schwartz,

Burger King is aiding in the destruction of Brazil’s fragile environment. Savannas and watersheds are being destroyed for soybean plantations, which are supplying their goods to companies from which Burger King buys its meat.

Endangered plants and animals are facing extinction and the environment will be irreversibly damaged. Burger King must be more sustainable. I demand that it sever its ties with these soybean plantations.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Burger King needs to stop it’s horrible complicity in the destruction of the environment and animals.
    The agricultural industry and animal farming industry BOTH cause widespread devastation and destruction of life on earth.
    Please watch COWSPIRACY. And please consider going vegan. Veganism is great for the earth and it’s animals and plants!

  2. BOYCOTT BURGER KING!
