Protect World’s Rainforests from Destruction

Target: Nigel Travis, CEO of Dunkin’ Brands

Goal: Stop aiding and abetting the destruction of the environment via rainforest killer palm oil.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of acres of lush rainforest are destroyed, their remnants harvested for one ingredient: palm oil. Countless corporations have utilized this substance in cooking and other common commercial products. Increasingly, however, more companies are pledging to purchase a far more environmentally friendly version of the oil: deforestation-free palm oil. Despite these promising commitments, many influential companies, particularly in the fast food arena, still hold out. Popular doughnut maker Dunkin’ Brands stands among the most egregious and long-standing offenders.

Palm oil is found in the fruits of trees populating rainforests in countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia. The substance remains a popular product because of its efficiency as an ingredient and its relatively low cost. Environmental concerns and human rights issues associated with palm oil harvesting are widespread and yet companies continue to rely on this cheap, yet destructive oil.

Sign this petition and demand that Dunkin’ Donuts finally honor its commitment by tracking the source of its palm oil and championing products and production methods that preserve our environment.


Dear Mr. Travis,

While countless other companies spanning all industries make public and concerted improvements towards a future of deforestation-free, sustainable palm oil, you continue reaping profit from a product that does irreparable harm to our environments.

Rainforests give us some of Earth’s oldest living fixtures. Further, these sprawling lands not only house some of the world’s most unique, vibrant wildlife, but they fuel our very existence, providing roughly 20 percent of the world’s oxygen. Yet every day, more of these precious lands shrink, their grounds littered with charred, broken trees. Much of this abuse is committed in the name of palm oil and corporate production.

Stand with your competitors and allies alike in saying ‘no more’ to this wanton disregard for our environment and our very livelihoods. Honor the pledge toward more responsible and humane palm oil production. Do not rest on empty words. Make a strong statement about your company’s responsibility to your consumers and to the planet we all call home.
