Applaud Hershey for Cutting Ties with the Deforestation Industry

Target: Michele Buck, President and CEO of Hershey

Goal: Thank Hershey for its decision to stop sourcing its products from areas where deforestation runs rampant.

Leading chocolate producer Hershey has taken a huge step to end deforestation by bringing an immediate end to its sourcing of products from areas where deforestation is rampant. No cocoa will be sourced from areas with deforestation.

By removing itself from the dangerous and deadly cycle that supports deforestation, Hershey has shown itself to be a company that takes the future of our planet seriously. This move will help bring a swifter end to illegal deforestation. In addition to its decision, effective immediately, Hershey is also releasing a 2018 forestry plan that will include tree-planting goals, monitoring regulations, and more.

Hershey has shown itself to be the cocoa industry’s leader in the fight against deforestation. Sign the petition to thank the chocolate company for taking a stand to protect our planet’s natural ecosystem. However, remind Hershey that there is still much to do and ask that they take their promises seriously.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Buck,

Thank you for leading the way in the cocoa industry’s fight against deforestation. By taking an immediate step to stop sourcing from areas of deforestation, your company will help end illegal deforestation by robbing the industry of a valuable economic source.

I appreciate and applaud your actions and I hope other chocolate companies follow your lead. However, I wish to remind you that more must still be done and I hope your company continues to lead the way against deforestation.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
