Greenpeace Campaign Success
Posted By Anita Roddick Team on December 13, 2012
Further to our call to action for our supporters to join in Greenpeace’s campaign demanding that Waitrose ends its partnership with Shell earlier this week, we’ve just been told that Waitrose listened and have declared their support for protecting the Arctic and have shelved the planned expansion into Shell petrol stations next year.
This is a massive win and it’s thanks to your pressure, and you made it happen fast!
But the Waitrose campaign is just a small part of Greenpeace’s work to Save The Arctic and they’d love your help in making their global movement grow even stronger before Shell returns to the Arctic new year.
Tell Waitrose To End Their Toxic Partnership with Shell
Posted By Anita Roddick Team on December 11, 2012
Our colleagues at Greenpeace UK would like your support for their Waitrose/Shell campaign. Please send an email to Waitrose demanding they end their partnership with Shell.
Did You Know That Waitrose Is Partnering With One Of The Most Destructive Companies In The World?
Waitrose is starting to open stores at Shell petrol stations across the UK. But a partnership with Shell is a partnership with Arctic destruction. Can you email Waitrose telling them to dump Shell?
What you think matters most to Waitrose. They spend millions on advertising to people just like you. That’s why 10,000 emails to Waitrose will have a huge impact. Their public relations staff will be in crisis mode, forcing executives to reflect on the partnership by responding to their customers and the world.
Making Billions While The People In The Producing Countries Remain Bitterly Poor

Glencore, headquartered in Switzerland, is one of the world’s leading integrated producers and marketers of commodities – it has worldwide activities in the production, sourcing, processing, refining, transporting, storage, financing and supply of metals and minerals, energy products and agricultural products. Glencore is one of the richest companies in the world and who flouts every standard of decent trading with weaker producers. The UK effectively subsidises Glencore by giving aid to Zambia where their treatment of the Zambian people who extract copper revenues is disgraceful.
We urge you to read the below article which appeared in The Guardian and also to sign 38 Degrees’ campaign calling on the Chair of Glencore to be transparent in their treatment of Zambia. You can also watch on BBC IPlayer a recent programme shown on BBC4 called Why Poverty? Stealing Africa which is about Glencore’s copper mines in Zambia.
