Outdoor Furniture Campaign

Companies: Target | Wal-Mart

Rainforest Relief is campaigning to end Target’s use of endangered tropical wood in their seasonal outdoor furniture and children’s furniture. Kapur and Nyatoh wood originate from the dwindling old growth rainforests of Southeast Asia, and Kapur is on the IUCN Red List of Endangered Species. Rainforest Relief is asking consumers to take action by calling Target CEO Robert J. Ulrich and implore him to follow Kmart’s lead in ending the purchase and sale of products that destroy critical biological diversity.
