Ethical Consumer launches boycott campaign

 

Leading UK brands, including Superdrug, Nouvelle recycled toilet paper and 3 mobile are owned by companies profiting from the environmentally devastating exploitation of the Canadian tar sands for oil. HSBC, RBS and Barclays are also all playing a significant role in financing tar sands mining.


Ethical Consumer is calling for a boycott of brands owned by companies who are profiting from the climate change timebomb of the tar sands exploitation.

 

Join the Tar Sands campaign.
