Tell Disney to protect Indonesia’s rainforests


This is my third post about tigers within the past few days, but that’s because I keep finding so much tiger news! Plus, who doesn’t love tigers? An email from Rainforest Action Network (RAN) informed me that Disney’s children’s books are not monitored to make sure the paper is coming from rainforest-safe paper. In my last tiger post, I mentioned that the tiger population has gone up, but it may go right back down because of the threats to their home. This is one of those threats. Please send this pre-written letter to Disney asking them to make their children’s books from rainforest-safe paper only. Thank you!

Also, if you have kids or are a teacher to children, you might be interested in checking out RAN’s Tiki the Tiger page which explains why it’s important to take care of rainforests for tigers and the story of Tiki, a Sumatran tiger cub.

I sent the letter! Oh, and I signed that tiger pledge, too (on the day you posted about it). I don’t get emails from RAN, so I definitely appreciate you posting this here. =) Thanks! I hope that Disney will do the right thing.

Sending that letter now. Knowing where your materials come from is so easy. Disney should be doing that and more, if you ask me!
