Greenpeace puts Barbie on notice; protests Mattel's use of Indonesian trees in packaging
According to the Los Angeles Times, Greenpeace is protesting Mattel's use of packaging purportedly made from wood taken from Indonesian rainforests.
"Barbie's dirty secret is that her packaging is made from the rain forests of Indonesia," Rolf Skar, senior forest campaigner for Greenpeace USA, tells the LA Times. "Mattel has shown no due diligence. It buys paper without asking where it's coming from."
As of this writing, Barbie had no comment.
