SomeOfUs.org: Palm Oil Victory

I received an email this morning.

Dear Nina

Palm oil

Indonesia is burning. Its beautiful rainforests are being ravaged by forest fires, deliberately set to clear the way for palm oil plantations.

SumOfUs members have sent a clear message to food giants that we won’t let them profit from deforestation.

And we are having a real impact. Starbucks announced a new policy on palm oil only hours after SumOfUs members held a protest outside the first ever Starbucks in Seattle. And SumOfUs members are keeping up the pressure on Unilever and PepsiCo.

We’re having success with our palm oil campaigns, but this industry is huge and we’ll be keeping up the pressure to make sure that all palm oil is responsibly sourced.

We won’t rest until all big food companies source conflict-free palm oil.

The calming rain. – Nina

Sweet rainfall… I awaited for you to cleanse my spirit

Thank you for joining me again, I’m so happy your back

I’m in love with your sound,

to me it’s music of peace, the music of life and the calmness that I crave

Sometimes I place my head to the sky to feel your heavenly touch, it’s orgasmic in its essence

For millions of years you have left and returned, travelling the earth and skies

You make me smile when I’m down, it’s just that since a child we’ve grown closer and closer in this mountainous rainforest I call home

You trickle and drop and exploring unknowns giving life to our plants, animals… all life; for that I thank you

Consider my life to be that of a rain dance; you fit perfectly with traditional flute or hand drum

I will dance with you; the physical rain

And the rains of life.

Reigns of life, rains of life.

pouring down.
