The best news of all if that Nestle is getting a hard lesson in social media and the power of the "crowd" as well as sustainability. After Nestle forced YouTube to take down the video due to copyright concerns, Greenpeace put the video back up on YouTube and other video sites, like Vimeo, and now a deluge of activists like me are starting to spread the word FAST about Nestle all over places like Facebook, Crowdrise, and Twitter. We hear it's working with Nestle saying they've already broken their relationship with Sinar Mas.
Make your own page, pass it around, keep up the pressure, and donate to Greenpeace to continue the badass fighting they do for the poor little guys like the Orangutan's to the left.
