The well-being of the environment isn't all up to President Obama or individuals after all. There is a very successful organization known as Greenpeace which was put together by a group of citizens in 1971. Their committed and determined mission to bring peace to the environment around us, started with their accomplished attempt to stop nuclear testing in Alaska.
I've had personal interaction with one of the organization representatives and she informed me about all the dangers that are brought in our lives through the simple daily products that we use such as Kleenex. She told me that the Kleenex company uses the trees from ancient forests to make their products. They are destroying as much as 6 soccer fields worth of trees every year. Greenpeace is in the mission to convince the Kleenex company to use recycled materials. According to the Greenpeace representatives, Kleenex is refusing to change its source for creating its products. They think that the people don't care where their tissue paper comes from. But I'm sure that once the people learn about how much Kleenex is responsible for the extinction of green forests, they will want to do something about it. Greenpeace is trying unite those people who do really care where their products come from and would not want to harm the environment. Greenpeace has traveled all over America demonstrating their goals and works, getting people to make donations and sign petitions. Greenpeace strongly believes that it can accomplish their goal to get Kleenex to be green friendly. In the past, the organization was able to change Dove's production plans to be environment friendly, in as little as 8 days with the support from the people.
