Conserving what's left, renewal, growing new ones, and hearing from the many peoples facing loss of their communities due to the mismanagement and exploitation of forests this special collection gets its start with the launch of the Global Forest Watch (GFW)
GFW is a project where the World Resource Institute brought together fourteen major sponsors, including Rebecca Moore of Google Earth who pioneered the use of mapping to protect our lands and people, enables our citizens to participate in and benefit from an "open data approach in putting decision-relevant information in the hands of governments, companies, NGOs, and the public."

Rang-tan in My Bedroom by Iceland Foods
One food retail chain, Iceland Foods, didn’t even make it to air before this ad was banned/blocked, leading to more publicity than the retailer may have ever expected. The ad, “Rang-tan“, was not approved as it was created by Greenpeace, a political organisation, and political advertising is absolutely not allowed on British TV.
Saving our friends and our environment is political, but advertising products and services destroying our planet is not?
Iceland Foods uploaded this Christmas commercial to their YouTube channel where it generated 3.7M views within the first 3 days of being released.
