SOS: Save Our Southern Forests!

 

Our coastal forests are at risk. The biggest threat to forests across the South is the expanding biomass industry that is leveling trees at a rate that is impossible for these forests to sustain. Our beautiful forests are being clear-cut, processed into pellets, and then shipped to Europe to be burned for electricity. Today, GRN is taking part in a National Day of Action to oppose the biomass industry that threatens forests across the South.

Our forests aren’t fuel. Please take action today.

Today, November 13th, as the wood products industry meets in Chesapeake, VA, people from across the U.S. are coming together for a National Day of Action to send an SOS to Save Our Southern forests. With 20 existing wood pellet facilities, and 33 more proposed, now is the time to increase pressure on corporate executives and EU policymakers.

Join us today, and send an SOS to EU policymakers asking them to Save Our Southern forests.

It is our goal to send more than 10,000 messages to EU policymakers. After you take action, help us reach our goal by sharing the SOS National Day of Action with your social media networks using the hashtag #SOSForests.
