  1. Petition Amazon crime in UK gardens?

    Rare Amazon trees are being cut down by criminal loggers and turned into luxury garden decking. And it’s for sale at builders merchant Jewson!   We’ve reported Jewson to the UK government regulator. But if we kick off a big enough threat to their reputation as a responsible company, we could get them to stop selling dodgy wood in days, not months. We can do it with a huge and fast-growing petition.    Can you sign now to demand Jewson stop plundering the Amazon? https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/amazontimber2   The criminal loggers use sophisticated scams to give their illegal timber a legitimate-sounding cover story. You won’t find Amazon timber at B&Q and Homebase - but you will at Jewson.   A two-year Greenpeace investigation and an undercover sting in April have revealed they buy wood from the riskiest part of Brazil, where almost 80% of logging is illegal.     A salesman for Jewson’s partner company told our undercover investigator that the paperwork from Brazil, claiming to show where the timber comes from, is "not worth much more [than] what it's written on”.    The Amazon rainforest is living, breathing, vast and beautiful.  It’s home to millions of animal, plant, insect and bird species. Yet criminal loggers smash roads right through it to get to rare trees, roads that are often later used to start fires for illegal land clearance.   Recently, together we got Oriental & Pacific Tuna to stop using fishing methods that kill turtles and sharks after targeting their biggest retailer, Tesco. And we got Procter & Gamble to agree to stop buying palm oil from companies that destroy Indonesia’s rainforests.   Now let’s do it for the Amazon.   Sign the petition: https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/amazontimber2 Jewson claims that the wood it sells is legal but the only evidence they can point to is exactly the same paperwork used by criminal gangs to disguise illegal timber. Time to call them out - sign now.
