Event description
Costco is destroying forests at a breakneck pace. Join us at the shareholder meeting to call for rapid changes.

About this Event

We are on the cusp of ecological tipping points. The planet is on fire. And Costco is funding the flames.

This month, Costco is having its annual shareholder meeting. It’s the best chance for us to call on the company’s top executives to adopt clear sustainability reforms.

Costco advertises itself as an ethical company for eco-conscious consumers. Yet a closer look at the company’s products and business contracts tells a different story.

Newly-obtained info from Blooming terminal provides irrefutable evidence that Costco’s top suppliers are among the most environmentally destructive companies in the world - Cargill, JBS, and Tyson Foods. Cargill and JBS played lead roles in driving the devastating fires in the Amazon last summer, while all three are responsible for widespread water pollution, soil erosion, and runaway climate emissions.

That’s not all.

Costco is sourcing toilet paper from highly unsavory companies. Through this Costco is driving the clearing of Canada’s boreal forest, one of the planet’s biggest carbon sinks as well as prime reindeer habitat.

Despite overwhelming evidence of environmental destruction, Costco has so far refused to cut contracts with these eco-villains.

Through the stroke of a pen, Costco could choose not to condemn future generations to a world of climate chaos and broken ecosystems. And yet they sit idly by as the world burns.

Join us at Costco’s shareholder meeting as we demand an end to the destruction.
