Greenpeace + Wall*E = One Very Clever Socially Conscious Short

In what must surely be the height of tragic irony, Kimberly-Clark is using Wall*E, a movie about conservation, to sell Kleenex, a disposable paper product containing absolutely no recycled content.

Greenpeace teamed up with Mark Fiore, celebrated political cartoonist and friend of Greenpeace, to make this animated short. It features a new character called Kleer*E who gobbles up forests and spits out boxes of Kleenex.

Join them in telling K-C to stop the Iron*E! Instead of putting money towards looking like they're "green," the company needs to actually become green by improving their environmental practices.
