The pressure is mounting and the supermarkets are paying attention. Join us in giving this one last push – #NotInMyTrolley!
Big brands are still profiting from child labour in palm oil plantations. It’s time to take the pressure up a level by focusing on three of their biggest clients in Australia – Woolworths, Coles and Aldi.
We’ve found child labour at the root of palm oil production in Dettol, Pringles in China, Breeze and Rexona. We want to know if KitKat, Smarties, Birds Eye, Dove, Head & Shoulders, Herbal Essences and Oral B products – to name just a few – also contain child labour.
Children as young as eight are doing back-breaking and dangerous work on these palm oil plantations, all while the brands we know so well turn a pretty profit in the billions.
The big brand companies are feeling the pressure but are not yet convinced. It’s time to step up the pressure by going hard on Australia’s largest supermarkets.
Woolworths, Coles and Aldi stock many of these household brands, essentially green-lighting child labour and worker’s rights abuses.
It’s time Woolworths, Coles and Aldi stood up for what’s right and customers are vital in making that happen. If customers are unhappy, supermarkets will act in order to protect their own reputation and profits.
Following our campaign targeting the manufacturers of these products, Coles and Aldi have met with Amnesty to discuss our concerns. They listened to what we had to say and expressed their own concern but have not yet committed to taking the actions needed to end child labour. Amnesty have not yet been able to meet face to face with Woolworths but have had initial phone conversations with them to express our concerns.
