Iceland’s Christmas TV advert banned for being too political

Supermarket’s Greenpeace film on palm oil’s impact on orangutan deemed rule breach

They don’t ban the advertising for the products though.

Iceland’s Christmas campaign has been banned from TV because it has been deemed to breach political advertising rules.

As part of its festive campaign the discount supermarket struck a deal with Greenpeace to rebadge an animated short film featuring an orangutan and the destruction of its rainforest habitat at the hands of palm oil growers.

Earlier this year, Iceland became the first major UK supermarket to pledge to remove palm oil from all its own-brand foods. Habitat loss in countries such as Malaysia – a major global producer of palm oil – has contributed to the orangutan now being classified as critically endangered.

Washington Press Club hosted a hit job on Greenpeace the other day…

“Some NGOs were invited: Really?  Why not Greenpeace—the subject of this campaign?”

Nor was the security person just anyone. Schwab and Cray recognised him as Jay Byrne. Byrne is the former head of corporate communications for Monsanto (1997-2001).

 

“Golden Rice” Bullshit Claims Debunked:

This latest PR assault by Monsanto et al. demonises activists for allegedly stopping the introduction of the miracle cure, Golden Rice. This claim is nonsense, as Greenpeace and other activists have no regulatory power in the real world.

Their “Golden Rice” simply doesn’t fucking work…

Genetically modified Golden Rice falls short on lifesaving promises

“The simple fact is that after 24 years of research and breeding, Golden Rice is still years away from being ready for release.”

TOXIC IS SO LAST SEASON

They say you can tell next season’s hottest trend by looking at the colour of the rivers in Mexico and China. That’s because global fashion brands like Calvin Klein, GAP and Victoria’s Secret are using hazardous chemicals and dyes to make our clothes. These chemicals poison our rivers, and traces of these hazardous chemicals also end up remaining in many of the garments people buy. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Around the world, hundreds of thousands of people are calling on brands to make fashion that doesn’t cost the Earth. Just this week, the world’s largest retailer ZARA committed to clean-up their supply chain after over 320,000 people joined the campaign calling on the brand to Detox. True People Power in action. Join fashion-lovers, activists, models and designers in exposing big brands’ dirty little secret and demanding fashion without pollution.
