Tragically, most of the world’s original forests have already been lost or degraded, and those that remain are falling fast. The scale and pace of deforestation in Indonesia alone is so extreme it is having devastating consequences for species, communities and the climate. RAN’s campaigns are designed to confront the two primary drivers of this destruction, the expansion of palm oil plantations and logging by the pulp and paper industry.

RAN fights against the biggest global drivers of deforestation—from the palm oil trade to the publishing industry; from high fashion labels to the biggest banks in the world.

It may seem like a headline from 2007 or 2008, when the huge ecological impact of Indonesia's relentlessly expanding palm oil plantations first really started being scrutinized, but as 2012 approaches the halfway mark (and the Rio+20 conference is fast approaching) a new report in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences tells us that the palm oil situation is even worse than we thought.

Palm oil is found in nearly everything, yet have you ever wondered who makes it? How it's processed? What palm fruit looks like? Take a tour through a Honduran palm oil plantation to learn more.

Most people don’t know an old-growth tree from their elbow, so our challenge in this campaign was to bring the strong-yet-vulnerable nature of these trees into focus. We were first hired to do a single ad, but we quickly hit on a campaign theme that reminded people that their buying habits were part of the choice between stumps and trunks. The campaign had a strong logo, a branded look, and a compelling call to action to help RAN get average consumers involved in saving these majestic trees.

Advertising and Design for Social Change

Since it was founded in 1985, the Rainforest Action Network has been working to protect rainforests and the human rights of those living in and around those forests. From the beginning, RAN has played a key role in strengthening the worldwide rainforest conservation movement through supporting activists in rainforest countries as well as organizing and mobilizing consumers and community action groups throughout the United States.
