Great new campaign launched today in Switzerland from Solidar, the fair trade organization. They want George Clooney to take his role as UN ambassador serious. He is also the face in all recent Nespresso marketing.
With this campaign Solidar ask people the sign the petition asking Nespresso to stop the exploitation of coffee pickers.
The petition text:
… you campaign as a UN ambassador as well as a champion of peace and justice. That is truly fantastic. But promoting a company that does nothing to stop the exploitation of coffee pickers is really not right.
I would therefore like to ask you make Nestlé choose:
either fair trade coffee or no more George Clooney in the Nespresso commercials.
