Tasmania's magnificent forests STILL sold as 'eco' wood! Dob in Ta Ann
It’s hard to believe, but one of Malaysia's biggest wood cartels is ripping through the Tasmanian wilderness, sourcing wood that comes from the destruction of high conservation value forests, including forests nominated for World Heritage listing, and selling it in Japan as "eco-friendly” plywood.
We need your help to stop this environmental abuse now. Ta Ann supplies companies like Panasonic who may then unwittingly believe the eco-spin and buy this plywood, selling it on to Japanese housing companies and the public.
Keep sounding the alarm, send Ta Ann's corporate customers a message now!
Tasmania's outstanding native forests remain at risk of continued industrial scale destruction, despite the conclusion of a Forest Agreement between the forestry industry and some environmental groups. Controversially Ta Ann will continue to receive wood from forests that have been scientifically verified as national and world heritage value, including those nominated for World Heritage listing. Forests that are proposed reserves will continue to be destroyed by logging for up to 6 months.
We want Ta Ann's corporate customers - Panasonic, Sekisui House, Daiwa House, Japan Kenzai and Eidai to know the truth about where these products come from. They need to know that the ongoing destruction of Tasmania's forests, including those it is agreed should be protected, cannot be accepted as "eco-friendly” plywood on the international market.
It is now more important than ever to keep pressure up for this logging to stop. Ta Ann should get clear market signals that their customers want Tasmania's forests protected immediately. Visit www.taann.net for more information.
