Take a break - for the rainforest

I used to love Kit Kat. When I was 15 and at an English comprehensive for a few months, I sometimes hated the school lunches so bad, I went straight to the junk machine and got myself a few Kit Kat instead. I remember sitting in the school yard feeling a little guilty - but also very happy. Then, one terrible day, Kit Kat was bought by nasty Nestle. I haven´t bought a Kit Kat since. Good thing, too, as it now turns out that Kit Kat contains palm oil that destroys forests. Greenpeace uncovered as much today - and Nestle promptly reacted by forcing youtube to take down the Greenpeace campaign video. Stupid, I´d say. The video, for sure, will now spread like wildfire. Curious what Nestle does not want you to see? Have a look (though you might want to wait until after your lunch break ...)

P.S. We won this round! Now let´s get HSBC out of destructive lending as well.
