Director of Greenpeace’s USA’s Forest Campaign
From protecting our oceans to protecting our forests to promoting toxin free living to promoting sustainable agriculture, Greenpeace is front and center on issues that impact all of our lives. Since 2007, Rolf has contributed to international Greenpeace campaigns to stop deforestation in the Canadian boreal forest, the Paradise forests of Southeast Asia and the Brazilian Amazon. Be prepared to hear about why the kind of toilet paper and tissue paper you use matters. Get ready to have some of the myths you might have in your mind about Greenpeace challenged as Rolf shares with us Greenpeace’s leadership role in ancient forest protection as well as their pioneering work with a new certification system called the Forest Stewardship Council. Skar will explain why we need to do logging, that we do it the right way, and that it’s sustainable for the future. Listen and learn with me! This show sponsored by The Fairfax Companies.
