One of Asia Pulp and Paper's
Australian companies has been caught in an embarrassing PR incident, in which
clumsy personal attacks on Greenpeace campaigners and others have been traced
back to its staff.

Yesterday's handover ceremony for the Rainbow Warrior II was an emotional affair. As you can see from the images above, one or two tears were shed as she was handed over to her new owners.
With the Rainbow Warrior II renamed Rongdhonu and sailing off for a new career as a medical vessel, the launch of her replacement - Rainbow Warrior III - is imminent. We're still raising funds for our new vessel so please make a donation to keep a rainbow campaigning on the ocean waves.
Painting over the Greenpeace emblem on the Rainbow Warrior II
After 52 years at sea - with 22 years as a Greenpeace ship - the current
Rainbow Warrior is heading for a new life. Over the last few days the
bell was removed, the ship’s dolphin mascot taken down and the Rainbow
Warrior’s named painted over.
For twenty two years she’s been our trusty workhorse, a symbol of
inspiration, a bringer of hope and a home for her hundreds of crew. But
now it’s time for the Rainbow Warrior to move on and we'd like to collect memories from everyone who has sailed, seen or simply been inspired by her.
Cleared forest in Sumatra, in what was once tiger habitat
The news from Indonesia today that Asia Pulp & Paper (APP)
has moved a tiger from one part of South Sumatra province to another in order to protect it. This is
supposed to prove that company has green stripes. But, as with anything emanating
from the APP publicity machine, scratch beneath the surface and you'll find an
altogether different tale.

We assembled at about 8am this morning near to Cairn Energy's offices in Edinburgh. It was a strange gaggle of people in suits and an army of polar bears. Such a gathering was going to attract attention so we couldn't hang about - we crossed Festival Square which was starting to get busy with people heading for work and straight through the doors of Cairn's office building.
It's July so the last thing any
sane person will be thinking about is Christmas. Not so for those in the toy
business because, with only 165 shopping days to go, they're looking ahead to
the festive season.
Take Hasbro, for instance. Today,
product and marketing managers have been showing off the new lines for
Christmas to retailers and journalists and we thought we'd pop along as well.

Our Barbie campaign has struck a cord with many people and when you realise how ridiculous it is that rainforest timber ends up in disposable toy packaging, it's not surprising. It's also not surprising that it's having an effect on the ultimate end users of Mattel's products – kids.
