My name is Emma Thompson. You may know me from films like Love Actually or Nanny Mcphee...or, you may not have the foggiest idea who I am. But today I’m writing to you as a Greenpeace supporter.

Over the years I have been truly moved by everything we have achieved to protect the world’s rainforests and infuriated by companiesthat have chosen not to play their part. They promised that by 2020 rainforests would not be destroyed to grow acre upon acre of palm oil plantations. Palm oil that is in over half the products on our supermarket shelves.

That means we have 500 days to get companies to stick to that promise.

Which is why I have narrated a short, powerful animation following the journey of a little girl and her orangutan friend, Rang-tan. I hope this film makes more people realise the weight of this moment and the opportunity we have to pull back the curtain on unsustainable palm oil for the sake of Indonesia’s rainforests and the orangutans that live there.

CONSTANTIN, Rang-tan is a short video we need people to see so that they know what the palm oil industry is doing to our rainforests - the home of little Rang-tans. Will you take two minutes to watch and share it with your friends? I'd love to know what you think.

Watch and Share Rang-tan on Facebook

Monsanto has been hit with a groundbreaking jury decision that could ultimately cost the evil corporation billions in legal liability.

The jury ruled that Roundup (glyphosate) caused the cancer that's now killing a former public school groundskeeper who was doused with glyphosate.

Last month, I was one of six Greenpeace volunteers who hung giant oil drops and a huge banner from the entrance of Barclays' London HQ. The banner simply read: 'Barclays - the dirty bank'. 

I did it because Barclays is the only UK bank still choosing to fund three planned tar sands oil pipelines in North America. The pipelines would be a disaster for local communities, water sources, wildlife and our climate. I grew up on the route of one of the planned pipelines, so I know just how devastating it would be for our natural world. 

And I did it because actions like this open people's eyes. Tens of thousands of people saw the action and read about the toxic pipeline plans everywhere from the Evening Standard to Facebook. 

But for Greenpeace to keep exposing threats, raising attention and lobbying for lasting change, we urgently need more ongoing support. CONSTANTIN, will you give a regular gift to protect our planet today?
