OMG. Can you believe it? Barbie thinks packaging's more important than the planet. Because of her, rainforests are being ripped up and furry animals, like orangutans and Sumatran tigers, are dying. Well honey, I've got news for you, I've got a conscience. So everyone, it's time to save Team Planet. Let's email the boss at Mattel to tell him what we all think.

Very funny video!


Looking at their website, I'm wondering if Green Peace has considered the impact of animal products on the environment? Isn't clearing land for meat production and animal feed crops one of the major causes of deforestation? I also saw issues on ocean crisis and global warming. They seem to talk about sustainable fishing practices but not giving up sea animals entirely. Or giving up coal rather than reducing animal product consumption (meat production being more of a polluter than all the cars in the world combined). May have missed something since I just skimmed through. Surely, those seriously concerned about the environment would take these things into consideration. I don't mean to criticize Green Peace, just curious.

Edit: I also don't mean to invalidate any other changes being made to reduce environmental destruction. Every little bit helps.

Wait, didn't Barbie dump Ken years ago because he wasn't into cocaine-fueled orgies or something? When'd they hook up again?
