Greenpeace protesters hung from a zipline outside Procter & Gamble's twin towers Tuesday and unfurled two 60-foot banners to protest what the group called P&G's link to tropical deforestation, according to our partners at WCPO.
Banners with the message ""Head & Shoulders, Stop Putting Tiger Survival on the Line" and "Head & Shoulders, Wipes out Dandruff & Rainforests" could be seen hanging from the two towers. There were nine protesters, including one dressed in a tiger custume hanging from the zipline, according to WCPO.
"P&G is buying palm oil linked to rainforest destruction, to make everyday products like Head & Shoulders and Oil of Olay," said Joao Talocchi, Greenpeace Palm Oil Campaigner. "Rainforest destruction is endangering species like the Sumatran tiger and orangutan. We should be able to wash away dandruff without wiping out tigers."
P&G employees called 911 to report the activity, according to WCPO.
