    Greenpeace's hand-painted story of an orangutan pressures Unilever and Nestlé on palm oil

    GREENPEACE has launched a 90-second film to raise awareness of the destruction of rainforest habitats in Indonesia to make way for palm oil plantations. Voiced by actress and Greenpeace ambassador Emma Thompson, the spot begins as a light-hearted children's story of a little girl fed up of a cheeky orangutan which has taken residence in her bedroom.
