The Wetland Activism collective staged a protest and direct action at the Manhattan Mall to expose Victoria's Dirty Secret: Victoria's secret is destroying the forests for its catalogues. Victoria's Dirty Secret. At the protest, the Wetlands collective flyered, chopped up mock trees with its shopping cart monster, entered the mall with banners, were kicked out, not arrested, almost got a massive balloon banner into the store, got it out and hung it outside on 33rd and Brodway for all to see. After that, they headed over to the other Victoria's Secret on 34th and 6th and caused another ruckus inside . . .
By mailing more than a million catalogs a day, Victoria's Secret is leading the way in global forest destruction. Approximately 395 million catalogs are mailed by Victoria's Secret each year--that's more than one million a day. Almost all of these catalogs are produced from virgin fiber paper with little or no recycled content. Paper for these catalogs is destroying Endangered Forests like the great northern Boreal forest of Canada. Victoria's Secret is also destroying forests in the Southern U.S. The Southern U.S. is one of the most biologically diverse regions of our country where nearly six million acres of forest are logged each year, primarily for the production of paper.
