The ad they don't want us to see

Harvey Norman has been caught red-handed by undercover environmental investigators who found them selling furniture that fuels the destruction of Australia's native forests.

Incredibly, our new TV ad that shows what Harvey Norman are doing to our environment has just been banned from commercial TV by the industry body that classifies ads - because they're scared of what Harvey Norman might do next. So while Harvey Norman spend over $100 million a year on ads - our community movement has been blocked from spending a cent. Help beat the ban by signing the petition and sharing with friends!
Our friends at Markets for Change have spent over a year doing detailed research into the furniture industry in Australia. Starting in ancient forests here in Australia, their investigations took them to China, where undercover teams documented Australian native timber being manufactured into furniture and imported back into Australia by Harvey Norman. Check out the research carried out on the Markets for Change website.


They might block our video on TV -- but they can't stop us reaching millions of Australians by sending it to our friends and family online! Check out the footage they don't want you to see and share it with everyone you can!

Harvey Norman furniture is made from ancient Australian trees that are logged and sent to China for processing. Sign the petition below to stop retailing the destruction of Australia's native forests.

We call on Harvey Norman to implement publicly available procurement policies that rule out stocking products made using timber obtained from the destruction of Australian native forests and to clearly label the source and origin of their wood products.
