Greenpeace I Living in the Faroe Islands means that you have experienced Greenpeace in action. It also means that your opinion regarding Greenpeace is not as positive as it might have been, without the influence of your fellow countrymen. Credit, where credit’s due. Greenpeace has done a magnificent work when it comes to preserving our environment, even though their methods are questionable and sometimes rude and immoral. From Greenpeaces campaigns against the Faroe Islands, where pilot whale hunting has been the subject, we know them and their methods of argumentation to be detestable. Pictures and video-recordings were manipulated with and information, that we can only laugh at, were feeder to the public.
The questionable procedures that have been used in the campaigns against the Faroe Islands however is not a general perspective of Greenpeace and their actions. But the keyword for Greenpeace and what is common for almost every venture that Greenpeace takes, is that they are active. Greenpeace does not believe in bureaucracy, and is that something that we should respect. Taking on a action for Greenpeace sometimes means that you have to break the law or at least bend it a little.
In USA where they protested against some factories which deliberately lead their toxic waste to lakes nearby, Greenpeace sealed the pipes, from which the toxic waste was coming from and furthermore the activists refused to leave. A up-to-date example could be Mururoa, where the French government held a series of underground nuclear tests and banned all nearby sailing activities meanwhile. Greenpeace had no hesitation, sailed right to Mururoa and stayed there until they were forced to leave by a commando squad. Even though straight on action, seems to be their game, Greenpeace als has it’s own research center, from where the ozone-friendly refrigerators was designed. But direct action’ is still what Greenpeace stands for.

One could say that in a world where bureaucracy blooms and people do not seem to care – Greenpeace is the rebel. II Pat Hanson 875 Green Street Seattle, WA 98116 USA Greenpeace Denmark Linnsgade 25 1361 Kbenhavn K 1 October 1995 Dear Sirs Being a environmentalist like myself and having followed Greenpeaces ventures with interest and expectations, I have gained respect and admiration’s for your organization and the work it has been doing for the environment. It is therefore I write to you, now that I am going to start my own shop in the centre of Copenhagen. The name which I have chosen to my shop is GREEN MACHINE The goods will consist of environmental literature and environmental articles to begin with. To mention but a few ecological articles, I am planning to sell, are: Clothes Caps Bags Toiletries I believe that the shop can be a success and my degree in business administration will be a reliable help to make that happen. My financial status is also good and I intend to spare no expense in the making of the GREEN MACHINE shop.
For me it would an honour and a privilege to sell Greenpeace articles in my shop and I hereby ask for your permission to do so. I believe that a business deal between us would be beneficial to both parts, since your goal obviously is to reach as many customers as possible with your merchandises. I look forward hearing from your and to eventually do business with you in the future.

As you see, we have comprehensive sale of Greenpeace-merchandises and as a multinational association we have sur ten obligations and restrictions. Therefore we are sorry to inform you that you may not sell Greenpeace-merchandises in the shop, which your are planning to open in Copenhagen. On the other side we naturally always are interested to encourage the sale of ecological articles, even though this gives our own shops increased competition. Therefore we would like to help you getting started with your shop by sharing our experience with you. Greenpeace does know to aggressive advertising campaigns, and we could perhaps help you in this area. We therefore ask you to contact Henrik Green, which is the leader of our marketing department.
We hope that you may succeed in establishing a shop in Copenhagen. Yours faithfully Greenpeace Denmark Chris Smith.
