Who is Rune?
Rune Leithe is a forester based in Gothenburg, Sweden. He is an experienced environmental campaigner, and a passionate advocate for positive change in the world.
Rune spent seven years working for Greenpeace International where he honed his campaigning skills across a range of sustainable forestry issues. This included the toxicity risks of pulp and paper bleaching.
Since 1995 Rune has worked as an independent adviser and consultant for leading NGOs around the world. His ability to see the bigger picture has helped organisations develop winning strategies for their CSR campaigns and engagement programmes. Most recently, he was part of the research team behind the documentary ‘Tampon: Our Closest Enemy’.
“The documentary and the French Government report have both highlighted the dangers of using toxic tampons and diapers – now we must keep the spotlight on this issue. That’s why I created this social media platform and petition, to raise public awareness even further and drive the scale of change needed.”
