Greenpeace has been using this year’s Christmas season to raise awareness of the environmental challenges associated with the traditional home of Santa Claus, the North Pole. Santa (Jim Carter) warns children of the world that his home is being threatened by the melting of Arctic ice. World leaders such as Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin are on his naughty list after they refused to respond to his pleas for concerted action. The ad ends with a call to action to Save Santa’s Home and a link to search for the campaign website, savesantashome.org and sign Greenpeace’s petition.
The Save Santa’s Home site includes a range of donated cards by artists including Raymond Briggs, Modern Toss and Natalie Sutton.
