Victoria is hiding a dirty little secret, exposed today by lingerie wearing protestors in central Sydney and Melbourne. Around 15 models braved the cold and stripped down to expose the fact that Reflex Paper is sourced from logging that is pushing Victoria’s emblem, the Leadbeaters Possum, to the brink of extinction .
 
 Victoria’s Central Highland forests are being logged, processed and sold as Reflex Paper in Officeworks stores nationwide – despite alternative, plantation sources being available.
 
 “We are calling on Officeworks to stop the greenwash and honor their own policies” said Peter Cooper, Campaigner for The Wilderness Society Sydney.
 
 “Officeworks is well aware that scientists are saying that this logging is pushing species incredibly close to extinction – yet they continue to support forest destruction and the Reflex brand.”
 
 The protest was held by the buffed and beautiful Wilderness Society who wore skimpy Victoria’s Secret style lingerie to reveal the truth.
 
 “We’ve exposed both ourselves and Officeworks today, showing that their environmental policies are no more than shameless greenwash” said protestor Malcolm Fisher, who was wearing a black and pink corset and briefs at the time.
