STOP BUYING PALM OIL. Rain forests cover 60 per cent of Indonesia, but orangutans - which means man of the forest - have seen their habitat cut down at an alarming rate, often to fuel the need for space to grow palm oil crops. Many adult orangutans are killed by farmers in Indonesia and Borneo to prevent them eating crops as their natural food disappears, leaving helpless orphans to die in the wild.
Say no to palm oil. It's in so much stuff, girl scout cookies, soap, chips, cookies, cleaning products - too many to name here. Using it causes massive deforestation and is decimating the orangutans in the wild. It is often called vegetable oil, but has saturated fats in it so that can be a clue, or Elaeis guineensis. Please research this for yourself and find out what is going on.
Say no to palm oil! It's not worth destroying a habitat and the beautiful creatures within it. Orangutans are critically endangered, primarily because of greed and the production of palm oil. Shop smart!
