Protect the Rainforests by Switching from Palm Oil

Palm oil, produced from trees in the tropical rainforests, is now the most widely used food oil. It is used in snacks, bakery products, detergents, cosmetics and biofuels. However, the production of palm oil is causing massive deforestation in Malaysia and Indonesia. Some studies suggest that at the existing rate of deforestation, there will be no more rainforest in these countries by 2022. This has a devastating impact on wildlife with an estimated 50 orangutans dying every week due to palm oil cultivation. So, check your shopping labels and make sure you stop buying products with palm oil!
