Why choose palm oil free?

Rainforests are being cut down to grow palm oil which is found in half of all supermarket products.

Orangutans only live in the rainforests of Borneo  and Sumatra, and their homes are being destroyed for palm oil plantations.
Orangutans are now critically endangered and will soon be extinct unless we look after their forests.

 
What you can do?
 

Look at the ingredients list of the products you buy.
If you see palm oil listed, contact the company to  find out how it has been sourced. Tell them that you do not want to buy products which are destroying the rainforest.
Try switching to palm oil free alternatives.
Support organisations working to save the rainforests.
