Save The Orangutan

Save the Orangutan

Palm oil is one of those ingredients that is just everywhere. It's in things that you wouldn't even have thought should have oil in! The amount of palm oil being used has just rocketed since 2000. The trouble is the way it's being grown. Rainforests are burnt down so that we can plant it. This is very bad news for Orangutans and other species including the local communities.

Palm oil

Palm oil

Quick overview.
2 minutes


How do I know if it contains palm oil?

It should be easy right? Just check the ingredients list for "palm oil", "palm kernel", or "palmate" , or "palm-something". Unfortunately sometimes it's also listed as "vegetable oil" and under other disguises. Decide how far you will go.

Where can I get some stickers?

Well you could make your own or just use what you have about the house, or you can download a template here.

I feel so passionate about this can I sticker the products in the Supermarket too?

That could be construed as "property damage" - a form of "civil disobedience". For more information see RAN Palm oil Party site. Read that then decide. It's up to you.

Beware of

Sustainable palm oil

It's a good idea but before you think everything is okay read what the Ethical Consumer has to say about it or just do an internet search.
