Just Say No to Palm Oil
Unfortunately, Palm Oil is used in thousands of products that thousands (if not millions) of people use every day, ranging from baked goods and ice cream to household cleaning products, soaps and shampoos—and can even be found in fuel tanks. There is a considerable amount of forested areas where palm oil is grown, in Indonesia and Malaysia, that are tropical peat soils. Because of the enormous amount of carbon stored in this type of soil, clearing and draining swampy peat-lands ultimately leads to heat-trapping emissions for many years, contributing dramatically to global warming.Why your buying decisions really do matter!
Endangered Species are also affected! The Sumatran orangutan, elephant, and tiger, all of which are critically endangered, as well the endangered Bornean orangutans and pygmy elephants, are being driven toward extinction as their habitat is converted into massive oil palm plantations.
