Does anyone else avoid Palm Oil?
Yes indeed. The companies that use palm oil participate in the destruction of the last outpost of Orangutan habitat. Palm plantations in Indonesia are cutting down & fragmenting the forest. See a picture of a lone creature clinging to a trunk surrounded by desolation. I would urge everyone to write these companies & tell them why. Cross palm oil off of the grocery list.
Yes! It's evil. Whole forests, as well as all the inhabitants of the forests, are burned so palms can be farmed. Mass burnings destroy wildlife and creates pollution adding to climate issues. Read labels and don't by products that contain palm oil. It is used in manufacturing for products like gummy bears, prepared food and candy. We don't need it. Other great healthy choices are avocado oil, olive oil and coconut oil.
