“If you need to produce palm oil, you need to remove forest,” Gatti said. “That’s what we’re seeing.”

THE FACTS

  • Since 2007, the forest loss has been about 41,000 HECTARES PER YEAR.
  • In areas where sustainable practices are required, more than 38 PERCENT of the land has been deforested.
  • That compares with 34 PERCENT where there is no sustainability requirement.
  • There is no such thing as sustainable tropical forest destruction.

    Don’t Be Palm Spoiled

    Palm oil was initially introduced as a healthier option than partially hydrogenated oils in 1995. Its long shelf life, low price, and high melting point made it attractive to manufacturers, but the environmental cost is far too high. Palm Oil is a leading cause of Tropical deforestation and habitat destruction. No product is worth the actual price of using palm oil… it costs us the Earth.

    There are many viable alternatives to palm oil, including rapeseed oil, soy, sunflower, olive, or coconut oil, macadamia oil. We can do better.

    NO PALM OIL, EVER.
