Here is a catchy cartoon about an orangutan and palm oil. Great article on palm oil.Palm oil is found "in half of all consumer goods including soaps and toothpaste, cosmetics and laundry detergent and a whole array of processed food". "alternative names including sodium lauryl sulphate, stearic acid and palmitate". We should ask companies what the source of their palm oil is. Do they verify that their supply chains and palm oil sources are responsible? Some companies continue to cut down the rainforest to plant palm oil. This practice is expanding from Malaysia, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea to Liberia and Uganda. Orangutans and tigers are killed. Forests and peatlands are burned. Climate change is accelerated, as forests and peatlands store lots of carbon.
