All companies that use palm oil: Stop using it in your products

The palm oil trade is the biggest threat facing orangutans today. Rainforests are being cleared at the rate of 300 football fields per hour to make way for oil palm plantations. Estimates show that if something is not done soon to stop the spread of these plantations, orangutans will be extinct within 10-20 years. It is also not only orangutans that are suffering due to the palm oil industry. Species such as tigers, rhinos and elephants are also in danger.

We urge everyone to educate themselves when it comes to what products contain palm oil and what different names palm oil can be listed as (for more information, see http://www.saynotopalmoil.com/palm-oil.php). But more importantly, we want to urge all companies that use palm oil in their products to reconsider their actions and to pledge to go palm oil free.
We want these companies to know that as consumers we would rather purchase products that do not use palm oil and we believe that an alternative ingredient must exist. If we get enough signatures and support we will send this petition to some of these companies... So please sign and share!

      PLEASE NOTE: I now have a letter up to send to companies. Unfortunately, most of the companies I would like to send this to do not have access to an email address on their website so I cannot set it up so that the letter is automatically emailed to them when somebody signs the petition. However, all these companies do have online contact forms you can personally fill out yourselves on their website. So I urge you to do this. Feel free to either copy and paste the set letter, change it around or write your own. Some of the major companies that use palm oil are as follows:

      Arnotts - http://www.arnotts.com.au/feedback.aspx
      Colgate - http://www.colgate.com.au/app/Colgate/AU/Corp/ContactUs/ConsumerAffairs.cvsp

      Animals are just as important, if not more important than humans.

      Because we humans are NOT the centre of the universe and must stop consuming all and destroying all in our path in a frenzy of greed. This.must.stop. Enough!

      Orangutans are wonderful and endangered. Why use palm oil? Totally unnecessary

      We've got to try and save these rain forrests and the animals that call it home - otherwise they'll end up extinct.

      Surely we can use products other than palm oil??
