Nabisco, save the Orang-outang, stop using palm oil in Oreo cookies

When Aylam Rosenthal, a 14 year old naturalist, conservationist and wildlife photographer had to learn a second language, it was an easy choice: Indonesian. You see, Aylam’s dream is to go to Indonesia to photograph the amazing wildlife that exists only there, in the rainforest.
But the rain-forest is disappearing, partially for a reason you may not expect: To make space for Palm oil crops for use, among others, in the american pastime, Oreo Cookies. By the time Aylam fulfills his dream, the Orang-outang, Sumatran tiger, rhinos and Asian Elephants that live only in those rain-forests may already be extinct. 

In Indonesia, 7,000 square miles of forest is destroyed each year for palm oil production. This is a rain-forest area the size of Atlanta deforested every single week! If companies like Nabisco continue to use palm oil in their products, the need for deforestation will grow even faster.

But we can take a stand! Together, we can make Nabisco use sustainable ingredients, ones that don't require  rainforest to be destroyed. There are many sustainable alternatives. Lets tell Nabisco that we want to enjoy Oreos without thinking about the damage it is causing.

This is a big task and a big company, so we need your signature, and we need you so share this petition with as many people as you can.

Lets make this happen. If Nabisco changes, others will follow.

Thanks, and see you in Indonesia, photographing some happy tigers.

      I love Oreos, but I haven't even touched one in the longest time because of their use of palm oil and I've told everyone I know about this scandal. Nabisco, please stop using palm oil so everyone will start being able to eat Oreos again!!

      We have GOT to start caring for our planet & its biodiversity -- or we will lose it. I don't want to live in a world without nature, healthy, burgeoning nature. Is it too late?

      Please try to find a more ethical way to get palm oil! I love Oreos but I want the rainforest to be safe.

      I want to continue to purchase your products, but the palm oil must be removed before I will again.

      Oreo's wonderful campaign of inclusion this year is at odds with this ingredient choice and the ecological mismanagement you are supporting
