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!
