Hi,

We are sisters, Asha and Jia (aged 13 and 11) and we care about the environment and the world we live in. 

Do you know that most products in your house contribute towards deforestation, from toothpaste to bread?

Before August 2018, we'd never heard of palm oil either. However, after watching a documentary about the impact of deforestation, we were extremely upset to discover that most products in our house contributed towards mass deforestation.

So, what is Palm Oil? It is an oil that derives from Palm Fruit and it could be completely sustainable. But to farm this mass-produced oil, rainforests are destroyed and rows of palm trees are eventually planted instead. This is extremely problematic for every species in rainforests but its especially harmful for Orangutans, which are already an endangered species.

Twenty five orangutans are killed every day due to palm oil and we must take action now. As well as wiping out rainforests and the wildlife that thrives within them, cheap and irresponsible palm oil companies are also killing people. Due to the toxic gases of burnt down trees, around 110 people die a year. An area the size of a football pitch is torn down in Indonesia’s rainforest every 25 seconds - this has to stop! 

We need Colgate-Palmolive to provide us with complete transparency about where their palm oil comes from and the impact it has. Only 68% of its palm oil, palm kernel oil and palm oil derivatives were RSPO certified. We need them to stop making empty promises and show us some of the changes that they've made.

Please sign our petition now to help protect rainforests and save the orangutans.

If we work together, we can make this change!
