Gemma Hughes started this petition to Companies who use palm oil

One of the biggest causes of climate change is deforestation. I believe saving orangutans and other animals is extremely important and every possible rainforest inhabitant should be saved.

The most common use of the land that was once a rainforest is growing palm trees for their oil. Many companies use palm oil in their products - especially chocolate. Palm oil is in high demand and is in more than half of supermarket products.

The main problem is that the rainforests produce over 80% of the world's oxygen. It also contains lots of carbon dioxide which damages the ozone layer. Another problem is that the method slash and burn doesn't just release the carbon dioxide in the trees, it also releases more CO² by burning the stumps of the felled trees.

If this petition succeeds in raising awareness of the matter, I believe companies that use palm oil and support deforestation and change their ways.

I believe we need to save the planet as all of the creatures (including humans) deserve to survive and no animal deserves to go extinct.
