Hannah Nelson started this petition to Food Standards Australia and New Zealand

Palm oil is a terrible ingredient found in everything from shampoo to chocolate. As the name suggests, it is made from the fruit found on palm trees, but that isn't the problem. To make room for palm oil plantations, thousands of acres of tropical rain forest is destroyed every day. 

Never the less, companies are continuing to put this ingredient in their products, and they are hiding it with seemingly innocent names such as vegetable oil and Glyceryl. When I first learnt about this, I was shocked that it could go unnoticed and the Australian government was allowing this to keep going. That is why I decided to create this petition: To call for the Australian government to make it mandatory for palm oil to be listed on the ingredients list on all products that contain it. Not only would this make it easier for consumers to identify which products contain palm oil, but it would also put pressure on companies to stop using palm oil all together. 

Please sign this petition to stop this horrible destruction of our precious rain forests and to support my journey of environmental activism.

Thanks Again,

Hannah
