Source Palm Oil Responsibly to Save the Orangutans

Problem
The forests with the largest Palm Oil exports are in Indonesia and Malaysia. These forests are also home to the endangered Orangutans. There are only 50,000 - 65,000 Orangutans left in the wild with 2,000-3,000 Orangutans being KILLED each year. Only 6,000 Sumatran Orangutans are left in the wild. Within the next 10 years, the orangutans will become EXTINCT. It is our job to help these creatures and their home that humankind has been killing off in the demand for cheap Palm Oil. We need to educate companies to source Palm Oil responsibly and fight for the end of deforestation.

Solution

Share this, educate yourselves, and have empathy for these animals that cannot fight for their right to survive peacefully in the wild. We need to educate corporations to harvest their oil from sustainable resources–the problem isn’t the oil itself, it is how it's harvested.

Palm Oil has found a way into our daily lives: Food, Skincare, Toothpaste, Soaps, Hair Care, Cleaning Products etc. Please read labels, find companies that use sustainable or no Palm Oil and have a no-deforestation policy. Do not support companies that contribute to deforestation. The Palm Oil that isn't sustainable is what is destroying habitats of hundreds of species and slaughtering some of the most endangered great apes in the world! 

This is how we can make a change in our everyday life so that the forests and the biodiversity within can survive. Educate companies, save the forests, and save the Orangutans!
