Yael Simons started this petition to Scott Morrison (Federal Member for Cook) and

Palm oil is putting the planet at risk.

When harvested unsustainably and unethically it costs the lives of thousands of orangutans each year, we don’t change now they will be gone. 

Extinct. Forever. 


It's time we start labeling products correctly, indicating the source of their palm oil harvested by this company. This will put pressure on Palm oil companies to produce sustainably. 

Companies are running away from the problem and stating that their product has vegetable oil despite it actually containing palm oil.

All that’s needed is to use and produce sustainable palm oil and label the products correctly. Is it really that hard? Is it so complicated to keep animals alive?


“If all the insects were to disappear from the earth, within 50 years all life on earth would end. If all human beings disappeared from the earth, within 50 years all forms of life would flourish” – Jonas Salk


Jonas Salk shows how we, humans, are affecting the world and presents us with the scary idea that us humans are the major problem in the world.  This doesn’t mean it's up to everyday individuals to be making change but that we need elected politicians leading to make a difference and initiate the change. 


It is crazy that whilst eating, just eating,  we are subconsciously causing animals to die. In this instance it is not like we are eating the animal, we are eating a plant that in the process of production has destroyed animals habitat and lives. This worsened by the fact that 50% of  food in a supermarket contains Palm oil. The oil makes products last longer but the harvesting process is destroying our rainforests, it's a price we can’t pay, we shouldn’t be destroying our world for Palm oil. Palm oil isn’t the problem, the problem is how it is getting harvested and produced. The destruction and harm towards the rainforests and habitats in countries such as Indonesia where the problem lies. 


So sign this petition so we can get this to change. 

Sign so supermarkets, grocery stores, chemists and companies start stocking products with sustainable palm oil. 

Sign so harvesters start producing sustainably.

Sign so orangutans live on.

Let's Make a difference and a change.
