Tell the fast food industry in NZ to use sustainable palm oil

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

If we can persuade Mcdonalds, Dunkin Donuts, Burger King, Starbucks and other fast food places in New Zealand to use sustainable palm oil (in other words palm oil that is farmed in places that don't cut down the forest / cause deforestation) then we can save many endangered species like orangutans, polar bears and much more.

I am a 14-year-old girl who has been researching about the threats to polar bears. Through my research, I have found out that cutting down trees releases the stored carbon dioxide into the atmosphere which causes climate change. Climate change is making the ice melt, which is raising the sea level which means there is less land left for the polar bears (habitat destruction). This is making them unable to catch their favourite meal - the ringed seals. Polar bears are at the top of the food chain in the Arctic. That means if they become extinct the ringed seals will overgrow and cause lots of other problems we don't want.

If the fast food places in New Zealand use sustainable palm oil then we can reduce carbon dioxide in the air,  reduce ice melting, make water safer in places like Africa, help other endangered species and much more. On the other hand, if fast food places in New Zealand DON'T use sustainable palm oil then there will be more carbon dioxide in the air, water level rising, ice melting, which will kill lots of animals and much more.

The more signatures I get the better.

I hope you support and share the petition, Thank you!!
