Palm oil is used in many products such as food, detergents, and even sometimes car fuel. What people don’t know about it is that when this oil is produced it causes many humans and animals to die. What companies do is they go to poor areas with tropical climates and chop down, or burn big forests. When they do this they end up killing thousands of animals because they are taking away their habitat, or burning them to death. Also, the burning of the forests results in hazes and air pollution which causes 100,000 people in South Asia to die every year. A way to prevent this from happening is looking for the sustainable palm oil symbol on all of your food and products you buy. Sustainable palm oil is a way to produce the oil without all the negative effects. This way people don’t lose their jobs and people and animals don’t have to die. Trader Joe's does not only use sustainable palm oil. Therefore, they are taking part in this horrible activity. Please help convince them to only use sustainable palm oil. Together we can make a difference.
