Stop Deforestation in Indonesia & Malaysia - Ask Whole Foods to ban Palm Oil
This petition had 3,485 supporters
Palm oil is used in most packaged foods today. The production of palm oil, primarily in Indonesia and Malaysia causes massive deforestation and destruction of the habitat of elephants, tigers and orangutans. The burning of forests in order to plant palm oil farms releases enormous amounts of carbon into the atmosphere, which increases climate change and global warming. Often orangutans are burned alive in trees.
Whole Foods sets a precedent for healthy food and eating habits. We ask that they set another precedent by demanding that their suppliers switch to other, more sustainable oils for their products. We understand that there may be a slight increase in a product's cost, and as consumers, we are fine with that. The climate and the health of all species is far more important.
