Stop using palm oil in your products

The Body Shop advertises products that are cruelty free, "beauty with heart",  with no animal testing. Yet, many of their products utilize palm oil.
Palm oil plantations are the biggest threat to the decimation of the rainforests.
Rainforests provide critical habitat to species including highly endangered Sumatran tigers, Sumatran elephants and orangutans. At the current rate of deforestation from palm plantations, orangutans will be extinct within 10-20 years.
The palm oil industry also threatens the people of Indonesia. A single palm plantation can destroy the forests, watersheds, and forest resources of thousands of Indonesians, leaving entire forest communities in poverty.
Please be responsible and cruelty free to ALL the animals, eliminate palm oil from your products!

 

To:
The Body Shop, L'Oreal
Please be the responsible company we believe you can be and stop using palm oil in your products.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I can't stand the cruel, inhumane way they treat the orangutans when they 'get in their way'. Its disgusting.
