Say NO to palm oil
I wonder how many people know about palm oil and the catastrophic impact vast clearing of sensitive rainforest habitat goes on to grow it. Not only that the animals suffer too. In Sumatra and Borneo thousands of hectares of pristine rain forest has been systematically destroyed to make way for palm oil plantations leaving nowhere for the animals to go. Sumatran tigers, orangutans, elephants, asian rhino just to name a few are all endangered animals living in a shrinking habitat. Palm oil is a cheap ingredient in many of our household cleaners soaps and foods. In fact it's used in everything from biscuits to shampoo and it seems the global appetite for it is insatiable.
