In Your Palm

There are only 60,600 wild orangutans left. Will you stand with them?

We're collecting 60,600 names to send to 20 snack food companies using "Conflict Palm Oil" in their products, one for every known wild orangutan remaining. Tell the Snack Food 20 you don't want Conflict Palm Oil in your food!

Send your message: Tell the Snack Food 20 to cut Conflict Palm Oil, not rainforests!

    How did we end up here? I’m in awe of the ignorance performed by these companies. Imagine a world where your home would be stripped away and you have no say. These are THEIR HOMES. There are alternatives and why we don’t have the initiative to take advantage of those alternatives , I don’t know. Whether it may be an issue of money or just plain laziness I am still hinged to the fact that it is WRONG. Change takes TIME. Anybody knows that and with that it mind they should take it as a change worth the time. How would they like to be remembered as part of he reason that these animals go extinct? I bet when you start to talk about their reputation it becomes important to them. I won’t be buying products with palm oil in them and I’ll be sure to make everyone I know possible aware of the impact that it has on these helpless animals and the environment. Thank you to whoever made this video and bringing this issue to my attention, Godbless.

    we are destroying our only home, if we continue on this way, it’s already game over
  • commented 2016-10-10 07:37:55 -0700
    Big international companies should make a lot of effort to produce palm oil-free products and if everyone contributes to buy palm oil-free products, we can save these wild animals and local populations.

    Show some ethics and eraicate palm oil from your products and supply chain.
  • commented 2016-09-09 15:34:11 -0700
    I just found out about this. I’m going to make a concerted effort to not purchase items with palm oil in them.
  • commented 2016-09-08 14:48:37 -0700
    There are alternatives to palm oil, make the change.
  • commented 2016-09-03 04:55:00 -0700
    Don’t let your company be remembered for such a disaster. Stop now and show how responsible and ethical you can be.

    I’m dusgusted. I really don’t know what to write, so just let me tell you that i’m ashamed of humanity. Too many oft us became heartless and cruel and too many oft us don’t even know about all this. So please don’t hesitate being the small part that thinks different and isn’t ashamed to stand up for what you belive in and do your best to make this world a better one. Every step is a step.

    This is an abomination and we need change now! I’ve been reading labels since I became vegetarian 20 years ago and it is a very wise habit to get into. Palm oil can be avoided if we are aware and look for alternatives. Boycott companies who use this and demand that they stop. I’ve created my page https://awarenesshelps.wordpress.com/palm-oil/ to help spread the word.

    This is awful, let the orangutans live!
  • commented 2016-06-27 01:38:04 -0700
    People need to be more aware of what is happening all over the world., not just in their own neighborhood. Something so simple as boycotting products with palm oil can make a big impact in the pockets of these corporations, as well as the rain forest.

    I am from india, in our country we are using different edible oils like groundnut, coconut, sesame oil etc. but others countries are dumping palm oil and the result, even though our farmers grow groundnut, coconut, sesame , they are too costly compared to imported palm ( palm oil is too cheap) , and the worst part is in govt public distribution system ( govt sells rice, oil etc), govt sells only palm oil.( india doesn’t have much palm trees) it affects native farmers too, but the worst part is poor people who depend on govt pds for food only buys palm oil bcoz no other choice, so mass no of people will use palm oil only. its difficult to understand the game of mnc s , so if orangutans have to be saved , first we have to stop using palm oil and prevent import and export of palm oil.

    I think if everyone was informed about what products where destroying our planet most people would want them banned. But again, profit is the God of capital.

    We borrow the earth from our grandchildren. Palm oil companies are killing orangutans, creating smokes, increasing deforestation, in sum, destroying the earth. Please do not destroy the earth, the place where we live in, for profit that only few can savor.

    Dear Snack Companies,

    Our first grade class doesn’t want any palm oil in our food. We live in Singapore and when you give us palm oil, it is destroying the orangutans’ habitat, and the haze from clearing the rainforests in Indonesia comes over to Singapore as well. It creates lots of pollution for us and other countries as well. We love Oreos (and other foods too), but we are going to ask our parents to stop buying them, until you can make them without palm oil.

    Sincerely,
    Concerned First Graders
