“It’s very encouraging to see a company like Dunkin’ acknowledge the seriousness of the problem and take important first steps to address their palm oil use,” said Laurel Sutherlin, communications manager at the Rainforest Action Network (RAN), to TakePart. “At the same time, the stakes are very high, the problem is very urgent.”
