    I didn’t know that orangutans were directly affected by the palm oil industry, but I did know about the damages that palm oil harvesting does to the environment. I’m sad tough that this campaign uses orangutans as the reason to stop the palm oil industry because they’re only an incredibly tiny part of the problem. This affects literally all life form, even sea creatures of all things. The problem is not that palm oil harvesting in general is bad, but the way we do it IS, becasuse this industry is not sustainable. If we used less palm oil we would reach a point where it doesn’t affect the life of living creatures (including ourselves) and thus it wouldn’t be such a big deal. But right now, we’ve come to a point that palm oil is getting so overused that it may be considered as a fossil ingredient, just like petrol. The worst of course is not the fact that we might one day not have palm oil anymore, but rather that our living conditions won’t be great anymore. Because destroying the rainforest means shit weather, shit temperature, shit food, shit resouces, and in general a shit planet. You see, people often use animals to sensibilise environmental issues and if you’re a 13 year old animal lover girl, you’re gonna want to support environmental protection simply because “those poor cute animals don’t deserve this”! But if you’re a 18 year old 100% meat eater man like me, the tactic of using animals to promote environmental protection doesn’t work. Well guess what, as I said earlier, that would badly affect humans too. An apocalyptic film would have worked as well as this, if not more, because that’s literally what could happen. Rainforests means food and resources, and with 7.5 billions humans, we don’t even need to destroy the rainforest to get a worldwide food shortage! Not to mention more extreme weather (hotter summers and colder winters), extreme air pollution which has a devastating impact on life quality and the fact that we won’t have anything left to build our homes, cities and objects. In other words, it’s either no Nutella, or putting humans and other life forms at great risk of extinction. Choose wisely.

    Please stop destroying the rainforests.

    The human race has become so selfish, thinking it is on the top of the pyramid, but it has got to a point where it massively destroys for the most meaningless things. Animals, plants, insects and even parasites, viruses and bacterial have an important role on this planet, much more important than ours. Why are we so selfish? Why do we always want to destroy everything? We should preserve the life of the other species. We are not in the past anymore to not be able to realise the effect we have upon our lives by acting like this. This selfish destroying actions should be stopped. There is already an overproduction of… everything. Why should we have even more?

    The numbers of Orangutans are starting to decrease. They need their homes to thrive on. I want these small number of companies TO CUT BACK on Palm oil instead of cutting the numbers of Orangutans!!!
    Like are you kidding me?!?!?! Please ! Can you imagine how painful it is for an Orangutan to lose thier home?!?!?!!?!? Your going to slowly take their homes away!!!!!!! And I certainly don’t want Conflict Palm Oil in our food either please hear us all out!!!!! There are diffent alternatives to do things!!!💔💔💔💔💔

    It is not enough with just a signature and a comment. We need to get involved and informed; we need to do our research and stop buying any an all the products that affect the ecosystem. It is with our money that companies understand, sadly, not with our petitions. Let’s recover and heal our planet and start sharing it equally with all living organisms.

    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.

    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.

    I just found out about this. I’m going to make a concerted effort to not purchase items with palm oil in them.

    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.

    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.
