Expansion of palm oil plantations into Indonesia’s and Malaysia's rainforests is causing massive climate disruption and pushing wild orangutans to the brink of extinction. With the FDA tightening controls around trans-fats, many companies may be tempted to increase their use of Conflict Palm Oil to comply with new regulations. That's the wrong approach - and companies need to know you're watching.
Take action now to call on the Snack Food 20—companies that control some of the best-known snack food brands in the world—to remove Conflict Palm Oil tied to rainforest destruction and orangutan extinction from their products, not increase their use to avoid trans fats. These companies rely on our trust as consumers. If enough of us speak up, the Snack Food 20 will have to change the way they do business.
Only 60,600 orangutans remain in the wilds of Sumatra and Borneo. That's why we’re organizing 60,600 humans to stand up for them by calling on PepsiCo and the other Snack Food 20 companies to cut Conflict Palm Oil, not rainforests. Will you stand for the orangutans and the climate today?
