Valentine Candy Alert

Did you buy chocolates today for someone you love? Take a quick second to scan the ingredients for palm oil and palm kernel oil. These controversial ingredients are no symbol of love. A majority of the world's palm oil comes from Indonesia and Malaysia, where thriving rainforests—home to ancient Indigenous communities, majestic creatures, and flora of every shape and size—are torn down by the palm industry and replaced with monoculture plantations, some of which use slave labor. While being a "slave to love" might sound appealing to some, no one wants slave labor in their Valentine candy…or rainforest destruction or species extinction for that matter. Alert Valentine chocolatiers to the problems with palm oil.
