Palm Oil

Palm Oil

If you are living in 2018, you already know that palm oil is awfully unsustainable. Many palm oil companies employ the slash and burn method. They cut down and burn rainforest, plant palm oil palms in its place. Lots of rainforest around the world has already been destroyed for palm plantations. Worse yet, there are even rumors of black market bounties from those companies on endangered wildlife such as orangutans. Kill and remove the endangered species, so that the governments will let you slash and burn. So what? You can easily avoid palm oil? Not exactly. Palm oil is in nearly every grocery store item. Look at the ingredient list of anything in your home (like food, cleaning supplies, etc.) and you probably will see a form of palm oil (look for anything with the word palm, such as palmitate).
