It’s International Orangutan Day! 🥳
Over 3.5 MILLION HECTARES of forest have been destroyed in Indonesia and Malaysia over the past 20 years so that Palm Oil can be harvested 😰
Orangutans have lost almost 80% of their habitat, their home.
Palm Oil is an ingredient used in so many of products we buy; some use certified and traceable sustainable palm oil, and most use unsustainable 😒
Palm Oil can be disguised as Vegetable Oil and other names in products you buy;
Vegetable Oil, Vegetable Fat, Palm Kernel, Palm Kernel Oil, Palm Fruit Oil, Palmate, Palmitate, Palmolein, Glyceryl, Stearate, Stearic Acid, Elaeis Guineensis, Palmitic Acid, Palm Stearine, Palmitoyl Oxostearamide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Kernelate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Sodium Lauryl Lactylate/Sulphate, Hyrated Palm Glycerides, Etyl Palmitate, Octyl Palmitate, Palmityl Alcohol
HOW YOU CAN HELP! 🙌🏽
Look into the main products you buy to see whether they contain Palm Oil and switch to an alternative if they do ✔️
for some tips and palm oil free products
and adopt an Orangutan! This helps with rescue of Orangutans, secure forest that can’t be farmed or logged, supports the rescue and rehabilitation sanctuary + much more.
