CAMPAIGN: The Problem with Palm Oil

CONTENT: Press Release

Did you know that more than 50% of the products on your local grocery store shelf contain palm oil? With the demand for palm oil on the rise, vast tracks of rainforests are being clear cut, significantly adding to the growing global warming threat. In addition to depriving some of the world's most endangered species of key habitats, tropical deforestation is also pushing the indigenous people of the rainforest from their rightful lands. The situation is dire but with your help, we can change all of this.

You can be part of the conversation.

Join Seventh Generation, Rainforest Action Network and Whole Foods Market to learn more about what they’re doing and what you can do to end the destruction of vital ecosystems.
