The new(ish) hidden ingredient that has become the bain of my existence. #palmoil is creeping up in our store shelves fast and furiously. Here's why you must avoid any products that contain palm oil.
1) Up to 300 football fields of rain forest are destroyed HOURLY for palm oil plantation.
2)Orangutans are losing their lives and homes in this process.
3) Palm oil is ranked one of the top worst industries for child labor.
4) Extremely high in saturated fat.
5) The burning of these forests to make room for cultivation has made Indonesia the 3rd largest emitter of greenhouse gases.
6) Numerous animals face extinction due to conversion of forest.
There are so many more, but if this isn't enough of a reason to stop consuming palm oil, I don't know what to say.
