3 steps and 3 minutes to make your first swap to sustainable palm oil or palm oil free
Unsustainable palm oil leads to deforestation, threatens orangutans with extinction, as well as contributing to climate change. Local communities miss out too.
You can do something today because palm oil is everywhere: if you clean, eat and wash the chances are you’ve used it in the last week. Do a Palm Oil Audit at home to check whether the palm oil in your kitchen cupboards and bathroom cabinets is sustainably sourced. If it’s isn’t, you can swap for products using sustainable palm oil or go palm oil free.
Here you’ll find top tips for your Palm Oil Audit, more information about the impact of palm oil and examples of just how many places you’ll find it. You can join our Facebook Group or sign up to our regular palm oil email where we’ll have lots of palm oil facts and guides to help you tackle the supermarket aisle by aisle. It’ll also be a place for people to share their successes!
Doing the Palm Oil Audit gives you confidence and knowledge to avoid unsustainable palm oil to help stop deforestation and protect the planet and it’s wildlife.
