Think there’s nothing you can do about deforestation and loss of wildlife? Think again
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 and contributes 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 #PalmOilAudit and follow our easy steps to find palm oil in your supermarket products and, if it’s unsustainable, to swap it to sustainable palm oil or go palm oil free.
Here you’ll find Top Tips for your #PalmOilAudit, more information about the impact of palm oil and examples of just how many places you’ll find it. You can join our new Facebook Group or sign up to our regular palm oil email where we’ll have lots of juicy 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!
At the end of your Palm Oil Audit you can be confident that your kitchen cupboards and bathroom cabinets will be orangutan friendly! Please also share your swaps to inspire others to do the same, help stop deforestation and protect the planet and it’s wildlife.
If we all swap 10 products to sustainable palm oil or palm oil free then together we’ll have a big impact.

Why do people worry about palm oil?
Unsustainable palm oil leads to deforestation, loss of habitat for endangered species including orangutans and climate change. Local communities lose out too.
