True Cost of Palm Oil

Palm Oil is in Almost Everything - But What's the True Cost?

Did you know growing it unsustainably contributes to deforestation and biodiversity loss in equatorial rainforests?

One of the biggest threats to orangutans and other great apes is the loss of their natural habitat, pushing their species to the brink of extinction. At the core of this habitat loss is unsustainable palm oil.  It’s the most popular vegetable oil used in products around the world. Growing it unsustainably contributes to deforestation and population loss in equatorial rainforests.
