The Problem

Palm oil kills primates and other endangered mammals, and puts human populations at risk. Palm to Palm - our soon-to-be nonprofit - is committed to certifying educational institutions as “palm oil free” in order to protect humans and wildlife across the globe. Palm oil production is a leading source of deforestation, pollution, economic instability and exploitation of local human communities. Deforestation is the main driver leading toward species extinction of critically endangered orangutans and other rare and threatened species. Our objective is to halt further exploitation of the natural environments that threaten humans and wildlife.

Our Plan

We will do this by forming coalitions of university and college campuses to avoid palm oil in foods and other consumer products.
