. ✋ I S A Y N O T O P A L M O I L 🐵 . why ? . palm oil is an edible vegetable oil from the fruit of the west-african oil palm tree . the oil palm tree is grown in tropical regions (mostly in Indonesia and Malaysia, but now spreading all over the tropics, including Latin America and Africa) . the rain forests are being cut down to create space for palm oil plantations . an area the equivalent size of 300 football fields is cleared each hour !!! so tropical rainforests are vanishing at an alarming rate and it's expected it is irreversible . as the green lungs of Mother Earth, the forests are vital to our health and survival . land use change from forest to oil palm plantations does not only impact biodiversity and stored carbon but also has a surface warming effect, adding to climate change . palm oil is not only bad for the climate; innocent animals also suffering at the hands of the palm industry . as their forest habitat is cleared, endangered species such as the orangutan, borneo sumatran tiger, sumatran elephant, sumatran rhino , the malasyan sun bear and many more are being pushed closer to extinction . and the rights of workers in the palm oil supply chain are still being violated on a mass scale. these include child labor, forced labor and discrimination against women . palm oil is used in so many food products like margarine, frozen pizza's, baby food, crisps, soups, ice cream, chocolate, candies, sauces and cookies . it is also used in the production of things like animal food, soap, shampoo, cosmetics/makeup, candles and almost half of the palm oil imported into Europe is used as biodiesel . Wilmar NL is the largest importer/exporter of palm oil world wide 😡 . it’s a source of huge profits for multinational corporations .
