Governments are not doing enough to to push the companies in there land to join the (RSPO) that would lower rain forest and peatland destruction.

Nestle, Cadburys, Pringles, Hovis are all major producers of foods but only a handful of their products have sustainable palm oil in them. The other half are still coming from un-sustainable forest plantations that are killing the Orangutan and other natural habitat.

There are an estimated 500+ companies that have joined the Round Table and this is simply not enough. Some companies such as Tesco, Morrisons, Asda, Waitrose have joined "BUT" this is for their (own) brands and not the brands that they still have on there shelfs. So really what is the point as 90% of these products are still being supported by these big chain hypermarkets through media, and press advertising that brings more and more people to there stores that purchase more goods.

PRICE WARS is also a major issue here. With hypermarkets price fixing and going to war with each other, then this in turn brings more consumers in buying more of the cheap products that are (un-sustainable). Which sadly then means more non green plantaions are being made by cutting down vast areas of the natural forests and killing the wildlfe and Orangutans.
