Please people, read your labels and learn all the hidden words that mean palm oil. This is so disgraceful and awful. These poor orangutans, elephants, and others need to be protected from this greedy carelessness for their lives.
Elaine, Beverly, I did contact a number of companies that made digestive cookies (which I love) and SOME of the companies belong to a society promoting sustainable palm oil. The British companies seemed quite aware. We need to support these suppliers- and boycott the rest.
@PaulCastmaster: What have elephants got to do with orangutans and palm oil production?
Paul Castmaster. there are surely other means. needs to be thought of. when there are too many people in a town, do we kill some of them ???
flaco matate que tiene que ver eso con que quemen vivos a los orangutanes, sos un ignorante si es por eso matemosnos todos.
ANIMALS WERE HERE BEFORE HUMANS. WE ARE ENCROACHING IN THEIR TERRITORY. AND LIVING IN THEIR ENVIRONMENT.
How do we know which companies to boycott?
I say, the human race already owns too much space in this world. We are not the only animal and therefore cannot declare this planet as our own. Do you know, how many elephants die of humans? and the very little number of unlucky humans that starve, because 'a herd of elephants come and trample down his fences and ......'????
I have adopted 2 stop this inhuman act now!!!
this cruelty needs to be stopped
Needs to be stopped
hi wilma it hurts so much to see all the animal cruelty it makes me so sad and angry greetings chantal baas.
Indeed it does! HOWEVER, the cruelty is the result of palm oil being a 'supply and demand' item... so PLEASE be aware of your own participation in the cruelty... for example, do you buy SOAP? ICE CREAM? Does it contain palm oil? Do your friends purchase these items? That is what drives the production of palm oil, and hence, the unbearable suffering and cruelty inflicted upon the orangutans.
Carol Boyungs This is horrible ! What ever happen to taking care of gods creatures ? Is this why Noah's ark was loaded up with animals ?
PLEASE STOP THIS.
Will sign. This site is incredibly informative as Palm Oil and its derivatives are in so many of our Australian grocery options:
God help US if we cannot help them !!!!!!
How about, everyone that wants to really make a difference - go vegetarian. It is the biggest difference one person can make.
Amen to that. :)
Hi Melinda, please don't take this the wrong way. Being a vegetarian isn't the answer. I just resigned from a large corporation in Western Australia that import Palm Oil from overseas. Which they use as the main ingredient in a liquid fertiliser. Which our farmers buy and put on their crops. Vegetalbes that is... pretty shit hey!
This must be stopped. We call ourselves Human, but we act like the devil himself :(
I know I have some sensitive friends - WWF estimates that 50% of all packaged supermarket products contain palm oil, and demand is now growing for its use as a ‘green’ biofuel.
biofuel of any kind is plan evil, unless its uses garbage or fumes from the dump it's not eco friendly. Even my vegan friends eat nutella, margarine, microwave popcorn and think 'vegetable' oil is better than butter, ahhhhh makes me crazy.
pourquoi toute cette cruauté sur des êtres innocents? svp arrêtez tout cela!
Non, ils n'arrêteront jamais ! C'est trop facile... Pourquoi ces monstres se priveraient-ils ?
désolée mais je n'arrive pas à signer les pétitions quelqu'un peut-il m'aider ?
When the last animal is dead and gone, our last tree scrams in defeat, the human race will cease to exist. Heed my words, for it is each of those who have signed this, that will be left to rebuild and repair what mankind has done.TW.
the only problem is, we'll go down with them all
Cynthia Moon haven't we earned and deserved it? whereas they have not?
Absolutely! We as a species have indeed earned and deserve to go down, go extinct, and go under! Humans are the only one at all on Earth who do deserve that, and it will happen. Then what's left of the world will be a much better place.
Cynthia Moon And the more I see, the more I think that is how it should be, sad. The only salvation I see are the great activists here on Facebook.
Tory Welsh. I don't think human could, alone, rebuild world.
BASTA YA DE ABUSAR DE LOS MAS DÉBILES, NUESTRA OBLIGACIÓN COMO SERES PENSANTES ES DE CUIDAR DE TODO NUESTRO ENTORNO. QUE HERENCIA LES ESTAMOS DEJANDO A NUESTROS HIJOS? UN MUNDO SECO Y CONTAMINADO = MUERTE ES LO QUE LES ESPERA. BASTA YA!
la humanidad se viene loca!y dolares no se podran comer!
possible that nobody does anything about them?
if this palm oil is bad for them,
must find a way to prevent this killing....I hope serve in some.
visti poveri ? nn c'è mai una bella notizia :(
