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!!!
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 :(
Take responsibility and check labels - don't buy anything that contains palm oil whether it says sustainable or not. If everyone who cares writes one letter to a manufacturer saying that they love their product but will not buy it if they continue to use palm oil then you will make a difference. Indonesia is poor and has a big population - they will continue to clear fell forest and plan palm oil as long as we keep buying it.
Signée et partagée.
mais comment peut on faire des actes d'une telle barbarie, Dieu que nous sommes sauvages nous dépassons et de loin l'animal qui lui tue que pour manger et non pour le plaisir.
signè la cruautè na pas de limite eux ils nous vont confiance et nousles humain on les dètruit.
One problem is that the consumers who buy products containing palm oil are wholly unaware of the consequences of their actions. I have contacted several bakers, and there is a team (ie. McVities) who belong to an association to promote sustainable palm oil. We need to get the world out, so that consumers are aware where to purchase products that use SUSTAINABLE palm oil.
This Orangutans are just trying to survive!! What the heck is wrong with this world!!!
Feel outraged that these people could burn an animal that is in his own environment. God what's going on?
When I saw the picture, I just wanted to do the same to those who did it, to this Beautiful Being/Spirit. There is no excuse for this!
PLEASE don't purchase items that promote these palm oil plantations... SOAP, ICE CREAM, for example!! With no DEMAND (consumers/consumption), there would be no SUPPLY (palm oil plantations)... putting an end to the barbaric cruelty inflicted upon the innocent orangutans.
