Eating the meat of rare species animal has become a "status symbol" and "rich catagory citizen" in Assam, India. The conversations are like this: "have you ever tasted deer/tortoise/leopard...'s meat? I did, and the cost is Rs.900/- per kg....". It is indeed very difficult to create awareness amongst these catagory of highly educated citizen

We must all change our eating habits. No processed foods ! We are , as a species , just living on credit. Future eating cultures abound, most poor people don't have a choice but richer countries can act, can't they? will they? I wonder.? Most people at apathetic and don't see further than the nose on their face. Sad , we have so much potential.

I agree
with all of you! Animals are one of God's greatest gifts to us and about the most abused. They only kill to eat, fight only to defend themselves and their families and live in harmony with the environment.. They dont destroy it! I admire the beauty of all living creatures and it's my passion to fight for all of them against the evil selfishness of humans who seek to destroy environments that aren't even theirs!

Boycott? I would gladly house an orangutang. But how can I justify boycoytting a list of companies this long when I cannot afford to buy a meal consisting of more than cornmeal qnd a frew cans of Luck's Beans (listed on boycott list)? And I live in America, am college educated, and i love and have compassion for animals. I just have a little more for my children and spouse.

There are lots and lots of truly inexpensive foods on the market that do not use PALM OIL in their production. Just take the time to check labels! Give it a try!

Anne Grice

All snack food industries must be understand that they need to take the humane and corporate responsibility to stop using palm oil in their products. There are much healthier alternatives such as coconut oils which can be easily sourced from areas where no wildlife will suffer. Please investigate the health benefits of coconut oils for food production. Destruction of palm oil plants is cruel, inhumane as these precious orangutans are suffering immensely.

IF THE FAST FOOD COMPANY'S WANT THIS PALM OIL SO BAD.... WHY DON'T WE SUGGEST TO THEM... TO FUND, PALM OIL FARMING... ON AGRICULTURAL LAND....??? TAKING THEM AWAY FROM THE RAIN FORESTS.... AND AT THE SAME TIME... CREATING EMPLOYMENT FOR THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE... AT SMALL COST TO THE FAST FOOD COMPANY'S....AND TAKING AWAY ALL THE BAD PRESS.... AND ANGER OF THE PEOPLE... AND PUTTING A BIG SMILE ON THE FACES OF MANY ORANGUTANS.... WITH A BIG THUMB'S UP TO THE FAST FOOD COMPANY'S....

Well, haven't we all tried that already???? Hasn't happened as far as I know.....meanwhile, boycott foods that contain PALM OIL and write to the CEOs of those products' companies.

One of the biggest uses of palm oil, is soap. Hence the brand Palmolive. This is a good place to start your boycott.

Boycotting is not the answer. Educate the native people not to destroy the trees for palm oil, and find out the alternatives. Provide them with financial resources to find a way to sustain their living.

FARMING PALM OIL... WOULD CREATE AN ALTERNATIVE INCOME FOR THE NATIVE PEOPLE... AND GET THE FAST FOOD COMPANY'S TO FUND THIS... AND MAYBE THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT. CREATE EMPLOYMENT. FOR THE NATIVE PEOPLE. PRODUCING THE PALM OIL, EVERYONE IS HAPPY. AND NO NEED TO DESTROY THE HABITATS....YOU HAVE A PRODUCT...??? AND A MARKET.... SO BUILD A BUSINESS.... AND FEED THE PEOPLE.....

Hi Matt, we are asking snack food companies to reduce their consumption of palm oil, to use alternatives where possible and to make sure that any palm oil they use has not resulted in forest destruction or social conflict in Indonesia and Borneo Malaysia. In regards to alternative oils they can use oils that are not grown in the tropics and have been produced responsibly including olive oil, canola oil, corn oil and safflower oil. The American Heart Association also recommends eating these...

Hi Matt, we are asking snack food companies to reduce their consumption of palm oil, to use alternatives where possible and to make sure that any palm oil they use has not resulted in forest destruction or social conflict in Indonesia and Borneo Malaysia. In regards to alternative oils they can use oils that are not grown in the tropics and have been produced responsibly including olive oil, canola oil, corn oil and safflower oil. The American Heart Association also recommends eating these monounsaturated oils and polyunsaturated fats instead of processed palm oil. Another option in the tropics is coconut oil.
