Take Note: WHO is BEHIND the PALM OIL Industry? Palm Oil

Problem with Palm Oil Factsheet POil: a globally traded agricultural commodity used in 50% of all consumer goods, from lipstick & packaged food to body lotion & biofuels. Used in ab. 50% of the products on supermarket shelves, POil imports to the U.S. have jumped 485% in the last decade, pushing POil cultivation into the Rainforests & making this crop a key cause of Rainforest Destruction around the globe. 85% of POil: grown in Indonesia, Malaysia & PapuaNewGuinea on industrial plantations severely impacting on: Environment, ForestPeoples & Climate.

POil destroys Rainforests: Indonesia’s Rainforests are among the world’s most diverse: provide critical Habitat to Highly Endangered Species: SumatranTigers, Elephants & Orangutans. Indonesia plans to convert approx.18million more Hectares of Rainforests (the size of Missouri) into POil plantations by 2020.

POil threatens Forest Peoples: Tens of millions of Indonesians rely directly on Rainforests for their livelihoods. A single POil plantation destroys the Forests, Watersheds & Forest resources of thousands of Indonesians, leaving entire Forest Communities to face poverty.

POil causes Climate Change: Rainforests: the Earth’s largest sinks of carbon, safely storing the greenhouse gases causing ClimateChange. In Indonesia, Rainforests are razed to create Oil plantations, releasing massive quantities of CO2emissions into the atmosphere. Deforestation causes 80% of Indonesia’s CO2emissions, making it the world’s 3rd largest emitter of CO2.

Our Groceries are Wiping Out Orangutans and Enslaving Workers   Palm Oil producers in Indonesia & Malaysia rely on Forced & Child Labor, but poverty-stricken Asians aren’t their only victims. They also clear tropical Rainforests to to plant their Oil Palm trees, obliterating the homes of Endangered Species like Orangutans, Pygmy Elephants & Sumatran Tigers. Source: Sheila S.

A-Z List of Companies who use PALM OIL (2010)

http://www.withcompassion.com.au/azpalmoilcomplist.htm

What can you do?  http://www.saynotopalmoil.com/What_can_i_do.php

Please, always read Labels! Palm Oil is often disguised, hidden behind many different ingredient names you probably don’t recognize when you go to your pantry or bathroom to check. To make things even more confusing for you as a consumer, sometimes companies will only disclose ingredients like “vegetable oil,” & though that vegetable oil blend likely contains palm oil, it’s not always a labeling requirement.

2. Palm Oil fruit

How Palm Oil Ravages Rainforests, Endangers Wildlife and Destroys Communities Procter & Gamble & other household brands must recognize the true costs of irresponsible Palm Oil production. They need to ensure that their Palm Oil supply makes a genuine contribution to Indonesia’s development, rather than destroying the future for its people, its wildlife & the Global Climate on which we all depend”. In 2013, P&G purchased about 462,000 tons of Palm Oil from suppliers, less than 10% of which is certified as sustainable. In March, Greenpeace activists unfurl a giant banner in the middle of Orangutan habitat inside the concession owned by PT Multi Persada Gatramegah (PT MPG), a subsidiary of Musim Mas Co., a Palm Oil supplier to Procter & Gamble in Muara Teweh, North Barito, Central Kalimantan. Greenpeace is calling P&G to stop destroying Indonesian Rainforest & commit zero deforestation policy. Source: Art and Zoe O.

Palm oil is hidden in the ingredients list of some products under the name PEG-200 Hydrogenated Glyceryl Palmate, instead of two words in plain English, they use 4 in scientific language so we won't know what is in the product We have a right to know!

 

It seems to be labelled under that name in cosmetic & body products. A list of products using this PEG-200 name:PEG 200 Hydrogenated Glyceryl Palmate is found in...

5.  Nearly all home-brand/no-name pasties & confectionery contain P.Oil (Coles/Safeway donuts, muffins, cakes, chocolate, confectionery etc).

6.  If you are not sure if a product contains P.Oil, either type the product name into google with 'palm oil' & see the search results, or call the company & ask if they use P.Oil.

7.   Look out for products that contain alternative vegetable oils, such as 100% sunflower oil, corn oil or canola oil. But note: Soybean oil is associated with the destruction of Rainforest in Brazil.
Important: Just because a product says it is "Organic" or "Cruelty-Free" does not mean it doesn't contain P.Oil. In fact, most natural/organic products do contain P.Oil - because P.Oil is a very much a natural ingredient. It's the way it is produced that is far from natural,

which is something many Companies fail to realise.

7 Ways to detect & avoid PalmOil: If you live in Australia, NewZealand or UK, you understand how frustrating it is trying to avoid P.Oil when shopping, bec. there are no laws on the mandatory labelling of P.Oil. Companies usually don't label P.Oil on their products. How you can detect & avoid P.Oil when shopping:

1.  Common name P.Oil is hidden under is 'vegetable oil'. Asian products/products made in Asia that have 'vegetable oil' on the label: it is P.Oil.

2.  Most pre-packaged snack foods by well known, large Corporate (Nestle, Unilever etc) contain P.Oil.

3.  If a product's saturated fat content is over 40% of it's total fat content, it will have P.Oil in it.

4.  Ingredients with the word 'palm' are P.Oil or are derived from the OilPalm fruit.

Who is behind the palm oil industry

It's not new. I wish the people responsible for the deforestation could be flung out of the country. But the natives who suffer from the deforestaion could be helped to sue them, it could help, couldn't it?
