Nice of them to sign these after the damage has already been done isn't it? There is no such thing as sustainable palm oil and I for one won't purchase any product made from it or containing it.

Asia Pulp & Paper (APP), Indonesia's largest pulp and paper producer, signed a far-reaching agreement...
-I don't trust APP, not for a second!

Palm oil and deforestation.
While a number of companies moved toward less-damaging practices, vast swatches of forest and peatlands were nonetheless destroyed for new plantations...
80 percent of the rainforests in Malaysian Borneo have been heavily impacted by logging...
And, on it goes...depressing!

We are, INDEED, Ben....very deep SHITE!

Boycott palm and coconut oils in all forms! It might be too late for Borneo...or, given a huge public effort..maybe not.

Thanks Cal for providing the link to the article by Mr. Butler. Quite informative, but I will have to agree with Ben O. We are in deep Doo-do if that is the best we can do. Read and noted.

That's sort of closing the barn door after the horses have escaped I suppose. I for one am very careful about what I buy.

Boycott palm oil- please say NO to Nutella, "natural no-stir" peanut butter, instant ramen, most brands of margarine and microwave popcorn, cheap white chocolate, "yogurt" covered snacks, International Delight coffee creamer- please read labels!
