PLEASE BOYCOTT PALM OIL! Not only Nutella, but Jif has a chocolate hazelnut spread, and also beware of microwave popcorn, certain coffee creamers and margarines, cheap white chocolate and novelty chocolate, even some nutrition bars like Clif and Luna- read labels!

Noted and signed - disastrous for our earth - can these low life pieces of rubbish not see the bigger picture here - but the majority of humans on this earth just don't give a damn who they kill, who they trample on, to make that buck, even at the expense of our precious defenceless animals.

Thanks for calling on the US snack industry to help protect rainforests and orangutans.

Thanks for signing the petition. We'll be in touch soon with more ways you can take action to call on the US snack industry to protect Indonesia's rainforests and the people and wildlife, like endangered Sumatran orangutans, who depend on them.

Noted and signed. Nutella is flying off the shelves here. The first thing I think about, thanks to the care2 group Orangutans: Men of the Forest, is palm oil as major ingredient. Hopefully, they'll have made so much money that they'll look for another source for that oil component. (But then, I'd want to think that way about WalMart, which doesn't improve its employment practices or customer policy) because of their wealth.

I only product I use from these lists is Dr Bronner's liquid castille soap..and I use it for many things. I just checked the ingredients on my bottle (peppermint) and palm oil is not listed (nor any of the other names for it). Listed are organic coconut and hemp oils.
