Here's an issue close to our hearts: Palm Oil 🙅♀️😡 It's the orangutan-habitat-destroying ingredient that can go by over 200 alternate names, hiding in nearly everything you buy: soap, ice cream, shampoo, bread, chips & tortillas (not ours!!) & more.
Look for 'palm oil' on an ingredient list and you're unlikely to find it. It's disguised under other names. But there are some tips to knowing if it's there:
(1) Look for palm oil free certification logos (like we have on all our products 🤔...or at least will have when our updated packaging is ready!)
(2) Scan the product with apps like The Ethical Consumer Guide and Palm Oil Investigation app. (3) Look out for "vegetable oil". In Australia, only 3 vegetable oils must be labelled in food products: peanut oil, sesame oil & soy bean oil. All other oils, including palm oil, can just be listed as the generic "vegetable oil".
Supporting the not-for-profit @orangutanalliance & having our products certified by them is important to us. However the only real potential for change is in the buying decisions that consumers make everyday. 🌎 "The greatest threat to our environment is the thought that someone else will save it." 🌏
