Palm Oil as many of you may not know is used for more than 50% of goods sold in our supermarkets - from chocolates to lipsticks, conditioning agent in shampoos, instant noodles, crisps and many more.

Nicely demonstrated by Coconut TV below is a cheat sheet on Southeast Asia's Palm Oil Crisis

Coconuts TV's documentary SUMATRA BURNING looks into the sumatra palm oil crisis and where the camera team travelled to Palembang, Indonesia to investigate rainforest clearance fires for palm oil plantations that cause environmental, economic, political, and health problems throughout Southeast Asia


Have your say on this topic? What do you feel about Palm Oil and what steps can you take to make a difference ?
