Protect Paradise: An Animation about Palm Oil
SHORT VIDEO CLIPS, 24 Feb 2014
Palm oil is an ingredient in thousands of products we use every day. But palm oil has a dirty secret: forest destruction. Every year, thousands of hectares of Indonesian rainforest and peatlands – some of the most biodiverse regions on the planet – are being destroyed to make way for new palm oil plantations. We don’t have to clear forests for palm oil – solutions exist and some companies are on track to supply clean, responsible palm oil. But we need to take urgent action.
We are calling on companies to guarantee their products are free from forest destruction. Clean, responsible palm oil is possible. Join the movement now, and help to Protect Paradise.
