Why Palm Oil Is So Bad For The Environment

Why Palm Oil Is So Bad For The Environment

Palm oil and/or it’s derivatives are found in approximately half of the packaged products sold worldwide. Some of these food products include bread, margarine, ice cream, biscuits, crackers, various chocolate products, instant noodles, cereals, doughnuts and potato chips.
Palm oil is also found in many packaged vegetarian/vegan food products so be aware of that.

This is just the beginning. Palm oil is also found in a huge number of personal care products (shampoo, conditioner, cleansers, moisturisers, exfoliators etc) and household cleaning products.
In fact it’s very hard to find products that are palm oil free.

You have to be a savvy label reader because there are over 200 names for palm oil and its derivatives that manufacturers put on labels. Most of these names you would never know are palm oil related unless you do your research.

In Indonesia and Malaysia, pristine rainforests/jungles are being destroyed to make way for palm oil plantations.
This is having a disastrous effect on the populations of orangutans, elephants, tigers and many other animal species due to habitat loss.
Indigenous communities are also being forcefully removed from their lands/homes by BigCorp.
Child labour and slavery are also rife in the palm oil industries of Indonesia and Malaysia.
Human right violations at their worst.

In a nutshell, when you buy products from EnviroBren you can be 100% sure that there will be absolutely NO palm oil or derivatives in any of our product ranges.
We do the research for you so you don’t have to read the labels. You can if you want to but you won’t see any scientific sounding palm oil names on any of our EnviroBren brands.

Best wishes.
