Hello Tree Friend!
We will run the first “Trees For Peace Petition” in the coming month. One of the most depressing sights in Southeast Asia are the palm oil plantations. Rain forest is cut down and the animals who lived there are kicked out/killed.
The reason: we want to have “trans-fat-free cookies”.
In 2000, it started to grow really hard, and now almost 10 million hectares (100 billion square meters) of rain forest has been converted to palm oil plantation in Indonesia alone:
Palm oil plantation area in Indonesia.
This is killing the eco-systems of South East Asia in many ways: lots of species die out (biodiversity loss) due to monoculture, water cycle is disrupted and the soil is getting depleted. Not to speak of the pesticide poisons used.
Let’s help to reduce our contribution to this stupidity by petitioning the cookie makers (and other food production companies) to stop using this product, or switch to ecologically grown oils.
Stop the Palm Oil Tragedy - Make better cookies!Read the Petition
