Palm Oil is an edible vegetable oil derived from the fruit of the Oil Palm Tree. About 50 percent of supermarket products have palm oil in them- from soaps to potato chips, cosmetics to detergents.
Every hour, about 35 football fields of forest are cut down to make way for Palm Oil plantations. In result, endangered species such as Sumatran Tigers and Orangutans are losing their habitats.
In New Zealand producers can legally list Palm Oil as one of 200 different names on the packaging of their products, making it impossible to buy palm oil free products!
