Palm Fat continues to dominate the social and eco headlines, and we decided not to use this ingredient within any of our products, There are several ethical issues regarding palm oil production’s effects on the environment, wildlife and communities.
In the past decades, increasing demand has led to an unprecedented expansion of palm oil production in Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand, These countries have humid, tropical climates that are ideally suited for growing oil palm trees. However, in order to accommodate oil palm plantations, tropical forests and peatland are being destroyed. A recent analysis found that 45% of land in Southeast Asia currently used for palm oil production had been forest back in 1990, including more than half of all palm oil plantations in Indonesia and Malaysia Deforestation is anticipated to have devastating effects on global warming, as the forests play a crucial role in reducing greenhouse gasses by absorbing carbon from the atmosphere, In addition, the destruction of native landscapes causes changes in the ecosystem that threaten the health and diversity of wildlife. Especially concerning is the impact on endangered species such as Bornean orangutans, which are facing extinction due to habitat loss. There have also been reports of human rights violations by palm oil corporations, such as clearing farmlands and forests without permission, paying low wages, providing unsafe working conditions and significantly reducing the quality of life.
We are looking to partner with the Orangutan Foundation https://www.orangutan.org.uk
