Are you wanting some sweet snacks, cookies or biscuits for your next Netflix binge? Then enjoy this without eating rainforest-destroying palm oil! If you are ever in doubt look for the prefixes: LAUR, STEAR, GYLC and PALM in the ingredients list on packaging – this is most likely palm oil. Another tip is to shop for locally produced biscuits and cookies or vegan versions (if you happen to be vegan).
Hi @RAN @GreenpeaceUK @EIA_news @sumofus I’m now a Palm Oil Detective. I’m buying #palmoilfree #cakes #biscuits as the big brands MDLZ @Nestle @KelloggCompany @danone destroy forests causing species extinction #Boycott4WildlifeTweet
Did you know that palm oil is one of the world’s most destructive crops, as it can only be harvested in tropical rainforest and peatland landscapes where the highest concentration of endangered species live? The majority of palm oil and soy is fed to farm animals that people eat. This is why palm oil is an animal rights issue. And it is for these reasons that palm oil is NOT considered vegan by animal activists. It may be a plant-based substance, but it is NOT VEGAN. Mass-produced biscuits and cookies by brands like Hersheys, Mondelez, Nestle and Danone like to claim that their biscuits are plant-based AKA vegan. However, if they are still using palm oil, they are simply greenwashing extinction and ecocide!
