SAY NO TO PALM OIL! 




Due to the massive international demand for palm oil, palm oil plantations are rapidly replacing the rainforest habitat of the critically endangered orangutan; with over 90% of their habitat already destroyed in the last 20 years.

It is estimated that 6 to 12 of these 'jungle people' are killed each day for palm oil.
