Make Smart Shopping Choices

Animals like the Bornean and Sumatran orangutans are critically endangered species due in part to the palm oil industry.  Palm oil is used in many of the foods and products we consume every day from frozen vegetables to shampoo. Oil palm plantations are spreading across Indonesia, which produces 85% of the world’s supply of palm oil, often to the detriment of its rainforests and wildlife. As consumers, we can choose to buy products made with sustainable palm oil as certified by the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). Below is a helpful guide for purchasing candy made with certified sustainable palm oil.
