Palm Oil is used in many of the foods and products we consume every day, including candy.  Selecting products made with Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO) helps protect animal habitats (where palm oil is found). The Cincinnati Zoo has created a handy shopping guide to help consumers make orangutan-friendly choices.
