Unilever stops using palm oil!


Unilever, who is a part of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil, has decided to stop including palm oil in their products. The plantation they bought palm oil from was actually destroying the rainforest and killing Orangutans. The plantation was a part of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil.

Unilever's decision put a permanent end on a 33 million dollar supply contract.


Products made by Unilever are safe to buy and safe to support. Some common ones are shown in this picture.

This means that orangutans were most likely killed to make those Girl Scout cookies.

Don't taste so good now, do they?

Two thumbs up for Unilever. Thanks for standing up for what's right.

If Unilever can do it, what's stopping the Girl Scouts?


Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil is the same association that the Girl Scouts are proud to be a part of. However, this association is just a name, and does not actually regulate how or where the palm oil is made. Don't let them fool you.
