We are killing the planet for palm oil…
Palm oil has been widely used in shampoo, soap, detergent, cooking oil, biscuit, chocolate & etc. The oil can be found in approximately 40-50% of household products.
Being the largest palm oil exporter Indonesia, due to increasing global demand of palm oil in the recent years has been using slash & burn method with the rate of clearing 300 football pitches* of rainforest an hour for oil palm plantation leading to thick smog & #haze.
Slash & burn is the cheapest and quickest method of clearance for cultivation and the ash from fires is also a natural fertilizer.
Let’s do our part, #saynotopalmoil - Let’s start with ourselves. #stopthehaze #weneedcleanair
