The Problem with Palm Oil...

I keep getting into arguments with people over this one. From RAN.org: Palm oil plantations are expanding into the planet’s most biodiverse ecosystems, including rainforests, grasslands and peat swamps in South America, Southeast Asia, the Pacific and Africa. These regions are home to millions of plant and animal species, including highly endangered orangutans, clouded leopards, and sun bears. Here is the list of the "Dirty 20," the top 20 Offenders whose companies who are contributing to rainforest destruction and endangering the above, not to mention adding to greenhouse gasses and displacement. This is a tough list to avoid. Most greenies I know refuse to believe that Odwalla is on there. They are owned by Coca-Cola. Chanel is another. See the rest.
