I believe that Palm Oil is one of the worst environmental threats ever! 20 square miles of pristine untouched rainforest is chopped and burned every day! WWF says that an area the size of 300 football felids is cleared each hour for Palm Oil! In 2007 the Guinness World Records said that Indonesia has the worst deforestation record ever. As well as the deforestation this causes air pollution and world wide problems in the future. Indonesia is the third biggest polluter after China and the USA. By 2020 98% of Indonesia's lowland forests will be gone. It doesn't just effect Indonesia. It also affects the Americas, India, Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Thailand and Western Africa.
Palm Oil affects over 300,000 animals. It threathens some of the world's most endangered animals like the Sulu Hornbill (only 20 pairs left), Javan Rhino (only 50 left), Bay Cat (only 50 left), Sumatran Tiger (thought to become extinct in the wild in less than 3 years) and of course the Sumatran Orangutan (thought to become extinct in the wild 5-10 years. 50 Orangutans die a week because of Palm Oil and this is their greatest threat.
So what can you do? You can have a Palm Oil free diet and stop buying products that contain palm oil. But this is very difficult because it has over 200 names and some times they don't even label it. This is where the the best app in the world comes in. It is the Palm Oil Investigations App. All you have to do is scan the bar code of the product and it will tell you if it has Palm Oil or not. You can download it from here https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.VS.BazingaLabs.POI&hl=en and here https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/poi-palm-oil-barcode-scanner/id930164030?ls=1&mt=
