palm oil 2

I thought I will put an update on palm oil issue.
If you have thought that a little thing you do does not really count. read this
Over 23,000 Australians recently contacted global food and beverage giant, NestlĂ©, asking them to stop using palm oil linked to rainforest destruction. And Nestle has committed to identify and exclude companies from its supply chain that own or manage ‘high-risk plantations or farms linked to deforestation’. This exclusion would apply to companies such as Sinar Mas, Indonesia’s most notorious palm oil and pulp and paper supplier, if it fails to meet the criteria set out in the policy.
It also applies to NestlĂ©’s business with palm oil traders such as Cargill, which continues to buy from Sinar Mars.

Hope other companies will come to their senses as well.
In a meanwhile we will do something we can do. It all makes a difference.
