Sustainable palm oil
There are some sustainable practices put in place where various stakeholders including WWF and Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) , are in close collaboration and have set their aim to produce palm oil without causing deforestation and harm to people, but there are far more that are not, so there is a lot still that can be done.
Ways you can help in your everyday routine:
There are some items we cannot avoid using on a daily basis, but there are others which we can purchase instead that are non-conflict palm oil products. Help reduce the demand!
1. Swapping: Check the ingredients of products before you add them to your shopping basket; alternatives generally contain Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO) or look for alternative ingredients to palm oil that don't have negative environmental and social implications. This sounds long-winded but once one shopping basket has been filled with non-conflict palm oil products, it will be easy to repeat next time you shop! There are logos below to help you what to look out for on certain products (here's WWF's list of products with palm oil).
