The use of palm oil is not the problem, but the way in which we farm it in excess due to the nature of its use in so many products, is. Currently the regions that produce the majority of the palm oil are Indonesia, Borneo, Malaysia, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea, and Colombia; with smaller areas of production being Benin, Kenya and Ghana. The oil is used for a surprising range of things – soaps and detergents, cosmetics, chocolate, sweets, glue, printing ink, biodiesel, lubricants, frying, and baking, and one in two supermarket products will contain palm oil but often listed as "vegetable oil." The demand for palm oil has reached such heights that large areas of previously untouched forest in Indonesia and Malaysia are pulled down and replaced with factories to process the oil. As a result, big areas of forest are being lost, and the animals and birds that lived in those areas are being forced to try and survive elsewhere as their natural habitat is destroyed. Although this process is drastically changing the land and further endangering species such as orangutans and Sumatran tigers, there is hope for the forests of Indonesia and Malaysia. There are a number of organisations working hard to provide solutions to reverse the destructive cycle. Gradually, things are changing.
