Palm Oil: A Global Threat to Rainforests

Palm oil is a globally traded agricultural commodity that is used in 50 percent of all consumer goods, from lipstick and packaged food to body lotion and biofuels. Demand for palm oil in the U.S. has tripled in the last five years, pushing palm oil cultivation into the rainforests and making this crop one of the key causes of global rainforest destruction.

Approximately 85 percent of palm oil is grown in the tropical countries of Indonesia, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea (PNG) on industrial plantations that have severe impacts on the environment, forest peoples and the climate.

North American food and agribusiness companies like Cargill purchase from, operate, and own many palm oil plantations in Southeast Asia, making our corporations a powerful force in the palm oil market and rainforest destruction.

RAN is actively working to stop the destruction of rainforests by using grassroots pressure, corporate engagement, and non-violent direct action to encourage companies and their customers to stop producing, trading and purchasing palm oil that destroys rainforests.

GREEN

Her name is Green, she is alone in a world that doesn’t belong to her.

She is a female orangutan, victim of deforestation and resource exploitation. This film is an emotional journey with Green’s final days. It is a visual ride presenting the treasures of rainforest biodiversity and the devastating impacts of logging and land clearing for palm oil plantations.

From Green, The Film

My name is Patrick, I am an ordinary citizen trying to help protect the rainforest and all the life it holds. I do so by making films on the forest and the industries destroying it.

After Tears of Wood, Losing Tomorrow and The Cathedral Forest, my latest film is Green.

Green is about the rainforest of Indonesia. It is 48 min long, it is available for free download for all private and public screenings. The film is in international version accessible to all nationalities, produced independently and free of all commercial or political attachment. Please don’t hesitate to screen the film wherever you feel appropriate.

To save the Indonesian rainforest we must choose to change our consumer habits so as to not be part of the destruction. If we are enough to do so, we can make a significant impact on the markets involved and make them change. All it takes is avoiding palm oil, tropicals hardwoods and paper from tropical countries.

We must show the way…

What you can do:

Do not buy any wood products like out-door furniture, flooring, doors, window frames, beams and plywood made of Indonesian wood such as Merbau, Kempas, Bangkirai, Keruing, Meranti, Teak, etc.  Consume as little paper as possible and never buy anything printed in China or South East Asia (most chances are the paper will be coming from Indonesia). When you do buy paper, try to avoid the brands which are all involved in the Indonesian paper industry: see below on picture and on PDF.

When buying your foods and cosmetics, avoid the brands that use Indonesian Palm Oil: see below on picture and on PDF.

Please report any errors so that the company name may be removed from the list.

the color green in all its incarnations
has many different implications
it can mean envy or wealth
naivete or our planets health
in its purest, most sought after state
green will seal our planet’s fate
