Demand deforestation-free groceries

The bad news first: Tropical deforestation accounts for about 10% of the world’s global warming emissions, and contributes to habitat loss and species extinction.

The good news:  The demand for palm oil (found under different names in so many food and non-food items) is expected to double by the year 2020.  If grown on degraded, mineral rich (instead of forested peat) land, it CAN be a sustainable product.

Please don’t waste another minute to sign this petition to help save our tropical forests and protect our planet.

(Consuming a little less on an individual level never hurts, either).

Thank you for taking the two minute challenge to be the change you wish to see in the world!
