Rainforests are being cut and burned at an alarming rate to clear land for palm oil tree plantations.
Holiday spoiler alert: Most store-bought desserts and baked sweets — everything from cookies and cupcakes to donuts and pies — use palm oil. So do packaged cookie doughs, pie crusts and dry cake or brownie mixes. Sadly, most bakeries also use palm oil, so even donuts and specialty cakes that you buy from Panera, Cheryl’s or Krispie Kreme have palm oil. What can you do?
Palm oil is a major culprit in habitat loss for wild tigers. If we can reduce the demand for it, we can help save the tigers!
Opt for palm oil-free treats this holiday!
