Talking about Palm Oil
- Look at the list of the big companies that are still causing harm to many rainforests with their consumption of Palm Oil.
- Open your cupboard and see if you have any products of this brand OR owned by this brand
- Together list alternatives to a favourite brand of yours – can you by it from someone else? Can you make it? Can you live without it?
- How can you raise awareness of this?
Here are some ideas:
Make a graph to show to percentage of rainforest left in the world.
Learn about the different animals who live in these rainforests.
Learn about the people who live here – what is happening to them?
Try and find some recipes so you can make your own cosmetics, chips or chocolate bars!
