As consumers, our purchasing decisions can have a major influence on companies' use of sustainable palm oil. Contact consumer brands that buy mainly unsustainable palm oil and let them know this matters to you.
Many consumer brands report their total palm oil use and sustainable palm oil use to the RSPO. The most recent reports, which are for 2018, indicate the following major consumer companies buy primarily unsustainably grown palm oil. On the positive side, even these companies are working toward sustainability, but with little consumer pressure, they are lagging.
Take a few minutes to call or email them. Let them know sustainable palm oil is important and that you are considering that in your purchasing decisions.
My family has become concerned about the need for sustainable palm oil. Given its extreme importance for climate and critically endangered species, we have decided we must consider this in our purchases. Your company RSPO report indicates you use some sustainable palm oil, but that most is unsustainable. Will you achieve 100% sustainable, traceable palm oil this year?
Thank you for your help!
