Nestle’s use of palm oil in their tremendously popular KitKat has been spreading like wildfire on the Internet. The palm oil comes from what used to be rainforest in Indonesia, killing off the home of the orangutan and many many other species. Each of us CAN make the difference on this issue. I attend the University of Aberdeen. Today I walked into the campus services office and had a chat with a member of staff about KitKat being sold in their Fairtrade cafes. Because I made the effort to speak to him he is now going to get in touch with Fairtrade UK (and put me in touch with them as well) to clarify their position on this matter.
Each one of us can help tilt the earth back to a just balance. Spread the word. Read more about reforestation projects in Indonesia.
