Sometimes it takes an image to make an impact, and sometimes it takes a short video. This one did it for me. Please read the below, it is pasted from the video’s description… You can see the video if you scroll down a little..

Rainforests are being destroyed for palm oil and pushing the last wild orangutans to the brink of extinction. At Rainforest Action Network our goal is to collect 60,600 photo petitions – that’s one person for each orangutan remaining in the wild. We’ll deliver these photos to the Snack Food 20, the top snack food companies that are using this Conflict Palm Oil in our food.

RAN teamed up with Free Range Studios to produce this 2 minute video to launch The Last Stand of the Orangutan: The Power is in Your Palm – a new national campaign exposing the US snack food industry for putting Conflict Palm Oil into the food products we buy everyday.

After watching and taking action at http://InYourPalm.org, please share this video far and wide to help us achieve the greatest impact possible.

Palm oil is found in roughly half the products sold in grocery stores and its production is now one of the leading causes of rainforest destruction worldwide. It is the single biggest threat driving orangutans toward extinction and is responsible for widespread human rights violations including displacement of Indigenous Peoples, land conflicts with forest dependent communities, and forced and child labor.

On top of that, deforestation in Indonesia and Malaysia, where palm oil is grown, is pushing more carbon pollution into earth’s atmosphere each year than all the cars, trucks, planes, trains and ships in the United States combined. In fact, due to deforestation, Indonesia has the third largest greenhouse gas emissions behind China and the United States.

But we can do something about it!

The most popular and influential snack food companies using Conflict Palm Oil, dubbed the “Snack Food 20″ by RAN, control some of America’s most well known household brands including Pepsi, Heinz, Hershey’s, Kraft and Smuckers. They spend millions a year to instill brand loyalty and trust in their customers – us – and they really care what we think. It is crucial that these companies hear from you right now. Tell them that you will not stand for Conflict Palm Oil in your food. Together we can convince these brands to take action and change the destructive way Conflict Palm Oil is grown.
