Learned quite a bit about this oil that’s in practically every product from detergent to beauty products under many names in the ingredients.

Only 35% of palm oil is sustainable. That’s scary low.

Since agricultural land is limited, in order to plant monocultures of oil palms, land used for other cultivations or the tropical forest need to be cleared. Of the total logging in Indonesia, up to 80% is reported to be performed illegally.[15] A major environmental threat is then the destruction of rainforests in Indonesia, which was estimated at 0.84 Mha of primary forest per year from 2000 to 2012.[16] From 1990 to 2005, 108,110 square miles of Indonesian forest were taken down from logging, 77% of this forest had never even been touched.
