Palm oil

Email template | Change.orgr1

PAOV — Girl Guide Ophelia is calling on the Girl Guides Canada to stop using palm oil in their cookies. The process of growing and harvesting palm oil causes massive deforestation. Ophelia wants the organization to set a positive example by changing their recipe and switching to a more sustainable oil. If you agree with Ophelia, you can help by signing the petition.

Stop the use of Palm Oil in Girl Guide cookies!

Palm Oil is used in 90% of products you see in stores today. It’s an oil made from oil palm trees which primarily grow in tropical countries. There’s a massive problem: it’s extremely destructive. It creates mass deforestation and uses child and human labour. It is also causing thousands of animals like orangutans to become endangered or extinct. The way Wilmar (the main Palm Oil producer) harvests Palm Oil makes it impossible to re plant the rain forest to the way it was before, so we need to stop them before its too late! Girl Guides uses Palm Oil in their cookies. We can swap to a more sustainable oil. I am a part of Girl Guides of Canada and am trying to get them to change their recipe as well. I already sent them an email (over a year) explaining the same information as here and got no response. I am hoping you will sign this to help me get my message across to a great organization that helps women around the world. If you sign you are helping the environment around the world and encouraging a large organization to change and set an example for other businesses as well. If you do sign, Thank you.
