PAOV — Palm oil is a cheap additive currently used in many popular Costco products. But rainforests are being destroyed to make way for palm plants, killing and endangering the animals that inhabit them - like orangutans, tigers, and elephants. If you think it's time for Costco to join the palm oil-free movement, add your name below.

Palm Oil is a cheap additive in many products we consume/use each day. These include but are not limited to; food, beauty products and biofuel.

COSTCO currently uses palm oil in some of their baked goods as well as their own Kirkland brand products. Because Costco has such a global market of consumers, people have the right to know the effects of devastation the consumption of palm oil is having.

In Borneo there are rainforests that are being burned every second, so row upon row of palm plants can take their place. Animals such as orangutans have to evacuate quickly to save their lives. This devastation leaves dead or injured crying and orphaned baby orangutans among other animals. In Borneo and Sumatra this biodiverse forest is the last place on earth where tiger, orangutan and elephant still co exist.

We ask that Costco join the movement to end Palm oil use. Palm oil can come in various names (please research these) and email manufacturers to stop using Palm Oil.

Join me in asking Costco to be the great company we know and love, in making the right move for the planet, by totally eliminating palm oil from their brands, and to use their buying power to encourage other manufacturers to do the same.
