Give palm oil the slip this Christmas

Palm oil

Who wants their Christmas to contribute to crises in the jungle? We thought so.
Palm oil is back in the public eye after having taken a temporary backseat to the war on plastic – but since Iceland’s brave efforts to raise awareness, we are all trying to be more conscious of the plight of the rainforest and its inhabitants.
Palm oil is in everything from cosmetics to confectionary and whilst it may be harder to spot than plastic, it doesn’t mean that avoiding it is impossible.
Below is a list of palm-oil free stocking fillers that you can buy for your loved ones this Christmas -without tainting the spirit of giving by destroying the rainforest.
