An animated short showing the link between deforestation and our shopping behavior.

Forests are being cut down to make room for palm oil plantations. Palm oil is found in 60% of products on our supermarket shelves & growing. Demand is predicted to more than double by 2030 and to triple by 2050. Deforestation is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, threatens biological diversity, and has devastating impacts upon forest dependent peoples.
