Shockingly, in the last 16 years, 100,000 Bornean orangutans have been lost. Palm oil companies are destroying their habitat, and unless we do everything we can now, they could be gone from the wild forever.
Palm oil can be produced without destroying rainforests. Despite knowing this Mondelez, the makers of Oreo cookie, continue to buy palm oil from Wilmar — the dirtiest palm oil giant in the world — putting profits above the sake of Indonesian rainforests.
Today activists delivered a message to the makers of Oreo drawing a connection to dirty palm oil, deforestation, and the cookie. No one bites into an Oreo thinking about these things. That’s why we went to the global headquarters of Mondelez, the makers of Oreo to show them what’s really in between the cookie.
In the last two years alone, over 25,000 hectares of orangutan habitat has been destroyed by companies who supply palm oil to Mondelez.
Almost ten years ago, Mondelez promised to clean up its palm oil by removing rainforest destruction and human right abuses from its supply chains.
But here we are, and they are still using palm oil from rainforest destroyers — with no end in sight.
Over 600,000 people have told the makers of products like Oreo to drop dirty palm oil, and they need to act now.
If we get Oreo to drop the dirtiest of all palm oil traders Wilmar, we can get the entire industry to change, and save these rainforests once and for all.
Indonesia’s forests are the lungs of our planet, home to Indigenous People and iconic species like the orangutan. They’re also among our strongest defense against climate change.
That’s why we must do everything we can to protect them.
Thank you for taking action,
Senior Palm Oil Campaigner, Greenpeace USA
P.S. Did you know that every year more than 40 billion Oreo cookies are produced in 18 countries around the world, and if all these Oreos stacked on top of one another they would circle the world 5 times!1
