 In the spring of 2022, the St. Als Social Justice Super Leaders were looking into palm oil.  Here is a little bit of what we learned...

St. Als Social Justice Super Leaders would like you to know a little about palm oil. Palm oil is an edible
vegetable oil that comes from the fruit of oil palm trees
. Palm oil can be found in close to 50% of the
packaged products we find in consume/use, such as pizza, doughnuts and chocolate, to deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste and lipstick. Palm oil is an extremely versatile oil. It has many uses and can be produced and processed efficiently and inexpensively. Palm oil, however, has its problems. Using so much palm oil leads to deforestation, loss of natural habitats for many animals and forced displacement of people. Production also results in the release of harmful greenhouse gases that impact our environment, and many of the “farms” use child labour.
Be a wise consumer... look for products that do not use palm oil (watch out, it is a hidden ingredient as it has many, many forms!), or use products that are made with sustainable palm oil. These products are marked RSPO certified. Thank you for your consideration.
