Palm Oil Is A Cruelty-Free Friend, Not Enemy

If you live a cruelty-free or vegan lifestyle, the solution to environmental issues or tortured animals is often to cut things out. Cut out meat, cut out plastics, cut out leather, etc.

However, ending the sale of a product or packaging is not always the best solution. Some products are sustainable, but are not grown and cultivated to be eco-friendly, animal-friendly or even human-friendly.

One of those products is palm oil. Oh man do people spew real hatred over palm oil. But palm oil is not the enemy, it is the SOLUTION! Stay with me here.

You’ve probably heard the horror stories about palm oil. Orphaned orangutans, rainforests destroyed, smoldering fires that pollute the air. The imagery is intense.

HOWEVER, palm oil is actually an inherently sustainable and nutrient-dense oil.
