Haze-Free Palm Oil Campaign
How can you help?
We want to support local eateries and businesses that are most impacted by COVID-19.
What is the issue
The link between palm oil and haze
Palm oil is linked to deforestation and loss of wildlife in Indonesia and Malaysia. To grow palm oil, huge areas of peatland forests are cleared and drained, making the area highly susceptible to fire due to the dry landscape.
Huge forest fires are the main cause of haze, a crisis which contributes greatly to climate change, and produces detrimental social and environmental impacts.
What are the misconceptions?
A major misconception in regards to palm oil is that consumers should entirely boycott palm oil to stop the haze. In fact, palm oil is the most efficient oil crop and is the main source of living for farmers
Boycotting palm oil may in fact, lead to greater deforestation rate and induce more biodiversity loss due to companies switching to less efficient vegetable oils.
