Conflict Palm Oil

Posted by tinako on October 10, 2013

last stand logo_400pxDid you know that palm oil is associated with rainforest destruction?  If you’re eating a whole-foods diet, you won’t run into it too much.  The video at Rainforest Action Network features peanut butter with palm oil in it.  Yuck.  I’ve had non-natural peanut butter and it tastes like slightly-peanut-flavored Crisco.  Stick with the peanuts.
