While Procter & Gamble were advertising about motherhood, companies that produce palm oil for P&G have been making orphans out of orangutans. Everyone needs to know that deforestation to create palm oil plantations means orangutans are senselessly orphaned. Together, we can get P&G to commit to only using forest-friendly palm oil.
Head & Shoulders has a dirty secret:
The Indonesian rainforest — home to 10-15% of all species on earth, including the last remaining 400 Sumatran tigers — is being methodically destroyed. And the biggest driver of this destruction is palm oil, an ingredient in everything from cookies to shampoo.
But palm oil production doesn’t have to be tied with forest destruction.
Still, key corporate holdouts like Procter & Gamble — the makers of Head & Shoulders — are stalling the progress. Procter & Gamble continues to buy dirty palm oil linked to deforestation.
