Deforestation for palm oil production is not going away anytime soon. And it’s definitely not slowing down in Indonesia, the largest producer of the cooking oil. Recently, Greenpeace activists staged a protest on the cleared land of a freshly cut down rainforest for palm oil.

The protest was targeted at Proctor & Gamble (P&G), in the hopes that the company would switch their current palm oil sourcing to one that’s free of deforestation.

P&G is not directly responsible for the recent deforestation, but Multi Persada Gatramegah (PT MPG), a subsidiary of Musim Mas is. And Musim Mas is a palm oil supplier for P&G, thus connecting the American consumer goods company to this recent destruction.

Greenpeace activists in Indonesia held banners in protest, and unrolled a large one onto the deforested land owned by PT MPG. Will this protest get the attention of P&G? Or will this be an ongoing battle in which the company ignores the truth?

The products made from palm oil really do cost the earth.

Wake up humans, palm oil is not the only food causing this. Eat as local as you can, or stfu because you are supporting this.

Palm oil is in so much. Read everything carefully before buying and always steer clear of P&G. One of the most heartless and unethical companies out there. Unfortunately they're behind a lot of major products so you have to be really careful what you're buying. The more people who boycott their products the smaller they'll become.

Tell The Girls Scouts management to remove palm oil from their cookies. It is entirely unnecessary and destroys the habitats of so many different species from gorillas to tigers.

P&G has always been in some sort of forestry destruction which promises to reforest, where I come from they came to our once quiet community and flashed the green bills all over,that was 45 years ago every time I go back home for visits, it still looks like a bomb went off. They say they will restructure the area, but how do replace natural growth back to it's origin, and not to mention the natural habitats for the animals who are so quickly discarded, hurt and disposed of, truly it is about the $ and no matter there are always people who need and quick fix so they fall for all the propaganda, they promised jobs but brought their own people in, they promised to reforest, the trees they did put in died they were not from that area and the countless animals that were hunted out of season, to remove them from the work site, as far as palm oil is concerned it's again a replacement of oils that are being used out of context and people need to wake up
