There are many environmental and ethical reasons to avoid consuming palm oil. The production of palm oil is causing mass deforestation in that “up to 300 football fields of forest are cleared every HOUR to make room for palm plantations.” As a result of this forest clearing, orangutan populations are decreasing drastically due to the habitat loss. The Sumatran tiger and rhino populations are also decreasing. There are products made with sustainably sourced palm oil, but it is also possible to avoid it altogether to be sure.

We put together a list of 15 vegan, palm-free snacks available on Amazon to help you get started!
