Denver Zoo, Palm Done Right Educate on Sustainable Palm Oil Farming

Published on: May 31, 2021

Boulder, CO—Palm Done Right has partnered with Denver Zoo to encourage consumers to Shop Smart to Save Sloths. Sloth populations are threatened by unsustainable harvesting of palm trees, as the animals naturally inhabit tropical forests in South and Central America that are affected by deforestation. 
Denver Zoo is launching a new Sloth Exhibit this month at the northeastern corner of the Zoo’s campus. This will be home to two members of the Linne’s two-toed sloth species—” power couple” Elliot and Charlotte, the press release states.
The new exhibit aims to create awareness for Palm Done Right and help spread the word about the importance of sustainable palm oil production. Visitors will learn about the importance of protecting the sloth’s natural habitat and how they can contribute by making conscious product choices that help protect the planet. The “Adopt-an-Animal” Program will feature several brand partners committed to sustainable palm oil sourcing, like NutivaMary’s Gone CrackersYum ButterWay Out Wax, and Oregon Soap Company.
