Palm oil is a pervasive ingredient found on store shelves and in products like food (including vegan butter, cookies and tortillas), cosmetics, shampoo and even detergent. And, while it’s true that the irresponsible farming and production of palm, most commonly found in places like Southeast Asia, have led to the devastation of natural habitats, local environments and wildlife, that’s not the full story.  Palm Done Right is a mission-based educational platform dedicated to proving that there is a positive solution.

This is the third in a three-part series that takes a closer look at issues and misunderstandings around the controversial product’s production and a deep dive into positive solutions for change.

Palm can be grown for good, bringing benefits to:

  • Our planet, due to palm oil’s land efficiency.
  • Local communities, due to the economic development oil palm production creates.
