Hello, lovely Earth-enthusiasts and followers! 

IT HAS BEEN DONE I HAVE FINALLY FOUND A PALM OIL FREE DEODORANT. Tom’s from Maine (x) makes an excellent line of natural, palm oil free, non-animal tested, just pretty freaking great deodorant. I highly recommend it and am a personal user. 

Keep on rockin’.

This mother was found on a palm oil plantation because her forest canopy had been destroyed. A mob beat her, then tried drowning her in a swimming pool. After the photo was taken she died, her baby was rescued. THIS HAPPENS EVERY DAY IN INDONESIA AND MAYLASIA. EVERY DAY. 70% OF THE RAINFOREST IS GONE FOREVER. EVERY BAR OF SOAP AT WHOLE FOODS contains palm oil.! Most packaged foods you buy also do. Boycott palm oil now to stop this.

We have destroyed the forests, eroded the topsoil, changed the composition of the atmosphere, depleted the protective ozone layer, tampered with the climate, poisoned the air and the waters. We have become predators on the biosphere – full of arrogant entitlement, always taking and never giving back. And so, we are now a danger to ourselves and the other beings with whom we share the planet.

Carl Sagan, Billions and Billions (1997)

There is an opportunity to save what is left, I really wonder if it will be used. (via sci-universe)

Cultivating, harvesting and processing palm oil is big business. However, this $44 billion industry has wreaked havoc on forests, caused steep declines in animal populations, has encouraged child labor and is contributing to climate change.
