Is There Palm Oil in That?

I’m leaving for Honduras tomorrow morning on an interesting mission — to learn as much as I can about sustainable palm oil farming and production in a few short days. The trip is courtesy of Rainforest Alliance, a great organization that works to improve environmental stewardship and accountability, conserve biodiversity, and make farming sustainable all across the world.
This blog post was forwarded to me by the organizer of the trip and provides interesting background on palm oil, and why it’s such a big issue. I urge everyone to read it, since palm oil exists in 50% of the things we buy and consume, and more people should be aware of the implications of that.
