Palm Oil: Issues of Climate Change and Human Rights Violations

Posted by Mike Confino, April 8, 2015

We often use household products without ever thinking where they come from, how they are produced, and who produces them. We live in a comfortable world where we simply go to the grocery store and buy things we need without thinking twice about their production or how they landed on our grocery store shelves. Our thoughts do not go beyond how everything is accessible, useable and available for consumption.

However, without understanding how the products we consume are derived and manufactured, we may not realize how our use of such products contributes to the destruction of the environment and negatively affecting indigenous social values by using such products. One such product is palm oil.
