Save the Orangutan - Stop Palm Oil. Animals all over Borneo, Indonesia and Sumatran are suffering unimagainably in the name of palm oil. This ingredient is used in countless products under 'scientific' names. Orangutan parents are shot and their young torn away from them. We must stop such cruelty.

Glenn Hurowitz of Grist to the rescue. He wrote a great op-ed in the LA Times about the omnipresence of palm oil in everything from shampoo to cookies, finding rhino-killer in Oreos, Chewy Chips Ahoy!, Orville Redenbacher's popcorn, Hershey's Kisses "Hugs," Twix and more. And not just the mainstream stuff: it's in products from Burts Bees, Trader Joes, Whole Foods and other "green" sources.

"Since 1600, 90% of the virgin forests that once covered much of the lower 48 states have been cleared away. Most of the remaining old-growth forests in the lower 48 states and Alaska are on public lands. In the Pacific Northwest about 80% of this forestland is slated for logging." How much went for toilet paper?

PAWS TO TAKE ACTION - Please join us in asking companies to use only deforestation-free palm oil that is produced without destroying any wildlife habitat.

Types of Renewable Energy. The United States currently relies heavily on coal, oil and natural gas for its energy. Fossil Fuels are nonrenewable, that is, they draw on finite resources that will eventually dwindle, becoming too expensive or too environmentally damaging to retrieve, In contrast, renewable energy resources are constantly replenished and will never run out.
