q: when you look at your labels- does your product include palm oil?
it’s cheap, but (as goes with everything) has big time costs!
why is it bad?
1 of the leading causes of global #deforestation.
natural habitat and #ecosystem destruction. #orangutans (in borneo and sumatra) have lost 80% of their natural habitat in the past 20 years!
this also impacts other species including #tigers in sumatra, and we are bulldozing the life out of #forests that haven’t been touched in hundreds, if not thousands, of years.
human rights violations! trafficking, loss of land, loss of homes.
and it’s not even good for us! has similar properties and occurrences in the body when consuming trans fats.
it’s literally in everything, so take a peak at your labels, and as always, make the decision that’s best for you.

Imparare a conoscere, a conoscerci, perché davvero tutto quello di cui abbiamo bisogno sta sotto al nostro naso. rimango stupita ogni volta dalla bellezza della natura e dalla sua estrema efficacia. potremmo davvero fare a meno di tanti intrugli e risparmiare parecchio, in tanti sensi. è tutto giá a nostra disposizione. 🌼 #infuso#bardana#calendula#remedies#mykindofmagic
