    • Dear Mr Huthart,

      Palm Oil is made from oil palm trees. Palm oil is clearing orang-utans habitats beacause people are cutting down trees to make room for palm oil plantations. This is the reason why orang-utans are endagered. Palm oil is a cheap oil used in many products including M&M’s and Oreos. It is sometimes disgised as Vegetable oil or even numbers. It can’t make you sick and isn’t bad for you, but it is afftecting the orang-utans habitat. I hope you found this information interesting!

    • Brilliant work Damian. Did any of these products label clearly in words that they contained palm oil?

      Damian can you answer Mr Huthart (he is the Deputy principal of the school in England that we quad blogged with) why we are looking at the products with palm oil in them?

    Kellogs Cereal
    Coconut M&Ms

    That’s it really, our pantry isn’t full of palm oil which is good.
