Be More Aware Of Animals On The Road

Tue 16th September 2014 (0 comments)



Every year millions of animals both small and big are killed on Britain's roads all over the country. From large cities to tiny country roads, creatures are increasingly under threat from the ever expanding amount of traffic, with thousands more cars appearing on the roads every single year.

Palm Oil Campaign

Palm oil plantations have been popping up rapidly over recent years, but many of them are illegally set-up in natural forest and peat-land and are completely unregulated. Thousands of acres of both primary and secondary forest that are either vital to conservation or the native people are being cleared every year. The trade is thought to now account for up to 10% of the world's total greenhouse gas emissions.
 
This boom has happened mainly over the last 10 years and has made palm oil the most used edible oil today. It is found in thousands of products from chocolate and biscuits to soap and lipstick, but many companies actually have no idea where their palm oil even comes from. Under current European legislation, companies do not have to state if they have used palm oil in their products, instead it can be labelled as vegetable oil!
