Absolutely great! I am sometime who is extremely wary of where the palm oil in the products I buy comes from and I LOVE using this app! It's so easy to use and does exactly what it is intended to do. If everyone used this app, the animals that are affected by palm oil would definitely benefit. Go orangutans!
I use this to help combat climate change The most important app you can use to help wildlife, and makes it easy for you to make a difference every time you shop.
Needs more products on but otherwise amazing! Really helpful when a product has palm oil in and I want to check if it is sustainable :) I would love if they had more products on the app but its an ongoing project obviously!
Palm oil What doesn't
Not fit for purpose Nice idea but i'm afraid this app doesn't cut it. Tried it on a few products that I know contain non sustainable palm oil and they were rated "good". This will be more of a hindrance than a help. It seems the only way is to go completely palm oil free by doing your own research. Furthermore it's great to be aware of the destruction of orangutans, but how about your own body as a human being? Palm oil is some pretty nasty saturated fat whether sustainable or not.
The purpose of this app is to use sustainable palm oil, not no palm oil at all. It is lovely and if you want to know why sustainable is better than a boycott go to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo palm oil page
We've added a barcode scanner to make it easier to find orangutan-friendly products while shopping!
