palm oil action…hopefully

I am so damn hopeful. Finally, the Truth in Labelling bill has reached the House and, with any luck, this will mean that palm oil will be labelled as such and the masquerade of ‘vegetable oil’ will end.

This will be a major achievement if it goes through. It will mean that people will be able to make truly informed decisions about the environment and their health.

It will hopefully mean a small step towards the preservation of severely endangered species such as Sumatran and Bornean orangutans.

Hope hope hope. I will keep you posted on the outcome.
