Glossy hair and no dandruff comes at a steep cost: there’s a big chance that the palm oil in Procter & Gamble’s Head & Shoulders and Herbal Essences shampoo is grown on burned and bulldozed rainforest in the Leuser ecosystem – the orangutan capital of the world.
The latest report from our partners draws a clear picture: At least one rogue palm oil producer is razing the Leuser rainforest in Indonesia – and to make bad things worse, one of them is illegally setting carbon-rich peatland on fire. That’s a triple-hit to the climate crisis!
Consumer goods giant Procter & Gamble doesn’t care where the palm oil it uses to make shampoo comes from. But its annual shareholder meeting is coming up in weeks, so now is the time to make noise and tell this notorious forest destroyer to stop sourcing palm oil grown on burnt orangutan habitat.
Tell Procter & Gamble: Put rogue palm oil producers on your no-buy list!
