Download the Palm Oil Shopping Guide App Today!

As a part of Birmingham Zoo’s conservation efforts, we have shared a convenient, sustainable palm oil app for all Android and Apple devices. What is palm oil? Palm oil is the most widely produced edible oil and can be found in every day products such as cookies, crackers, candy, frozen dinners, shampoo, lotions, cosmetics and pet food. The high demand for palm oil has led to a rapid destruction of the rainforest habitat, home to endangered Sumatran and Bornean orangutans. By downloading the Palm Oil Shopping Guide app, you can find out how to take the next step in making a difference for orangutans and other species affected by the palm oil crisis. To download the app and learn more about palm oil-friendly shopping decisions, please click the appropriate links below.*
