Be Orangutan-Friendly with Your Halloween Candy!

One of the ingredients in many types of candy is palm oil. Palm oil plantations are quickly destroying and covering vast areas of rainforest that Bornean and Sumatran Orangutans call home. While more solutions are on the way (sustainable yields, alternate ingredients, orangutan safe labeling), the very best way you can help Orangutans this Halloween is buy candy that does NOT contain palm oil. Halloween has the highest grossing candy sales of any holiday. Some easy choices that are Orangutan-Friendly - 100 Grand, M&Ms, Tootsie Rolls, Airheads, Blowpops and Dots.
