The world’s most untouched rainforest obliterated for palm oil while the world watches and does nothing. Located in Indonesia, Borneo is the third largest island in the world. It’s home to some of the rarest species on earth, including the pigmy elephant, clouded leopard, and the Sumatran rhinoceros.

The country is undergoing break-neck economic development, and environmental laws are weak to the point of unenforceability. Palm oil is used in crackers, chocolate, ice cream, pastries, crackers, Nutella, etc.
