Make a Statement
As the most biodiverse ecosystems found on land, tropical forests are essential to the health of our planet. Unfortunately, the world’s tropical forests are being destroyed due to the quickly rising global demand for palm oil used in common consumer products like processed food, detergents, cosmetics, and biofuel.
To meet rising demands for palm oil, vast areas of tropical forests are being cleared and burned to make room for palm oil plantations, which now stand as the leading cause of rainforest destruction in Malaysia and Indonesia - two countries with the most biodiverse tropical forests on Earth. As more and more tropical forests get burned to the ground, astronomical levels of greenhouse gasses are released into our atmosphere while endangered species like tigers, elephants, and orangutans are left without shelter.
Raising awareness is key to saving our tropical forests by supporting more sustainable palm oil production. We urge you to make an earth-friendly statement every time you wear these leggings in honor of our tropical forests.
