Oil palms grow best in low-lying, warm and humid areas around the equator, exactly where tropical rainforests proliferate, as well as in the hot savannah areas of Central Africa and Latin America. The establishment of palm oil plantations has led to large-scale deforestation, especially in Indonesia and Malaysia.
What is the problem with palm oil?
Acres of trees are being cut down with all the consequences that this entails:
Local people and endangered animals lose their habitats
The destruction of forests and the draining of peatlands create highly inflammable areas. Indonesia is literally in flames every year as a result. The suffocating smoke causes serious health problems for hundreds of thousands of people.
Deforestation, which often goes hand in hand with fierce forest fires, releases a lot of CO2. This causes the earth's climate to change even faster.
The use of pesticides on plantations completely exhausts the soil and causes irreparable damage.
