image Costco Pies Are Cheap; And Contain Palm Oil and Palm Kernel Oil 480_costco_lattice_palm_oil_pies_1.jpg by Tomas DiFiore
Costco, RSPO, Wilmar, Cargill, IOI, does it matter? It’s overwhelmingly the big companies that are destroying forest to create oil palm plantations and causing dangerous climate change. Studies not only show that the narrative about who’s causing deforestation is incorrect. They also reflect broader, global issues about the unequal distribution of land. A recent background paper for the 2014 issue of the FAO’s State of Food and Agriculture report estimated that the world has somewhat over 570...

"The fact remains that US EPA scientists last November found all current uses of chlorpyrifos on food-related crops put children at risk due to unsafe levels in our food, air, water, and workplaces. Like the Trump Administration, the DPR continues to ignore the top government scientists in the land and continues to put our communities at risk.
