It is estimated that palm oil is now found in 50% of all items in our shopping basket including food, cleaning products and cosmetics. How did this happen and at what cost?

Join environmental not-for-profit Sustainable Table and Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Australia for a screening of multi-award winning documentary Green, and to learn about the complex issue of palm oil production and how we can be part of the solution.

You’ve got the family coming over for afternoon tea and haven’t had time to bake a cake, so you whip out the Tim Tams and Mint Slices, pour some Samboy chips in a bowl and throw together a platter of Ritz crackers with Mainland cheese. Nothing wrong with that right? Think again. Every single item in that spread contains palm oil.

So alarmed you feel like rinsing your mouth out with soap? There’s issues with that too, because the vast majority of soaps and toothpastes such as Dove and Colgate contain palm oil as well.

In fact, it is estimated palm oil is found in 50% of all items on supermarket shelves. Processed foods, cleaning products, skincare products; the list goes on.

Why is palm oil such a problem; why has it increased in use by 10-fold since 1980; and what is it doing to our environment and Orangutan populations?

On the evening, Louise Grossfeldt, Vice President of Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Australia, will share her vast knowledge and explore the environmental impacts of industrial oil palm plantations, as well as the devastating impact they are having on one of man’s closest animal relatives, the Orangutan.
