A project with Pepi de Boissieu for raising awareness on bad habits we have that are destroying nature.
It’s a fact that by 2050 our oceans will have more plastic than fish. It is amazing that even knowing this we still accept tons of plastic in our shopping options. When we shop for food for instance we need to turn down the products that come over packaged with layers and layers of plastic. Climate Change is happening and we, creatives and designers must take the lead on good consuming behavior as we are who dictate how and what to consume.
You might not cook with it, but you almost certainly eat or use palm oil.
Palm oil is the most widely consumed vegetable oil on the planet, and it is in about half of all packaged products sold in the supermarket.
Palm oil grows in tropical rainforests, and the uncontrolled clearing of these forests for conventional palm oil plantations has led to widespread loss of these irreplaceable and biodiverse rich forests. Plantations have also been connected to the destruction of habitat of endangered species, including orangutans, tigers, elephants and rhinos, often burning these animals to death. It’s time to read the labels of what you buy!
