Finding alternatives to palm oil

Your trees in Indonesia

Widespread palm oil plantations across Indonesia illustrate the environmental degradation of a once vivid ecosystem. 25% of Indonesia’s rainforests have been replaced by vast palm oil plantations, pushing out wildlife and endangering the livelihoods of farming communities. With your help, we are restoring forests on former plantations to create alternative sources of income.
