I pledge to not purchase anything made with palm oil, including food and cosmetics. I will read labels and even if a company claims to source “clean palm oil” I will not buy the product. Tropical rainforests are being clear cut – and their biodiversity erased- to grow vast monocultures of palm oil for our consumption.
I pledge to make a farm or farmers market my first destination for eating in season and living a local-sustainable lifestyle. I will choose local food first for the freshest, most nutritious and delicious food that sustains us and our farmers while supporting the local economy and building food resiliency.
