    Your agrument about going vegan is not helpful because tons of vegan food as palm oil in it (earth balance, justin’s, back to nature , etc). These companies should be ashamed of their hypocrisy . The only way I see it is for vegans to stop buying from these companies and call them out on their error.

    RSPO was always an industry-led group so it’s unclear why would focus on its false claims.

    Palm oil grown on non-clear-cut land that is fully traceable and does not involve the extinction of non-human persons is *widely* available:

      If RSPO already doesn’t mean much and many companies get the certificate without even adhering to the rules, then why should people believe that POIG, a group that also includes many palm oil companies, is any more trustworthy?

      Sure, it is good to work towards a more sustainable palm oil industry as it’s unlikely the world is going 100% palm oil free, but research has shown that the RSPO is not much of an improvement and not exactly reliable and I don’t see why another group that includes many of the same people and says to support RSPO would be more trustworthy.
