DID NOT SEE THAT COMING.
what the shit
Wait, what? I have so many questions.
Palm oil. Much of the palm oil sources are not sustainable- about 85% actually. Check the label before you buy. If it’s sustainable, it will say “CSPO” for certified sustainable palm oil or will say sustainable on it. Look for the wwf seal as well.
ALSO: PSA. Trader Joe’s uses palm oil in a LOT of their products. I was so disappointed when I found this out (I don’t read a bunch of labels there before purchasing because things are usually and reliably marked as vegan or not). According to different places around the web, they’re not super specific on where they source their palm oil and can’t guarantee that some of their palm oil does not come from unsustainable sources that kill orangutans, though they maintain that the bulk of it comes from ethical sources in South America.

Koko the gorilla is a resident at the Gorilla Foundation in Woodside, CA and communicates understands spoken english and uses over 1,000 signs to share her feelings and thoughts on daily life. After the first call about Robin’s passing, Koko came to Dr. Patterson with an inquiring look on her face. Dr. Patterson explained that ‘we have lost a dear friend, Robin Williams. Koko was quiet and looked very thoughtful, Koko signed the words for “woman” and “crying.” Koko became very somber, with her head bowed and her lip quivering; she was crying over the loss of her friend.
"Robin made Koko smile — something she hadn’t done for over six months, ever since her childhood gorilla companion, Michael, passed away. Not only did Robin cheer up Koko, the effect was mutual, and Robin seemed transformed — from a high-energy entertainer, into a mellow, sensitive, empathetic guy, who also happened to be really funny." -Dr. Patterson
