Weird argument in the World Wildlife Fund’s magazine for why Swedes shouldn’t avoid buying palm oil.
“Sweden has such a small population that it doesn’t matter to the environment whether we buy environmentally destructive palm oil or not. The big markets are in other parts of the world. But if we buy environmentally certified palm oil, then we get to have a voice in the discussion about palm oil production.”
How would a small group of people buying certified oil have any impact on the market for uncertified oil? Makes no sense. I don’t want those producers to cultivate any oil palms whatsoever.
To protect the environment, I prefer to buy local rapeseed oil.
