Stop palm oil in Girl Scout Cookies

406 Signatures Goal: 500

Hello, How many of you have every eaten a Girl Scout Cookie Girl Scout Cookies seem so harmless, it seems like a great fundraiser. But actually it\'s not, Girl Scout Cookies have palm oil in them. Palm oil harms the rainforest and you! The rainforest is cleared and orangutans and many othere animals lose their homes and food so that large oil palm plantations can be planted. Palm oil hurts you because it promotes heart disease and raises your cholestrol. I would like to urge you not to eat palm oil and to sign this petition (and send it to friends) asking Girl Scouts to stop using palm oil so that your kids are able to know what an orangutan is. Thanks! My goal is to get 500 signatures! So every one is very important!

    I am appalled that rather than educate people to eat palm-oil free in the light of the continuing, relentless destruction of the scientifically spectacularly interesting and essential Indonesian rainforests - you are actually tearing down the lungs of the planet to make spurious, 'sustainable' palm plantations - that are used to make 'cookies' (biscuits) for American girl-scouts! This constitutes the most enormous lack of responsibility toward our planet and the essential life-forms that nature provided - with which to sustain people healthily and humanely. Please stop using this stuff to make nibbles!

    Something so good should not come from something so bad. We and the animals need those forests and they really are not ours to obliterate even if you have the money to do so. Cookies not only taste good but have ingredients that are not from rain forests where habitat is cut down at such an alarming rate.

    As a person with Coronary artery disease I know the effects. You can still make cookies using heart healthy products with little effect on the taste
