Stop palm oil in Girl Scout Cookies

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 a big orangutan lover and am working very hard to help save them! It only takes a minute but your signature can help save many orangutans, other animals and the rainforest!

  • Heather Wendel As a former Girl Scout, I have continued to purchase girl scout cookies to help support our areas local troops. However, I was very disturbed to see the use of palm oil in the ingredient list. It is hard for me to think that this organization that has done such wonderful things for girls could be supporting the destruction of rainforests by sourcing this oil for their products. I will no longer purchase these cookies until you make a commitment to use more sustainable oils for your products. Furthermore, I will also work to educate others in regards to your decision to use palm oil.

    I sincerely hope that your organization would want to align your mission with your actions. Thank you for taking the time to consider my comments.

  • Loretta McConnor Do your research, GSA! When you replaced trans-fats in your cookies, you went to a saturated fat that is not only bad for people, it is bad for rainforests and orangutans. Better find an alternative and use one that's healthy or I will not buy any more cookies from you. I'll be waiting and watching.
