Group says Halloween candy may be killing orangutans

Primary tabs

A new campaign by the Rainforest Action Network reveals that the production of an ingredient in Halloween candy, palm oil, destroys rainforests, endangers threatened species, contributes to climate change, and hides a host of human rights violations.

 

The group is imploring “The Snack Food 20,” America’s top candy makers, to implement responsible palm oil policies and mitigate the unacceptable consequences of its production.
