Pepsi palm oil rainforest destruction - the add they don't want you to see


This is the add put out by Sum Of Us that puts a new light on Pepsi products. Pepsi uses palm oil in bulk which is driving the destruction of rain forests and the habitats of the species that live in them. 
Pepsi buys over 470,000 metric tons of palm oil per year to make products that we buy like Doritos, Cheetos, Quaker Granola Bars, and Lay’s potato chips.

The reality of what happens on oil palm plantations is very different to Pepsi’s fun, sexy advertising campaigns.

Pepsi’s conflict palm oil is driving rainforest destruction and the extinction of already endangered animals like orangutans, tigers, and elephants.

Workers in the palm oil industry are paid unethically low wages, and many don’t have adequate health and safety protection.

With the launch of Crystal Pepsi today, now’s a good time to spread the word about Pepsi’s practices, by watching the video and sharing the video with your friends, family, and colleagues. Sum of Us
