Some of the companies in todays world are trying to keep their ways a secret, even when I ask them on a private mail they would not tell me anything. I know what they hide.
I started to know things since 2012, because:
I was sitting in my room and reading on my computer about an organization called "The rainforest foundation".
I figured out that some furniture is made of woods that are going extinct. That our food and everyday product consist palm oil, and we don't have much of a chance to know if it is illegal. They hide palm oil under the name names: vegetable oil and Sodium Laureth Sulfate. Someone who have to hide something... Must be very trustworthy, right?
For example, Mr. Trump did not want people to know anything about his taxes. It was leaked that he had not been paying them, for 17 years! "Let's make America great again!" he shouted, and I asked:: "For whom? Yourself? You Mr. Trump for sure don't care about the community." And guess what?
The urge of getting rich does that to people. People who crave for money does not make moral to their top priorities. They know what they do. Trust me. They just don't care enough.
So I did learn a few things:
Palm oil consist in almost every product, even toothpaste, handsoaps, shampoos and creams.
We should keep away from those products cause they are ruining for indidgenous people and their precious rainforest.
We can demonstrate, be curious, use your mouth to ask questions, inform others, be angry and be fair.
I have seen smart people taking a stand against it as soon as they get to know this horrible truth. I have heard about people who risk their life by physically stopping the illegal workers so that they can save the rain forest. The world needs the rain forest, watch any documentary about it and you will understand why.
At every grocery store you will figure out palm oil is one of the most used ingredients in toothpaste and soaps. It is, of course, hiding behind SLES. They can't keep doing it if you realize that it means... the companies knows they are doing a crime but keep on doing it for money.
Let's make some changes!
Because we can find some other products to take in joining us in our daily life.
The brands: Dr organic who doesn't use it SLES at all.
Body shop who does not hide what they are doing, and try to save the forest.
And here are more examples:
When it comes to SLES-free toothpaste, I recommend these:
Prodox, PRO-EMALJ or Zendium
If u wanna be aware I suggest that you start to be careful of the ingredients when you buy these types of food:
Biscuits, Chocolate, noodles, frozen pizza, lasagna, and other fast foods! And then shampoo and handsoap, and toothpaste!
So last autumn I mailed some companies and I did not get an answer from all. I got an answer from Lano. Pleased that they wrote to me, but not happy they can not tell me where their palm oil came from.
I hope that one day, we can hold the ones that are responsible, actually responsible. Also we have to start with ourselves. Boycotting those who want to keep secrets is a good way to start.
"This is a fight, and hopefully a revolution. But it must start with you."
