Palm Oil Issue

Found an article written by Hillary Rosner, she wrote about palm oil over the years including New York Times and Newsweek. Here’s some point I want to copy as reference.

Fact:

– palm oil is one of the planet’s most destructive ingredients. It is largely responsible for the massive deforestation of Borneo

– Indonesia and Malaysia together produce 85 percent of the global palm oil supply

– palm oil is often absent from the label, leaving consumers in the dark about what they’re actually buying and its impact.

– The race to plant more oil palm trees is driving orangutans to the brink of extinction. If orangutans die out, it will be almost single-handedly due to global demand for palm oil

– The latest battleground is central Africa, where old-growth forests in Gabon and Cameroon are on the chopping block.

company or product:

– Wilmar, a major palm oil supplier, buys from companies that are illegally clearing endangered tiger habitat — and then sells that oil to major U.S. brands.

– soy milk that doesn’t contain palm oil — in the form of vitamin A palmitate — has turned up exactly one brand, Edensoy

– The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), an industry group that certifies certain oil as “green,”

– Nestlé, Unilever and Wal-Mart have all pledged to transition to only sustainably sourced palm oil.

– Perhaps a group like WildAid, which tries to curb consumer demand for gruesome wildlife products like rhino horns, could partner with a few large conservation organizations and celebrities like DiCaprio to go into battle

Those are important facts all we should know, and some company I would try to connect so that to see any ideas inspiration or even collaboration.

Meeting with Odylique

Just some notes and recap after meeting with the highest ranking company from the Rainforest Foundation UK, Odylique. The Skin Care Company without any palm oil, animal test; All organic ingredients. They got many awards beginning from 2003.

For the artpiece I thought, they are willing to provide some moisture lipstick (To be confirm with the amount). If there’s about 40-50 pcs, I could still do that interactive artpiece. They also provide some vouchers, product package…I will keep thinking how to make use of them. The three color tone…Pink Salmon, Sky blue and Green are nice inspiration for me. Besides he Uni project, I do really interested in any chance for collaboration.

Polar Bear Living art

a corner from newspaper cut out a long time. That a charity event. Making a polar bear by many people. This is an idea that…when the art involve more people, it can raise awareness for sure….and if interactive with the audience….this also make them impressive and getting the knowledge in some way. That’s what I am planning to do in unit 2 project.
