What An Orangutan Says To This Little Girl Is A Message We All Need To Know About

Curated by

I have to admit something: I LOVE orangutans. I have a picture of a baby one on my desktop right now. (So cute!) If I could have a conversation with an orangutan, I'd be in hog heaven. However, this particular conversation is way more important than it is cute.

Even though this isn't a real conversation, the message is true. Here is the important part at the end of the video:

"Orangutans can't speak for themselves, but if they could they would tell us that much of the palm oil used in America's snack food is being grown by cutting down rain forests that are orangutans only home. But we can stop it by telling brands that use palm oil there's a better way. We'll use our customer power to demand change, before it's too late. The power is in your palm."
