    At a local gibbon sanctuary, I learned the poor creatures are endangered due to loss of habitat to palm plantations. The tour guide informed us that the best way to help is to avoid purchasing palm oil products. I checked the ingredients on my store bought vegan soap and saw that it was made with palm oil, and so were the other brands. After taking a soap making class in March 2017, I have been saving rainforests one shower at a time with my vegan palm-free soap! My silly dream is to create a line of palm-free skin products and use marketing to educate the public about the perils of palm oil.

    Palm oil production causes habitat loss due to deforestation, endangering rainforest species. Alternatives, such as soy wax, are available for soaping.
