The world's first 'sustainable palm oil city'

by Webmaster, 19th March 2019

A city in the Welsh Borders claims to be the first to commit to sustainable use of palm oil

More than 50 schools, restaurants and other businesses across the city of Chester have committed to using only sustainable palm oil in their products.

This is after a campaign by Chester Zoo to tackle the worldwide problem of using palm oil sourced from rainforests, resulting in the destruction of habitat for many species of animal, including orangutans and tigers, threatening them with extinction.

But the 50 organisations in Chester have committed to adapt their supply chains so the oil – used in so many of our everyday foods and household products – is bought from sustainable sources.

Campaigners hope this will have a wider impact worldwide with other cities following the same idea.
