 Chocolate goodies from Ethical Superstore Palm oil free gifts from Ethical Superstore

Palm oil is probably in far more products in your home than you'd expect - but it's not a sustainable ingredient and it contributes to  deforestation, habitat degradation, climate change, animal cruelty and indigenous rights abuses. So if you'd like to find a gift for the eco-friendly person in your life, take a look at these products which do not have palm oil in them or at the very least have sustainble palm oil.   There are chocolate advent calendars, and all sorts of goodies.  Go to Ethical Superstore
