An Orangutan-Friendly Easter

Is your Easter chocolate bunny made by Lindt or by See’s? Even innocent chocolate Easter bunnies can contain destructive unsustainable palm oil.  Shopping for palm-oil free Easter candy can be difficult, especially with confusing labels, but the Orangutan Gang has some shopping aids so you can help keep the rainforest safe and enjoy guilt-free candy this Easter.

Palm-oil free brands generally include Nestle, Ghirardelli, Lindt, and Cadbury. If you’re looking for more specific information, you can try downloading the free PalmSmart app and check for palm oil with the scan of a barcode. With a database of over 1,000 products and growing, PalmSmart is one of the most effective scanners online. And if this app fails you, just check the Orangutan Project Easter candy guide to inform you of palm oil containing brands and products. Thanks for saving the rainforest!
