A new investigation reveals that the world’s biggest brands are responsible for destroying an area of rainforest almost twice the size of Singapore in less than three years.

Why? Because these Big Brands use palm oil in a host of food and personal care products, including frozen pizzas, ice cream, cookies, chocolates, soaps, candles, makeup and detergents.
