Is there such thing as "sustainable palm oil"? I see badges stamped to food packaging a lot but now Iceland's movement has made me question how sustainable it really is...

Iceland is removing palm oil from their own-brand food products which is awesome for forests and our furry friends, shame about the advert being banned in the UK for being "too political" what a joke. Here's a link and a video.

That's so good. I can't understand how the UK can ban it. I take it Iceland is a brand of food in the UK, and not a country/island in the North Atlantic.

Yeah I'm not sure how it's been labelled as "political" probably just any excuse to not broadcast it. Oh right I forgot that Iceland were only national but yes they're just a supermarket. :)

Interesting, I came across this article this morning on BBC saying that despite the pledge, they still have it in their products.

Seems I can't link to it, so if you want to go to BBC and append this to the end of the URL: /news/uk-46969920
