Palm Oil production, peatlands & CO2 Emissions (video)

This video tells the story how peatlands are drained and turned into oil palm plantations in Southeast Asia. Palm oil is used in many products, from shampoo to cookies. But their production causes peatland draining, peat fires, and the loss of habitats for many endangered species, such as the Orangutan and Sumatran Rhino.
