This year, PM Haze brought the International Day of Forests celebration to Singapore for the first time and rallied the public to show their love for forests by having a meal at local eateries that use sustainable palm oil.
Helping small holders adopt sustainable production practices will not just improve their livelihoods, but also lead to more sustainable outcomes.
You can show your love to forests by sharing a picture of you and your friends at the eatery using #LoveForest #GoHazeFree #SustainablePalmOil.
Encouraging progress towards sustainability in the palm oil sector made by transnational and Singaporean businesses.

Transboundary haze has contributed to the region’s air pollution is a direct result of deforestation techniques using fire for land clearing. Peatlands are being cleared for palm oil production and for timber used in paper manufacture. When dried out, peatlands release stored CO2 and become highly flammable.
After knowing that palm oil used in the making of conventional soap contributes to deforestation and haze in Singapore, Rough Beauty made an immediate switch to sustainable palm oil.
