Join our Eatery Facebook Jams
Why eatery Facebook jams?
The palm oil industry is one of the major causes of haze.
Haze-free palm oil prevents haze and switching is easy.
Most Singaporean eateries are unknowingly using haze causing palm oil.
What it is
Many eateries in Singapore use unsustainable palm oil. What’s more, most eateries are unaware their cooking oil may be causing the haze. That’s why PM Haze #GoHazeFree campaign aims to reach out and encourage Singaporean eateries to switch to haze-free cooking oil.
However, in our busy Singaporean society, not everyone has the capacity to attend our eatery outreach events. Thus we created the Facebook jam events to allow everyone to lend a hand. Our Facebook outreach consists of sending Facebook messages to eateries to ask them about the cooking oil they use and encouraging them to consider switching to haze-free palm oil. This jams also allow us to enjoy the company of other haze fighters and motivate each other. What’s more, it is a great occasion to have a haze free meal together!

You can also choose to do Facebook outreach on your own. In that case, ignore the next step (eateries list) and contact the eateries you want 😀
Reaching out to eateries may be long and difficult.
You will need Thick Skin and Strong Heart!
Contact them by customizing this template. The main objective is to identify what kind of oil they are using.
Hi! I’m [your name].
I’m a huge fan of [eatery name], I eat there at least once a week!
I believe in making a positive impact in the world by choosing a place with good quality ingredients and low environment impact.
I recently heard that palm oil is widely used as cooking oil and if the palm oil is not certified sustainable, it could cause haze. May I know if your cooking oil contain palm oil/palm olein and whether they are certified sustainable?
Respond to the eateries
When the eateries reply (if they do), you can use the following templates.
“We are using [not palm] oil (not palm)”
Thank you for letting me know, I’m looking forward to eat at your place!
“We use vegetable oil”
Hi! Thank you for your fast reply 😀
“Vegetable oil” is a generic term used to refer to palm oil or a blend of different oils. Could you please let me know what are the ingredients of your vegetable oil?
