Rejected petition Stop the use of Palm oil

Palm oil is in more than 50% of everything we use. It is destroying the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra. Because it's destroying the rainforests the animals that live there are decreasing in population. The animals that live on the two islands are the Orangutang, tiger, elephant and rhino

This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s not clear what the petition is asking the UK Government or Parliament to do.

We can't accept your petition in its current form as it does not call for a clear action from the UK Government and Parliament. You could start a petition calling on Parliament to legislate to make the sale of products containing palm oil to be illegal in the UK.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
