Rejected petition Don't allow the use of Palm Oil in the new £20 note

The bank of England recently released a document which said that they could use palm oil in the £20 note, which is due to be introduced in 2020. Palm Oil is responsible for 8% of global deforestation. The use of Palm Oil in the new £20 note would be detrimental to the environment.
