Thanks to Julia Felice and Amber Gilewski for inspiring me to finally, finally boycott palm oil. If you’re vegan and you’re not yet avoiding it, now is a good time to start. If you don’t know why, please read this factsheet from Rainforest Action Network.
Harvest Award makes a buttery corn oil spread that’s vegan and palm-oil free, that we could use as an alternative to Earth Balance. But it’s not available yet in Ithaca – we have to ask GreenStar Natural Foods Market and other shops to carry it.
If you have ideas for other buttery spread alternatives, please post a comment – thanks!
