Deforestation Nutella style

Nutella e desmatamento

There is basic deforestation and Nutella deforestation. According to the NGO Rain Forest, they are destroying the natural habitat of our orangutan cousin to produce the famous delicacy and other foods. Palm oil extracted from the fruit of a palm tree, native to the Indonesian and Malaysian forests, is the ingredient responsible for its creaminess.

Let’s control our appetite.
