I rescue Daddy Long Legs who are in danger of being washed down the drain, and I feel guilty using Ant Rid.
So when I read on a box of Country Life soap:-
“This product contains NO PALM OIL. Together Country Life and the Melbourne Zoo are committed to wildlife conservation and the use of environmentally sustainable raw materials.”,
I bought it, happy in the knowledge I was helping the orangutans. But while soaping up I began to wonder what the soap did contain: peanut oil… linseed oil… Valvoline? No, apparently it’s sodium tallowate made from, among other things, cattle fat.
So “environmentally sustainable raw materials” are cows.
