Guest article educates readers on Malaysian palm oil’s land use

Thousands of people read A Happy Hippy Mom’s blog, Facebook page and Twitter feed to get her inspiring advice for pure, simple living. She also loves to give other parents opportunities to share their tips. Dad and sustainable chef Gerard Viverito wrote this Earth Day article to teach readers about sustainable food products in the supermarket.  

“Genetically modified crops such as corn, soy and canola require as much as 10 times more land than palm oil. As our world population increases, the edible oil demand could easily lead to more deforestation. Thankfully, a large percentage of the nutritious palm oil in our U.S. food supply comes from Malaysia, where it is certified as sustainably produced,” he wrote.
