Palm Oil Free Day is a continuation of the successful campaign "The day when we tell the companies we don't want their products with palm oil", which took place a year ago - on February 1, 2016. This day is a reminder of what happened and what needs to be done. It is a reminder of our global responsibility. Try one palm oil free day, or even two or three, or stop using palm oil forever.

Last year's summary
A lot has happened in the past year, and our Czech effort has become an example for other countries. We managed to bring the issue of palm oil to minds of two-thirds of the Czechs. A number of companies have phased out the palm oil use completely from their products, while others have been looking for alternatives. Not just the producers but the restaurants, schools, and zoos have also completely eliminated palm oil and its derivates. Moreover, they joined in to inform their customers about this pressing issue. A significant part of the Czech people is now avoiding the products with palm oil.
Palm Oil Free Day is mainly a reminder of what has been going on and what needs to be done. It is a reminder of our global responsibility. It is up to each of us to proactively influence what is happening in the places of palm oil production. And it is our hope that if we suggest you to try spending one day (or maybe two, three, five or even other every day) without palm oil, you will go for it. Because by doing so, both your own health and the nature will benefit from your actions and you will finally realize that it also saves you money as you won't need so many useless products containing palm oil.
