Tim Hortons buys large amounts of palm oil from suppliers located in Indonesia, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea. The problem? In order to make palm oil in these areas, mass deforestation must occur, which is ruining the habitat of endangered animals like Sumatran tigers and orangutans.
Other companies, include Safeway, Nestle, and Kellogg's, also use palm oil. However, they source their palm oil from sustainable farms that don't threaten animals. By buying palm oil from unsustainable farms, Tim Hortons is sending the message that forests and animals don't matter.
