Hidden Costs of Palm Oil / poster

Hidden Costs of Palm Oil

The popularity of palm oil as an edible oil has increased dramatically in the recent decade. Unfortunately, the ubiquitous oil, found in everything from ice cream to detergent is also responsible for the clearing of forests which in turn increases climate change.

The Hidden Costs of Palm Oil is an infographic poster created to inform, educate and bring awareness to the environmental issues involved in the palm oil production process. It goes through the palm oil production process and depicts the ecological and ethical consequences of each action. The illustrative quality of the poster is meant to simplify the complex and relevant issue.
