Did you know that the ice cream your eating contains Palm Oil?
So how are they forced into labor?
Its, O.K to eat though. Palm Oil is a type of vegetable oil. It's how children are forced into child labor to make it that's terrible.
So what can we do?
Kids are forced to work for really really long hours because they need the money to help their family. They do not get a fair pay too. Palm Oil is used in our everyday life. It's used in ice cream, soap, chocolate, most bread, biodiesel, and much more! A lot of the time, kids are forced to work in harsh conditions and sometimes dangerous conditions!
Everyone has a voice, so that means you can speak your mind through protests. You can make other people aware of the issue. You cant really not use Palm Oil because it is so common in our lives, but if you let people know the issue, other people will want to help. Using Palm Oil doesn't just hurt kids, it hurts the environment too. Orangutans suffer because their homes are being destroyed. Say... Do you want to come to the protest in front of the ice cream shop tomorrow?
Wow. Today was a great day. Tomorrow i'm going to make a difference in this world.
