Yay for the Orange people! :D

Happy news people! Very happy news! I don't know how many of you are aware of the tussle that was underway between Nestle and various environmental groups over the use of palm oil in their Kit-Kat Brand. The oil used came from palm trees that were planted in place of the natural Rainforests of Indonesia. This meant that the already dwindling Orangutan population in those places would be further affected adversely. Apparently, Nestle has agreed to work towards boycotting all oil companies that indulge in deforestation.

And why this sudden change of heart, you wonder? Hmmmm.... Maybe this video link can provide an answer to that!

If only we could have Unilever do the same! It would mean a world of difference for the better for the countless animals still stuck in the testing labs! It's really sad that such a huge multi-billion dollar company still follows such ridiculously arcane methods of product testing that isn't even that accurate! I hope they change their stance soon enough... I so very fervently do!

Ah well... One can always hope for the best, right?
