Did you know? Candy isn’t so dandy for wildlife. Many candy brands contain palm oil that, when not harvested sustainably, becomes harmful to animal habitats like the rainforests of Malaysia where siamangs and tigers dwell. Choose your Halloween candy from the list of brands that use sustainable palm oil practices. The 2021 Halloween candy-buying guide can be found here. Our tiger and siamang families thank you on behalf of their cousins in the wild!
