As consumers, we can fight haze by making informed and responsible purchases.

The haze is caused by toxic smoke from fires raging in South-east Asia’s forests and peatlands, which are cleared for crops such as palm oil and paper trees. In particular, Indonesia and Malaysia produce 85% of the world’s palm oil, which is a key ingredient in many food products and cosmetics. You can make a difference by buying only products that contain sustainably produced palm oil and paper. You can also encourage your friends, colleagues, and favorite dining establishments to do the same.
