Hello my name is Ted and I am the creator of tedgetarianism. Tedgetarian is a type of diet that tries to prevent the extinction of orangutans. Palm oil is the main focus of tedgetarian as it is the main reason orangutans are becoming extinct. If you are tedgetarian you choose to avoid non sustainable palm oil.
Palm oil farmers are deforesting the orangutans’ habitats and food so they can put the palm oil plantation there. With the orangutans’ food gone, all the orangutans have to do is starve to death, that is, if they survive the 80-150 m fall from their home.
