It was early 2016 when my Mum informed me about this serious issue. I was eating a cookie and I asked what the ingredients were. For some reason the word palm oil spiraled through my mind when she said it. I was unaware of what palm oil was and asked my mum ‘what is palm oil?’ and she said ‘palm oil is actually destroying the lives of orangutans.’ She needed to say no more as I had orangutans as #3 on my favorite animals list. I immediately researched this problem and gave myself a ban to eating palm oil products. I thought up the name of tedgetarian personally and decided it was a good catchy name.
