For those who might not have heard - Iceland (the frozen groceries shop not the country :lol: ) asked Greenpeace to produce their Christmas add this year.

Greenpeace has produced an animated ad explaining the dangers of palm oil on Orang-Utans.

The problem is that in the UK political organisations are not allowed to have ads (except under the rules about elections) and so the Christmas ad is 'not allowed' due to who wrote it.

But these rules only stop the ad being shown on TV, so it's gone a bit viral as a banned ad.


Personally: We have been asking manufacturers about the source of palm oil for over a decade - the phone call normally goes - is your palm oil rainforest sustainable? Ug?

No one ever gave us a satisfactory answer.
