Fungability and palm oil

Postby jamesndawson » Fri Dec 23, 2016 10:02 pm

What's your opinion on the ethics of buying products containing palm oil.
Is the argument against buying palm oil based on "fungability" sound? I've listened to Unnatural Vegan's video and it's still very vague to me, but I don't have a head for these types of things.
Has her and similar arguments been critiqued on a technical level be vegans versed in economics?
I'm trying to avoid palm oil, but it's in my Silk creamer, and I'm not strong enough to give that up. I've got to have it in my coffee. Other brands are too expensive and don't seem to taste quite as good.
