Burger King Greases Palms With Oil From Company That Kills Fewer Trees

Kings — especially ones with creepy face masks — are there to serve their subjects, so Burger King responded to complaints from critics by switching its source for palm oil in which to cook its delicacies. Led by Greenpeace, environmentalists had harangued the company from buying from a subsidiary of Sinar Mas, Indonesian outfit accused of deforestation.

Burger King announced the change late last week on its Facebook page. Nestle also abandoned the subsidiary within the past year, GreenBiz reports.

Sorry, Whopper fans. You’ll no longer get the sweet taste of forest destruction with your meal.
