Change-maker: Emma Thompson

Not only is she an outstanding actress, she's also working on behalf of those who have no voice of their own - those gorgeous fuzzy orange apes many companies seem hellbent on driving to extinction.

As Thompson writes, "For too long, big brands and the palm oil companies they buy from have been getting away with murder – I mean that quite literally. And for too long our response to orangutans has been, ‘ohhh, the poor things’ as we’re shown photographs of them orphaned, thin and at death’s door. But change is possible – we can make it so."

Take a look at this short video she narrated and then sign this petition. If you want to take the palm oil challenge and understand why it's so necessary, head to our Ditch Palm Oil challenge page.
