Sustainable Sweets

This Halloween (and every day) look for candy made with certified sustainable palm oil. Palm oil plantations are wiping out animal habitats, and from snacks to soap, palm oil is the most widely consumed vegetable oil on the planet. Check out Cheyenne Mountain Zoo's palm-oil friendly candy guide for some sustainably sweet treats for your tricksters! Learn more about the palm oil crisis and how to shop responsibly.
