I went to a symposium on orangutans* tonight, and now I'm worried about the use of unsustainable palm oil in 1 out of every 10 of the groceries I buy.

However, I got an awesome, laminated, actual handprint of an orangutan!

So, you know, yin and yang.

For more on the orangutans I saw at the Brookfield Zoo (including video of the new baby, born October 6th!!), go here.

For a list of orangutan-friendly consumer choices, go here.

*Did you know that "orangutan" is pronounced "O-RANG-OO-TAN?" Because, you know, you
pronounce it like it's spelled. I know, crazy concept.
