Unless you make your own biscuits (cookies if you’re American), most people buy them in shops. The problem is that most brands (especially the vegan ones) contain palm oil, which is harming the habitats of orangutans and other endangered creatures. There is no such thing as sustainable palm oil. Instead, try some of these palm-oil-free biscuit brands instead. Recycle any plastic packaging with household recycling or at supermarket bag bins.
Never give birds leftover cookies (or dry crackers, stale or mouldy bread), as they can choke. Never give any ‘fatty cookies’ to birds, as this can affect insulation/waterproofing of feathers.
Mr Organic Multi-Grain Biscuits are made from healthy ingredients, recycle the plastic packaging in household recycling or in supermarket bag bins. Made with chia and flax seeds, these are crunchy and baked to perfection. Also in orange cocoa and cocoa flavours.
Seggiano offers organic wholegrain biscuits from Italy, which are palm-oil-free. These are minimally sweetened and yeast-free, made with sunflower oil and stone-pressed organic kamut.
Best to Make Your Own Cookies!
As nearly all biscuits on the market are made with palm oil, it’s best to make your own. Try these Orange Cranberry Cardamom Oatmeal Cookies (Full of Plants) that are naturally sweetened and gluten-free. Made with orange, cranberry, cinnamon, cardamom and chocolate – like Christmas in a cookie!
