No Palm oil
In May 2014 Fire-Up International was the first firelighters producer which declared that no palm oil is processed in Fire-Up firelighters.
For large-scale oil palm cultivation precious tropical rain forests are destroyed. Palm oil is used in many different products. Due to the explosive demand rainforests are cut down for palm oil plantations.
Fire-Up International BV supports the principles of sustainability. Not because sustainability has become a hype, but because it became a habit. The decision not to use palm oil in our products is therefore a logical one. In our business we not only consider economic but also ecological aspects.
