Eight palm oil-free Easter egg picks for 2021


Lindt Gold Bunny Milk Chocolate EggEco-Eggs Report from Uswitch finds 73% of the UK’s top-selling Easter eggs still contain palm oil

The Eco-Eggs Report analyses the environmental impact of the UK’s 30 top-selling chocolate Easter eggs, using average price, weight, packaging, CO2 emissions, water usage and ingredients to reveal the UK’s most ethical eggs to buy this Easter, with each one able to achieve a top score of 120.

Of the 30 best-selling Easter eggs, 22 listed palm oil as one of the ingredients, including household brands such as Cadbury, Lindt and Nestle. The report found that almost three-quarters (73%) of best-selling Easter eggs still contain palm oil as a main ingredient.

The farming of oil palm trees is extremely bad for the environment as it destroys plants, wildlife and reduces biodiversity as areas are cleared to make way for the crops. Environmental charity Greenpeace have been campaigning for over ten years to raise awareness around the problematic nature of palm oil production.
