You can help the Orangutans!

By Amy Lawrenson


I am a big fan of Orangutans (so much so that I drag my boyfriend to Colchester Zoo as often as I can to see their resident Orangutans!) – did you know that we share 97 per cent of our DNA with the furry, ginger fellows? As a redhead, I probably hit 98 per cent!

While the Orangutans in the zoo are safe and well, the ones in the wild are threatened with extinction. Forests in South East Asia, in which these primates (and many other animals) live, are being destroyed to support the palm oil industry – an ingredient which is used in many of our day-to-day food, home and lifestyle products.


But this month, thanks to Trilogy, you can do something to help. Throughout November the organic skincare brand is supporting The Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, who rescue and rehabilitate wild Orangutans. All you need to do is purchase one of Trilogy’s Limited Edition Organic Rosehip Oil, and $1 of the £15.61 price will go towards the cause.

The campaign is ongoing, so we will keep you updated on future fundraising schemes. In the meantime, if you want to read more about The Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, click here.
