Save Gutan

Aware Environmental has kicked off its “Save Gutan” campaign this week launching the website to raise knowledge on the palm oil issue. People can help save Gutan in three ways : Learn, Act and Give.

Aware Environmental, who manufactures Orange Power and Aware laundry products, has pledged 10c per unit sold between 19th August to 19th September 2014 which will be donated to three orangutan charities, BOS Australia, TOP and DeforestACTION.
