Not all coconut products are made the same way. In fact, some producers based in Thailand force monkeys to pick coconuts and keep them chained and confined to cages for extended periods of time. These naturally social primates are kept in isolation from each other and denied the freedom to move around. However, it’s easy to avoid products that are produced using these cruel methods, whether you’re looking for coconut milk, cream, water, oil, or any other coconut-based vegan products. The products below are made by companies that don’t use monkey labor to harvest coconuts.

Let your local grocery stores know that animal exploitation is never OK by asking them to stop stocking coconut products that hurt monkeys:
