There is currently a cruel trade using pigtailed macaques monkeys, which are abused and chained up, to climb trees to collect the coconuts which are in the coconut milks and oils that we buy.

The right and kind way of using hydraulic lifts on tractors to collect the coconuts and NOT using monkeys is a superior method anyway – because the monkeys cannot distinguish the ripened coconuts from the unripened ones and the coconuts become bruised when dropped on the ground.

Simply by clicking on the above url link that takes you to a page where you add your full name and email. This automatically sends a message to the main businesses employing enslaved monkeys to pick our coconuts (apparently usually Thailand).

I never knew that these highly intelligent, beautiful, social creatures were used this way – stolen as babies, chained up and imprisoned in cramped cages, sometimes having their teeth removed. They live without others of their kind and some literally go insane. It is downright cruel and shouldn’t be happening.

Poor little creature, you can see his/her pain and high intelligence, just like a little person.

Major Retailers Drop Thai Coconut Brands After PETA Monkey-Abuse ExposΓ©

Help Monkeys

Please make sure that your coconut products don’t come from suppliers that use monkey labour. Avoid the brands Aroy-D and Chaokoh and all coconut products from Thailand. In general, coconut products originating in Brazil, Colombia, Hawaii, India, and the Philippines are supplied by companies that don’t use monkey labour.

Aroy-D and Chaokoh are still exploiting monkeys. Send a message urging them to stop supporting this cruel industry.

I signed the petition and took note of the brands NOT to buy, that support using these monkeys this way. Please help too, it does make a difference.

I haven’t been online for a few days because I’m recuperating from exhaustion. Simply visiting the vet and standing just a little too long is worsening the condition of my cracked spine. I will be around soon. Love to you and keep safe xox

I used to enjoy long walks, bodybuilding, going out, however, since my injury my mobility is seriously impaired, so I'm more of a home-body now. I'm interested in meeting other indie / pro writers, so do say 'Hello' ! :)

    Thank you so much for this. I can barely stand to watch anything that shows animal cruelty even to expose it. So this was hard to look at but I wanted to say I just finished a box of coconut water that came from Thailand. Just yesterday. And my colleagues and I were talking about how fresh and delicious it tasted. I had no idea this was going on. A lot of us are complicit in cruel practices or unethical practices without realising it. At least now we know to ask how the coconuts were harvested. This means suppliers and manufacturers should supply this information on labels.

    • Hello Sabiscuit

      I know…me too, can’t stand seeing those photos or hear about any animal abuse, or what abuse is being done to our planet – or the vulnerable. I make myself read to be informed and see if I can do anything on my miniscule scale. It’s great that people like ourselves are doing our little bit πŸ™‚ As you say, we don’t even realise some of the cruelty we’re unknowingly complicit in. That would be a good thing, adding this info on their labels, about the coconuts being ethically sourced. xo

        The next time I see a box of coconut water, I’ll send a text to the company and ask them about it. Thank you again for this heads up. Best of luck to you and have a lovely weekend.

      • That sounds like a good idea. Because the more us individuals complain the more they have to listen – and of course, we’ll be showing them with our spending power!

        I already buy ‘palm oil free’ peanut butter and try to avoid palm oil.

        Thank you my friend, you too, all the best and love to you and yours.
