Tell the USDA and NOSB: We Need Real Organics!

Overview
Consumers looking for clean, healthy food have for years turned to foods with the USDA’s organic seal. This seal is understood to mean that the food has been grown in accordance with organic principles—most importantly, that the farming practices promote healthy soil, which in turn produces healthy food. Unfortunately, corporate influence has infected the USDA’s organic program to such an extent that it can be difficult to trust the organic seal. Until the USDA cleans up its act, consumers may need to start looking to alternatives, such as the Real Organic Project. Write to the USDA and the NOSB, urging them to strengthen organic standards so that CAFO-raised eggs and milk, and hyrdoponic produce, cannot carry the organic seal.
Target
Congress, USDA
Goal
Strengthen organic standards.

    • If it’s fda or usda approved steer clear of it as it it not true organic. This goes for all meats, chicken, fish, veggies and dairy. They are nothing more than paid off shills who could care less about the health and well being of the consumer. Shop carefully and make informed wise choices.

    • I am from Canada but your country drop down window does not have Canada option but yet the Postal Field exists. I had to say I was from N. Dakota, a neighbouring state. Could you please fix that option so we can support these great causes? Thank you.

"It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there will be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result."
- Mahatma Gandhi
