You may think your family’s food shopping decisions don’t have much of an impact. But when it comes to the positive impact of choosing organic dairy products, think again! Choosing organic means saying no to synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and drugs – especially antibiotics. And when you combine the impact of your organic ice cream with the organic yogurt used at your favorite diner, and the milk boxes in your child’s school lunch program, the use of organic dairy drastically reduces the amount of chemicals on our farms, and in our foods. Join us to explore a new tool for calculating the positive impacts of choosing organic dairy. And, learn how you can use the tool to advocate for changes to school lunch and other programs in your area.

Speakers:

Jessica Shade, Ph.D., Director of Science Programs | The Organic Center Megan DeBates, Vice President of Government Affairs | Organic Trade Association Judi Shils, Founder & Executive Director | Turning Green & Conscious Kitchen Brand Ambassadors from Organic Valley & Stonyfield Organic
