That’s how much organic fruit we buy for our yogurts each year. And that’s how we’re able to offer organic yogurts in a bunch of different flavors—all made without the use of toxic persistent pesticides.
The fruits we buy include apples, strawberries and peaches. When grown conventionally, these three are among the 12 fruits and veggies most contaminated with pesticide residue (see EWG’s “Dirty Dozen”). So choosing organic when you eat these fruits in particular—whether they’re whole or mixed into yogurt or some other food—may be an especially healthy choice.
The organic fruit we buy also means literally tons of toxic persistent pesticides kept off of farms and orchards—that’s tons of toxic persistent pesticides kept from our soil, air and drinking water. That means safer work conditions for farmers, farm workers and farm families, and a safer planet for everyone.
We’ve made some great, short videos about our organic fruit. Check out:
