Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce
The produce ranking was developed by analysts at the not-for-profit Environmental Working Group (EWG) based on the results of nearly 43,000 tests for pesticides on produce collected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration between 2000 and 2004. A detailed description of the criteria used in developing the rankings is available as well as a full list of fresh fruits and vegetables that have been tested (see below). EWG is a not-for-profit environmental research organization dedicated to improving public health and protecting the environment by reducing pollution in air, water and food.

Slow Food
Slow Food is a non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world. Today, we have over 85,000 members in 132 countries.

25 Healthy, Delicious Years! Thanks to our yogurt lovers, we’ve been making healthy, delicious organic yogurts and caring for the earth for 25 years! To help reduce global warming, we offset all of the C02 emissions from our facility energy use. We also started a nonprofit called “Climate Counts” which shows people how they can help fight climate change by the way they shop and invest. With a solar array on the roof of our Yogurt Works, we generate some of the clean renewable energy we use to make our yogurt. Through reuse and recycling, we prevent hundreds of tons of waste from reaching landfills and incinerators each year. And we give 10% of our profits to efforts that help protect and restore the earth.
