Nearly 90,000 acres of Vermont’s farmland is planted in GMO crops—crops that feed the dairy cows that supply milk and cream to Ben & Jerry’s. Those crops are heavily sprayed with Roundup, atrazine, metolachlor and other poisons.
That makes Ben & Jerry’s one of the largest polluters of Vermont’s waterways. The company also sources cream from factory farm dairies in western states.
It’s time for Ben & Jerry’s to live up to its marketing claims by promising to transition to 100% organic. An organic Ben & Jerry’s supply chain would be better for the environment, better for human and dairy cow health, better for farmers and better for farmworkers.
Consumers are key to getting Ben & Jerry’s to go organic. Sign up here for more information on how to become part of the Consumer Revolution!
