What’s in your milk?

by Bea James, senior manager of organic, natural and sustainable programs
Friday, March 21, 2014

OK, before you read this you should know I’ve researched this topic since 1997 and believe truth in labeling is one of the most important issues for consumers. People can choose the products they want, however they should know what they’re buying. It’s been my experience that companies not using controversial ingredients will tell you, usually right on the package (i.e. GMO free), while companies using controversial ingredients most likely won’t tell you.

St. Patrick's Day is a celebration of everything Irish… from everyone wearing green and shamrocks to Irish beers and whiskeys. With more than 36 million Americans claiming Irish descent, St. Patrick’s Day could almost become a national holiday!

Of course the ultimate way to celebrate the day would be to visit the Emerald Isle itself but if that isn’t in the budget, don’t despair; there are plenty of ways to commemorate the day!
