Save Organic Standards!

You’d think an organization called the Organic Trade Association (OTA) would be keen on protecting organic standards.

But it was the OTA that played a key role in pressuring the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to weaken the standards for organic. Again.

The National Organic Standards Board (NOSB)—those are the folks who get to decide what’s allowed in organics, and what isn’t—recently changed the rules. The upshot? The list of non-organic and synthetic materials allowed in organic is likely to get longer and longer.

The NOSB didn’t ask for our opinion before it made its rule change. But we plan to share it. In person. At the next NOSB meeting, April 29 – May 2, in San Antonio, Texas. We’ll also deliver a petition to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack asking him to reverse this disastrous new rule. Can you sign on? Thanks!

TAKE ACTION: Tell USDA Secretary Vilsack: Save organic standards! Reverse the NOSB’s new rule that weakens organic standards.
