Sign the Petition! Tell Ben & Jerry’s to go organic!

 

Wow. Ten of 11 samples of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream tested positive for glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s dangerous Roundup herbicide.

The ice cream brand claims its social mission “seeks to meet human needs and eliminate the injustices in our local, national and international communities,” and that its focus is “on children and families, the environment and sustainable agriculture on family farms.”

TAKE ACTION: Tell Ben & Jerry’s CEO Jostein Solheim (aka Scooper Man): Roundup-Ready Ice Cream is neither ‘natural’ nor ‘socially responsible.’ Go 100% Organic! Ben & Jerry’s has done an excellent job of convincing consumers that the company cares about progressive issues. But behind the iconic ice cream brand’s greenwashed façade is an unfortunate truth: The company relies on a #dirtydairy industry that produces contaminated food, poisons Vermont’s waterways, abuses animals, exploits workers, bankrupts farmers and contributes to climate change.. Unless Ben & Jerry’s goes organic, its practices are responsible for:

•    Running Vermont family farms out of business.
•   Polluting Vermont’s waterways.
•    Abusing animals.
•    Exploiting farmworkers.
•    Contributing to climate change.
•    Putting human health at risk.

In addition to the above problems, pesticides like Roundup, atrazine and metolachlor—all carcinogens and endocrine disruptors—have devastating effects on human health. And they’re in Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. It’s time for Ben & Jerry’s to come clean. The only way to do that is to transition to a 100% organic supply chain.

TAKE ACTION: Tell Ben & Jerry’s CEO Jostein Solheim (aka Scooper Man): Roundup-Ready Ice Cream is neither ‘natural’ nor ‘socially responsible.’ Go 100% Organic!
