WHAT'S GOOD ABOUT SANTA CRUZ ORGANICS:
They’re organic: Organics have numerous benefits from better taste, to zero pesticides, to sustainable farming methods, to cleaner soil, to water preservation and more.
They recycle: Santa Cruz recently revamped their recycling efforts which are now new and improved. They offer reduced packaging, recyclable packaging, and have received the WRAP Award (Waste Reduction Awards Program) for the past seven years. In 2006 the company achieved a remarkable 96% recycling rate for production.
They offset: Santa Cruz Organics purchases renewable energy which offset 100% of the energy used to produce Santa Cruz Organic brand products. This new strategy prevents more than two million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions from being released into the atmosphere every year.
They're a green power member: Santa Cruz Organic participates in the (EPA) Green Power Partnership. This is a voluntary eco program for companies that support clean and renewable energy technology.
They’re Fair Trade: Santa Cruz offers tea-juice blends that are Fair Trade.
They’re healthy: Santa Cruz Organics offer products free from pesticides, hydrogenated oils, added sugars, artificial ingredients, high fructose corn syrup and other icky stuff.
They’re family friendly: Organic companies are no good to the average consumer, if the average consumer can't afford their products. Santa Cruz products are usually reasonably priced, and often are featured in sales at local grocers. They offer coupons and have been featured in Mambo Sprouts.
