Since the first “National day of observance of environmental problems” in 1970, Americans have gathered on Earth Day to raise awareness of issues affecting the environment. And more than thirty years later, Earth Day has truly become a global phenomenon, uniting hundreds of millions of people in over 175 countries.
As a company with an international heritage and a commitment to the environment, “Every day is Earth Day at Voskos Greek Yogurt,” says Nikko Generales B.S., a writer for the Voskos Greek Yogurt What’s Fresh blog. “Voskos Greek Yogurt offers organic flavors in plain, Greek honey, and vanilla bean. And they make all of their yogurt flavors naturally, with no artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors or preservatives,” says Generales. “Voskos products are also free of gluten, rBST, rBGH, and GMOs.”
There are several things Voskos encourages its customers to do for the environment in honor of Earth Day:
1. Buy locally-grown and sustainable products whenever possible.
“Read the labels on your produce,” says Generales. “If you live in the United States and your plums came from Peru, imagine how much fuel was burned to get that fruit into your local produce department. Shopping locally means less fuel consumption and less pollution.”
2. Buy organic products whenever possible.
While there are a number of different “organic” certification standards, generally “organic” produce is grown without pesticides and other chemicals. “Pesticides, of course, are meant to kill insects,” notes Generales. “So it’s no surprise that they can kill beneficial insects like honeybees and ladybugs along with unwanted pests. And many chemical pesticides contain neurotoxins that can be dangerous (or even deadly) to the people who have to handle them.”
3. Buy products in recyclable packaging and recycle when finished.
“Recycling is a crucial step you can take to help preserve the environment. That’s why all of Voskos yogurt cups are recyclable-so you can still enjoy a tasty and healthy cup of yogurt while being environmentally conscious,” says Generales.
Voskos Greek Yogurt has been recognized in awards contests presented by Fitness magazine, Women’s Health, Vegetarian Times, Natural Solutions, Self Magazine and Cooking Light magazine.
