“Certified Sustainable” Label = Greenwashing Eco-Fail

Submitted by on Friday, 2 October 2009No Comment

2_mugs53Rodale Daily News reports that the Natioanl Sustainable Agriculture Standards Institute is considering an agri-business label called “Certified Sustainable.” Farms that use pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and even gene modified organisms (GMOs) will be able to use this label! Rodale reports that the planning of a “sustainable” certification standard started in 2007 to address social issues and workers’ rights, and featured strong organic principles, as well. But critics say those aspects have since been de-emphasized to satisfy the chemical-agriculture lobby. What else is new? Eco-Fail!
