The USDA’s Senseless Obstacles To A More Humane ‘Organic’

Every day, millions of Americans visit their grocery stores, relying on a range of food labels – some more meaningful than others – to help them make healthy, humane, and cost-efficient purchases. One of these labels is “USDA Organic,” a certification that presumably represents humane farm animal welfare standards. But sadly, that assumption is untrue, and has been for years. What’s even more reprehensible is that the federal agency directly responsible for ensuring that farmed food products are truthfully labeled – the USDA – is now acting in direct opposition to that mission. Origins of the USDA “Organic” Label The USDA began regulating organic agriculture in 2000 with the creation of the National Organic Program. For years, the ASPCA and other animal welfare organizations have pushed to include meaningful animal welfare standards in the definition of organic – including minimum indoor and outdoor space requirements for chickens, required enrichment for certain species, and a prohibition on certain kinds of painful physical alterations like cattle tail docking. In January 2017, we celebrated when the USDA National Organic Program announced it would adopt a comprehensive set of federal regulations governing the treatment of animals on USDA Organic-certified farms, based on the recommendation of the National Organics Standards Board. This decision was influenced by tens of thousands of supportive comments from consumers, farmers, companies and public interest groups, all submitted during an official open comment period. The regulations were set to go into effect in March. Enter Politics When the new Administration postponed implementation of the organics rule to May, one could argue this was the consequence of a government in transition, including the late appointment of Sonny Perdue as Secretary of Agriculture.

Why Small-Scale Farming Is Our Best Hope For Restoring Rural America (And Combatting Climate Change)

Boarded-up business districts. Abandoned warehouses. Barns and homes covered by tarps slowly collapsing into the earth. It was startling how often this scene repeated as I drove through the rural areas of the Midwest, South, and West on the road trip that resulted in the book The Revolution Where You Live. Many of these are the same areas that famously voted for a loudmouth New Yorker. For some, he better represented conservative, rural values than Hillary Clinton did. These devastated regions, where opioid addiction is at epidemic levels, are places that ran out of hope. The cynical and bankrupt answers offered up by the 45th president will not bring prosperity to these regions. But neither would the corporate-friendly policies of a President Hillary Clinton and others in her wing of the Democratic Party […]

Wastewater Treatment: An Undervalued Driver Of Sustainability

Wastewater is no longer waste as innovation and holistic thinking enables water reuse and resource recovery. This piece is co-written by Janet Egli, Global Service Line Leader, Ramboll Water This year UN World Water Day focused on treating, reducing and reusing wastewater. This focus makes very good sense. 80 percent of wastewater generated by society flows back into the ecosystem without being treated or reused, and wastewater treatment is still considered a burden almost everywhere on the entire globe. It doesn’t have to be this way though. Water and wastewater treatment plants have become more efficient and innovative, improving their processes and maximising output use by recovering energy and nutrients, recuperating organic matter and producing clean, reusable water – that is sometimes even drinkable – instead of simply regarding it as waste. These plants are also becoming multifunctional, providing an integrated treatment approach that not only cleans wastewater but also recovers its resources. A good business case Investing more time and money in improving waste water treatment can be a major driver of sustainability on a global scale and therefore an important step in reaching the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) […]
