The Organic Community Needs to Ban Plastics

Beyond Pesticides writes:

"Plastics are a huge environmental problem, yet organic production and handling continue to exacerbate the problem instead of solving it. There are opportunities for change with different mulching systems, intercropping, and packaging materials. It is time to ensure organic’s commitment to addressing the existential crises associated with a petroleum-based economy and lead the way in combatting the climate crisis by ending plastic use in agricultural production and food packaging."

Tell the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) it must lead in phasing out plastic at all stages of production and handling.
