Really Natural: Organic Labeling Evolves to Meet Challenges Organic shoppers may soon see additional labeling on produce. More than a dozen farmers and scientists from around the country met to create the standards for an additional organic certification pilot program called the Real Organic Project (ROP), which they plan to initially introduce at 20 to 60 farms. Under the current U.S. Department of Agriculture program, the organic label means that produce has been grown without synthetic substances or genetic engineering; it doesn’t specify whether produce was grown in water or soil, which the new labeling would address.

Plastic Pushback: Countries Ban Single-Use Plastics Bans on plastic consumption have been increasing globally for the last two years. Single-use plastics will be officially banned in the Bahamas by 2020, including plastic bags collected at the point of sale, straws, Styrofoam food containers and plastic utensils. Also, the release of balloons in the air will be illegal. Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Antigua and Barbuda have already banned single-use plastic products. In Kenya it’s illegal to produce, sell or use plastic bags. Haiti has banned plastic bags and Styrofoam products. Belize moved to ban single-use plastics by April 2019. The UK has outlined a plan to eradicate plastic use completely by 2042. The Clean Seas Campaign, launched in 2017 by the United Nations

Environment Programme, aims to increase global public and corporate awareness of the critical need to reduce marine litter.
