Happy New Year! I wanted to share with you about The Organic Center’s resolution for a healthier, happier 2010 and hope that you’ll help us spread the organic seeds of change. A leading research institute on the science of organic food and farming, The Organic Center recently launched Mission Organic 2010, an ambitious campaign with an exciting goal: to increase the current market for organic foods from 3 to 10 percent by the end of 2010.
Supporting the Mission Organic 2010, Whole Foods Market has selected The Organic Center as one of three non-profit organizations to be featured in its first ever Facebook application, entitled “This Is My Year To…” By downloading the app at facebook you and your readers can make it a resolution to choose organic and vote for Mission Organic 2010. At the end of January, the non-profit with the most votes receives an additional $10K donation from Whole Foods Market to help fund its vision.
We hope you will share this app with your readers. And to help educate on the benefits of organic foods, we would also like to offer you 50 of The Organic Center’s Organic Essentials Pocket Guides, a handy tool showing the most important fruits and vegetable to choose organic. Here is a link to download an electronic version:
Thank you for supporting healthy living for the planet and its people. I look forward to your interest.
Until then, warm wishes for 2010!
