I’m a fan of the C&C blog, and I really wanted to have more people read this post, with an awesomely delivered smack-down to Sara Lee, for their new line of “sustainable” coffee.
“The statement that UTZ is the most credible and comprehensive certification program is just false.
The most comprehensive and credible program for “protecting, preserving and improving” the environment is the Smithsonian Bird-Friendly certification, which requires organic certification and has other stringent criteria. I wrote an entire post describing how the UTZ environmental criteria are the weakest of all the major certifications.”
I’ve spent most of the morning cleaning and scrubbing to get a classroom up to snuff, so I’ll let you check out more coffee info while I collapse into a heap.
