Organic Food Facts

Currently U.S. sales of organic food have reached about 3%. By reaching 10% we could:

  • Eliminate pesticides from about 98 million daily U.S. servings of drinking water.
  • Fight climate change by capturing an additional 6.5 billion pounds of carbon in the soil. That's the equivalent of taking 2 million cars, each averaging 12,000 miles per year, off the road.
  • Eliminate 2.9 billion barrels of imported oil annually, an amount that would fill 406,000 eight-lane Olympic-size swimming pools.
  • Restore 25,800 square miles of degraded soil - an area roughly the size of West Virginia - to rich, highly productive cropland.
