The Santa Cruz company has various comestibles for sale. While this is not an endorsement, I do wish to present a request to them via my blog. The reason is because I had emailed them over two years ago and never received any feedback. So perhaps with all my Going True Green blog readers also submitting this request with social media, we may actually see a response or implementation!
Yes, I like the fact that their juice comes in "glass" bottles, products are Organic and Non GMO verified, 100% of electricity used to make various products is offset with certified renewable energy (verify at Green-e.org) and their California manufacturing facility has a platinum level Zero Waste certification—the highest level offered.
One morning I noticed on one of their labels the need for one additional line of directions, my original email is below:
Hello everyone at the Santa Cruz company,
As an Environmental Scientist, Energy Consultant and the President of GoingTrueGreen.com, I have enjoyed many of your products immensely. One morning while reading your label on the Santa Cruz Organic Orange Mango 100% juice I saw the following in small print by the Bar Code:
Natural separation may occur,
Shake before enjoying.
Refrigerate after opening.
This is excellent, but can you consider adding one more line to your label: " Recycle after consuming ".
Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
If any reader agrees with the inclusion of my suggestion and is so incline, please add/share your request for this important addition. Thank you.
