EPA clean water rollbacks/Understanding ‘organic’ and ‘locally grown’ labels

September 13, 2019

Chris Higgins of HortAmerica joins us to help explain what the labels ‘organic’ and ‘locally grown’ on food products actually mean – and they are still useful. 

Some rules under the Clean Water Act were recently repealed by the US EPA. While the move is praised by some in the agriculture industry, environmentalists are saying now is not the time to put clean water at risk. To help us understand what the roll-back means, we’re joined by Bart Johnsen-Harris, clean water advocate with Environment America.
