How Green is My Dairy?

By Deb Osza of Winners Drink Milk

What do Shamrock shakes, Derby Sage cheese and brightly colored smoothies that include spinach have in common?  They are green.  It’s St. Patrick’s Day, and we celebrate all things green. Did you know that dairy is green and getting greener? 

Dairy Farmers are the world's first recyclers.  Cows play a major recycling role as well.  They consume food we can't, turn it into food we can and add back food for the soil.  Click here to watch a brief video about dairy and sustainability.

Not only has dairy reduced its carbon footprint, farmers are finding ways to produce energy.  When you're looking to purchase 'green' products, pick up a gallon of milk.  It's green and getting greener.
