Today is Earth Day and with all the talk about the environment and being green these days I decided we should do something to protect the planet. After you told me about the kelp shortage (too bad because I was looking forward to a little seaweed salad now and again!) I realized that Laloo’s partnership with the WaterKeepers Alliance to help protect groundwater resources is very green. Well, actually it’s green and blue! Proceeds of sales from specially marked packages of Laloo’s lactose friendly ice cream will go to three specific Waterkeepers projects in New York, Santa Monica and San Francisco to help restore biodiversity and protect our natural waterways.
I am inspired to do more. I want all goat dairies to be green and blue. I have launched www.CleanFarmCleanWater.org to help educate and support biodiversity and clean practices at goat farms everywhere. A declaration to create industry standards of green and responsible farming is part of this new charter and I hope all my other Nubian, LaMancha, Saanen, Alpine, Oberhasli and Toggenburg friends agree that it is urgent that we protect water; one of our most precious natural resources!
