Yale Blue Green (NYC): Environmental Impacts of Yogurt - New York’s Official Snack

Yale Blue Green (NYC): Environmental Impacts of Yogurt - New York’s Official Snack
Mon, 10/29/2018 - 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Join us on Monday, October 29th for our #Foodtober18 panel event: "Grab a Spoon: The Environmental Impacts of Yogurt - New York’s Official Snack"

In 2014, Governor Cuomo called yogurt the ‘official snack’ of New York State - but is this a good choice for the State? New York is the top producer of yogurt in the US, with more than 700 million pounds produced in 2013. Learn from one of the top experts in the field, Alexis Andiman, an attorney at Earthjustice, about how the organization is using the legal system to mitigate the environmental impacts of dairy farming, including those associated with increased Greek yogurt production occurring upstate. Environmental impacts include fecal runoff and contaminants from the production process - which can all be exacerbated by climate change. The panel helps provide insight on one of the hottest food trends, and what’s being done to address the environmental impacts.

Organic wine and vegan treats will be served.
