Silk Soy Milk Loses its Way: Adventures in Corporate Unsustainability

My family has been a customer of Silk Soy for well over seven years. As of today, we quit. Why? Two reasons:

1) the soy beans aren't organic anymore
2) they're from China

Anyone who trusts food from China is being foolish. Remember this? Not to mention the carbon costs of transporting food all that way...

Read all about how Dean Foods destroyed its brand and beat up on American organic farmers at the same time. I thought about writing them or calling them, but it's less work to just switch. They're obviously not going to listen to their customers anyway.

Just another example of the short-term, unsustainable mindset of the multinational company.
