Free Webinar – Toxic’s Still Not Tasty: Oil Wastewater and Your Food

By Kate Frisher, Campaigns Coordinator

Last year, our Think Before You Pink® campaign called out the practice of using oil wastewater to irrigate crops. This water, which is a byproduct of the oil extraction process, contains hundreds of added and naturally occurring chemicals that are harmful to human health, potentially putting the health of farmworkers and consumers at risk.

Now  we’re digging deeper. We had a win last year when our target, Bee Sweet Citrus, stopped pinkwashing their products. Yet major agricultural companies continue to use oil wastewater to grow our food.
