Santa Cruz Organic: ONE Tour

September 20, 2012

ONE Tour

Santa Cruz Organic has a juice & apple sauce flavor to suit anyone’s unique taste. Many products come in convenient travel sizes–perfect for packing for lunch or even grabbing while you run out the door to start your busy day.

During this season of the Organic & Natural Experience tour, we have been sampling two juices and an apple sauce. In particular, the tour has featured the Santa Cruz Organic Cherry Lemonade, Orange Mango, and the Apple Cinnamon Sauce Cups.

What are people saying after trying it for themselves?

From the Austin Old Pecan Street Festival:
“It tastes like it was just made.”
“Cherry lemonade–I never thought that could taste so good.”
“The apple sauce tastes like fresh apples.”

From the Boulder Creek Festival:
“This lemonade is delicious and not watered-down like a lot of other brands.”
“My kids love apple sauce and I normally won’t give it to them because they have added sugars–so this is perfect!”
“An apple sauce made with apple sauce? Love it!”

From the Portland Rose Festival:
“This lemonade is something special!”
“I love the apple sauce! It’s so cinnamon-y.”
“Cherry and lemonade together? That’s a unique flavor.”

From the Bite of Seattle:
“This juice reminds me of my childhood.”
“You can taste all the different flavors at once.”
“These are so flavorful!”

Organic Certification

Each and every product from Santa Cruz Organic is certified USDA Organic. What is certified USDA Organic? A product that contains at least 95% organic ingredients (excluding water or salt), whose remaining 5% of ingredients “are not commercially available in an organic form” and are “not produced using specifically prohibited methods” (for more in-depth information, click here).

Any product that meets this criteria is labeled organic and can be labeled with the organic seal (pictured above).

Helping the Earth

Renewable Energy  Santa Cruz Organic is a big supporter of renewable energy, and uses various forms (such as solar energy and capturing and converting methane gas to electricity) to produce energy for a manufacturing facility in Chico, CA. Santa Cruz Organic also buys renewable energy, which prevents a large sum of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere.

Reducing Waste  Did you know…last year in 2011, Santa Cruz Organic was able to recycle 99.5% of the items that came into its production facility! In addition, the company has received props from the Waste Reduction Awards Program (WRAP) for the past 12 years, acknowledging Santa Cruz’s actions to save energy, recycle more, and ultimately reduce waste.
