Green PolkaDot Box™ founder Rod Smith and the Organic Consumers Association, an online and grassroots non-profit 501©3 public interest organization campaigning for health, justice, and sustainability, are pleased to announce a much needed solution to consumers seeking accessibility to affordable organic and non-GMO foods.
The Green Polka Dot Box (GPDB) is a new national distribution service focused on the home delivery of organic and natural non-GMO products at 30-50% below the cost of retail, providing an inexpensive alternative to supporters of the Organic Consumer Association.
According to Ronnie Cummins, National Director, the Organic Consumers Association (OAC), in his recent essay, Whole Paycheck and Organic Food Deserts: The Challenge, he challenges Americans to step up the pace and qualitatively expand and support the sales of organic foods and products across the United States by ordering non-perishable organic and non-GMO products offered through the Green PolkaDot Box buying club at 30-50% below average retail prices.
“Two major obstacles to buying more organic food for many Americans are cost and accessibility. Many of us need to budget our food dollars more carefully in order to purchase more organic foods. Others of us live in Organic Food Deserts, where the closest co-op or natural food store is a long distance away. The Green Polka Dot Box represents a step forward to solving these problems and expanding the organic market,” said Ronnie Cummins, Organic Consumer Association.
