Stonyfield shrinks its corporate footprint with plant-based plastics, despite the specter of GM corn

Stonyfield Farm opened for business in 1983 with just seven cows, two families and one important principle: Do not harm the planet. Early recycling efforts started simply, with donations of waste yogurt to nearby pig farms, and used buckets to local bee farmers for honey collection. As the company grew, this drive for sustainable practice took on much wider scope, with more sophisticated permutations. The Stonyfield of today ferments a culture of proactive environmental change.
