Improve the USDA Certified Organic Seal!

Source: Organic.org

The USDA Organic label is an important tool in guiding consumer decisions, but the rigid usage guidelines imposed by the National Organic Program (NOP) often make it extremely costly for companies to use this icon effectively. Regulations require that all organic packaging bearing the USDA Organic seal be printed either in full color, which is often prohibitively expensive, or black which can be difficult to see.  

We would like to propose a single color logo that can be used on any packaging without additional cost to the manufacturer. Click here to view examples of the current and proposed logo styles.

Please join our parent company, Foerstel Design, in seeing to it that this regulation is changed by writing a letter to the Program Manager of the USDA NOP:
