When your reason for being, when your very sales pitch in a competitive industry is that you’re organic and the others aren’t, the last thing you want is to announce that, ‘Oops! Testing found pesticide in our product, dudes.’
If you’re someone who thinks the world should use less oil, that we shouldn’t be building pipelines, that we should do everything we can to move away from fossil fuels, do I have an energy stock for you.
Mining is for old guys.
