We’re excited to be part of the “Rodale Institute Approved” program! In the program, the Rodale Institute is partnering with select brands to create “Rodale Institute Approved” products that support regenerative organic agriculture.
When you see the Rodale Institute Approved logo, you’ll know that the product was grown and produced in a way that supports healthy soil, healthy people, and a healthy planet. A portion of the proceeds of the products in the program support Rodale Institute regenerative organic agriculture research and farmer to farmer training programs.
“Rodale Institute Approved” is not another standard or certification. Rather, it’s a recognition of farms and producers who are going above and beyond in their sourcing and farming practices. Rodale Institute Approved is Rodale Institute’s “seal of approval” on a product that has been grown or produced in a way that supports healthy soil, healthy people, and a healthy planet. You can look for that green “seal of approval” on two Organic Mechanics products, the Premium Blend Potting Soil and the Planting Mix Compost Blend.
“Rodale Institute Approved represents a partnership between a brand that values regenerative organic practices and Rodale Institute,” says Jeff Tkach, chief growth officer for Rodale Institute. “These partnerships allow us to be directly in a consumer’s kitchen or garden educating them about important farming practices that affect their everyday lives.”
About the partnership, Organic Mechanics President Mark Highland says, “We are excited for this opportunity to collaborate with Rodale Institute, as we share Rodale’s passion for regenerative organic agriculture. Rodale Institute has been a pioneer in researching best practices in organic agriculture for almost a century, and we are proud to have Organic Mechanics products be selected as Rodale Institute Approved.”
