Green or Not: Big Organic?

There are some that worry that "Big Organic" lowers food quality and weakens standards — that it has lost its roots as an eco-friendly system connecting consumers with the land where their food is grown. In addition, some say there are major carbon footprint issues when you're shipping organic food across the country.

Others say that Big Organic gives more consumers access to high-quality food and keeps prices down. It's also good for the environment because fewer pesticides and fertilizers will pollute the air and water.
