HAYDEN, Ohio, Dec. 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — On this World Soil Day, Tractor Beverage Company announced that it has eliminated 78.2 tons of synthetic pesticides from the global food system since 2020. To celebrate this environmental accomplishment and to meet fans’ demands, recording artist Valerie June today released her full rendition of Duran Duran’s hit “Ordinary World.” A shorter version of the song was featured in Tractor’s award-winning “Escape the Ordinary” ad campaign—viewed more than 77 million times.
This highly anticipated release seamlessly blends Valerie June’s soulful vocals with the timeless allure of Duran Duran’s music, delivering a captivating performance. The full version is available for streaming HERE.
“Amidst the shifting climate, conflicts, and the narratives of our personal hardships, envisioning a more harmonious existence for the entire planet can feel daunting,” shared June, Grammy-nominated artist. “My rendition of ‘Ordinary World’ is a reflection of this paradox. Despite the daily challenges we encounter, there is inherent beauty in the ordinary. A modest and simple act of tending to the earth or showing kindness to a stranger unveils the extraordinary hidden within.”
Eliminating Synthetic Pesticides One Cup at A Time.
Tractor is one of North America’s fastest-growing beverage brands and the first and only Certified Organic, Non-GMO total beverage solution for the foodservice industry. To help consumers and pouring partners see the impact of their choice to drink organic, the company created its proprietary Organic Impact Tracker (OIT) in partnership with sustainability research company, HowGood. For every cup of Tractor consumed, the tracker shows the impact in five vital measurements:
- Synthetic Pesticides and Carbon Emissions Avoided (measured in tons),
- Improved Soil Health and Organic Land Supported (measured in acres)
- Water Saved (measured in gallons).
“Consumer demand for clean ingredients and environmental responsibility has been a driving force behind Tractor’s commitment to transparency,” said Justin Herber, Chief Brand Officer for Tractor Beverage Company. “Since day one, Tractor’s commitment has been to creating full-flavored beverages from clean ingredients, aligning with what we envisioned for our own families. This founding principle has naturally connected us with consumers who share our values, recognizing the crucial link between a healthy environment and the quality of our products.”
Herber continued, “As the first and only Certified Organic, Non-GMO beverage company for QSR, we understand that small choices add up to a world of change. Celebrating World Soil Day is not just a commemoration for us; it’s a testament to our unwavering dedication to environmental stewardship and the way of being that resonates with the growing demand for sustainable choices in the market.”
To date, the company has eliminated 78.2 tons of synthetic pesticides. A full report can be found at https://drinktractor.com/organic-impact-tracker/.
