It's good to know that the organic creamery behind Eros Organic Greek Yogurt is 100% solar energy.

It's evident that Eros cares so much about their suppliers and the way they make their yogurt. As a consumer, it's nice to know that I can trust a brand like Eros due to its thoughtfulness in the origin of the raw ingredients and the processes to turn them into a delicious yogurt. Kudos to you.

I'm always aware how important it is to know that you have consumer power. Like when I shop at Whole Foods, I am aware of the contributions they make to the community (since I've been on the receiving end three different separate times with nonprofits I've worked for). Eros is not only providing a great resource for the Earth, but also setting an example. When companies choose to make these decisions, they should know that we, as consumers, make a conscious choice when we purchase their goods over others (like other yogurt companies). Information like that reminds me of my power in changing the world by choosing companies that align with my interests....and Eros, I'm proud to learn about your energy choices, and how to show that by buying my Eros yogurt at Whole Foods my next trip! :)

Its refreshing in a time/world that has become so challenging that old fashion values and from the heart goes into what Eros stands for. From their employees to the cows and to being environmentally aware and caring of nature ....it shows in their product. Thank you Eros !

What a great story not only about the multi generational family farm but the desire to do what is best for the environment. They seem to have a vision of running a business that serves many customers who share the same philosophy as theirs….a great organic product, lower carbon footprints, and happy employees. I buy lots of yogurt for my family of four. We all have enjoyed the consistency of the greek yogurts but I have to admit, I have not tried "Eros" yet. After hearing their story, I will be buying and having my whole family give it a try. I will tell them there is a good story that goes with it.

Like that the cows are free on the hillside and how you treat your workers. :) Wish all company's were like that. And, let's not leave out the solar panels, way to save energy.

I think that it is great that Eros uses only solar power in their creamery. Great going Eros!

I believe the proof of the efforts of this company to obtain a good product can be seen and tested in the purchase of this yogurt.

I have visited several dairies. I am impressed with how healthy the cows look on the Diamond's ranch. Better products do come from better beginnings.

I'm so proud to be a consumer of your product! It makes me feels so good to know that the food I'm eating was grown in a sustainable environment that is helping to leave the world in a better place. Thank you for treating you cows like living creatures and for going even further with the solar panels. Thank you so much!

After just reading an article about the tomato growing industry in Florida, I find this to be 360 degrees on the other side. With your solar panels to the treatment of the animals and employees this is so refreshing and it would be wonderful if other businesses would follow suit. I'm looking forward to trying your yogurt if it is available at my Whole Foods.

I've never seen Eros yogurt, even though I buy yogurt almost every week. I will look for it when I come in this weekend, so I can try it. I love organic yogurt. This has to be excellent yogurt, when they went to the trouble and time to figure out exactly how much water to use for cleaning. These people obviously have patience. For them to work that hard on getting the water amount right, you know they had to have worked dilligently to make the perfect yogurt. I can't wait to try it (as soon as I'm over my cold, so I can taste it)!

It is those companies who set the trend in lowering their footprint, waste production and consumption. Only innovators take the time to actually implement these changes and talk proudly of them. It can be done and any other companies that have yet to do so are more concerned about their dollar and less about the world that will be left behind to all our descendants. The planet and resources are here but at some point they will run out and we as a human race would have to wait a long time for them to be replenished and consumed again. Thank you to your company for really making the world take notice!
