"Sugar in the Raw"(tm) a popular "natural" product from Maui is created using controversial agricultural practices. Most egregiously, HC&S (the company that makes it) harvests their sugarcane by burning it. With 35,000 acres on a small island, this results in a massive release of CO2 and choking smoke which is damaging residents' health.
Sugarcane can be harvested without burning (as is done in most of the world) and we would like HC&S to stop cane burning now.
