LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – As we are approaching Earth Day many people are thinking of different ways to be more sustainable.

To help us learn a bit more about agriculture and sustainability we spoke with the 73rd Alice in Dairyland.

Alice in Dairyland acts as an ambassador for agriculture in the state.

Her goals are to educate people about farming and how it has developed in recent years.

Farmers are doing their part to help curb climate change and reduce their carbon footprint.

“Leading up to Earth Day I want everyone to know that Wisconsin dairy products are responsibly and sustainably produced by dairy farmers. And over the last 70 years, Farmers have reduced their carbon footprint of a glass of milk by two-thirds,” said Julia Nunes, the 73rd Alice In Dairyland.

While the carbon footprint for milk is reduced, it still has the same nutritional benefits and great taste.
