A lot of people are angry these days—and rightfully so. They’re angry about politics, pollution, climate change, health care, immigration policies and more. There are a lot of concerned eaters out there, too, who are upset and frustrated about the negative effects of industrial agriculture on our health and the environment.
Families around the world are facing the threat of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, toxic emissions, diet-related diseases and other health concerns as the result of our reliance on so-called ‘cheap’ food. People are mad about unfair treatment of workers in the U.S. meat processing industries, among the lowest paid of all workers, with few rights or benefits—despite often difficult, dangerous working conditions. At the same time, industrial meat production is not only polluting our air and waterways with toxic waste, but is pumping out invisible greenhouse gases and fueling climate change. Many individuals across the world are also waking up to the impact of industrial farming systems on the welfare of billions of farmed animals. And, farmers are being increasingly driven out of business—or distressingly, to suicide—by a food system that prioritizes corporate profits over stable farms and rural communities.
Trust us, we get it. We’re mad, too! But we can’t just wait for this broken food system to fix itself. That is never going to happen. We have to work together and make changes for ourselves. Our future depends on US. We cannot let ourselves sink into the doom and gloom of the world. We each have the power to make a difference through the food choices we make three times a day… and it’s time to take action!
A few suggestions to start making a change:
We can do this. Let’s stop feeling powerless and participate in making a change! We’re all in this together and how we move forward will determine our future. Join us and become part of a growing movement to build a better food system—and A Greener World. What will you do today?
