Why this matters

The problem

Fixing our food system starts in our homes and communities, and it starts with simple choices. Think about where your food comes from: is it from a local ecological farm or some unknown corporate factory farm? Think about how much meat you eat: could you eat less, or none at all? Every step we take to eat less meat, better meat, and more plants — and every time we talk about those choices with our communities and governments — grows the movement for a better food future.

Corporate agribusiness and factory farming have broken our food system, and staying silent only keeps us from fixing it. These corporations are destroying our climate, forests, rivers, and oceans only to provide low quality products that lack the nutrition our bodies need. To create the healthy future our children deserve, it’s time for a change.

What you can do

Not convinced of the impact meat and dairy have on our ecosystems? Consider this. In terms of mass, there’s more cattle than human on the planet. The weight of the global cattle population passed 130 million tonnes in 2010, with humans at just 100 million tonnes.
